Suburban Propane expands partnership with Syracuse University Athletics

Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Suburban Propane, by way of Agway Energy Services, has proven to be the perfect partner for Syracuse UniversityAthletics and our Football and Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs, and we are thrilled to be expanding the partnership into new and exciting areas this upcoming season.
