RYKOFF-SEXTON TO MOVE DISTRIBUTION OPERATIONS TO NEW LOS ANGELES FACILITY

 LOS ANGELES, May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Rykoff-Sexton Inc. (NYSE: RYK) today announced that it plans to relocate its Los Angeles area distribution operations from the company's corporate headquarters to a new facility here.
 The company is currently considering several locations in the metropolitan Los Angeles area for an approximately 425,000-square- foot warehouse. The company's corporate offices, in-transit warehouses and manufacturing operations will remain at its current downtown location.
 Mark Van Stekelenburg, president and chief executive officer, said he expects that the move will take place within the second half of 1994.
 "We believe that designing and constructing a new food service distribution facility for the Los Angeles distribution branch will greatly improve our ability to service our customers, operate productively and grow our presence in Southern California," Van Stekelenburg said.
