Kroger Delivery expands in Kentucky

July 28, 2023
Grocery retailer opens new Independence spoke facility delivering fresh food in refrigerated trucks directly to customers’ doors in the Mt. Zion and Northern Kentucky areas.

The Kroger Co. recently opened a new spoke facility in Independence, Kentucky.

Area customers now can tap into Kroger’s selection of fresh items, Our Brands products, and national brands, as well as individualized offers for products important to their families—all delivered directly to their door.

“We are thrilled to expand our offerings to Northern Kentucky and connect more customers to the Kroger Delivery shopping experience, which brings thousands of digital coupons, valuable fuel points, and the freshest products, including Our Brands, directly to customers’ doors,” Rebekah Manis, senior director for Kroger Delivery fulfillment centers, said in a news release. “Our customers are actively looking for ways to save, and Kroger Delivery offers a fresh, affordable and personalized shopping experience with zero compromise on affordability, selection, and convenience.

“Whether they are using the Kroger app or browsing our weekly ad at Kroger.com, customers can enjoy fresh, high-quality, affordable groceries delivered by best-in-class uniformed drivers.”

The new spoke facility will work in conjunction with the Monroe, Ohio, fulfillment center, Kroger said. All orders are picked at the products’ peak freshness within the Monroe facility. Associates carefully assemble orders and place them in climate-controlled vehicles to travel to Independence. Once the orders arrive, they are checked and placed on refrigerated delivery trucks that deliver directly to customers’ doors, ensuring cold and frozen products remain at the perfect temperature from the supplier to the customer’s refrigerator.

The facility will employ nearly 100 associates and currently employs more than 70.

“Kroger is a major employer in Northern Kentucky, and we welcome the nearly 100 new jobs the company will add at its facility in Boone County,” said Gary Moore, Boone County judge and executive. “As the fastest-growing county in the Cincinnati MSA, we know demand is increasing for home deliveries to customers here and throughout Northern Kentucky.”
