“Supply chain bottlenecks are affecting almost every restaurant across the country – this opportunity comes at an ideal time for small independent restaurants,” said Corey Mobley, executive director of the North Texas Region of the Texas Restaurant Association. “We are proud to work with Kroger to strengthen our industry.”
“Running a restaurant has always been difficult – and today it seems to be harder than ever,” said Jay SchergerDirector, Kroger Technology & Digital/E-Commerce Accelerator. “This new service will bring our fresh assortment directly to regional businesses – all at consistent pricing, product availability and delivery rate they can rely on.”
Regional restaurants, bakeries and catering businesses are welcome to participate in this service which offers free next day delivery on all orders of $250 or more. Businesses can order before midnight and receive next day deliveries seven days a week.
“Like our resident customers, we know our commercial customers want options and solutions that deliver fresh food, consistent pricing and reliability,” said Keith Shoemaker, president of the Kroger Dallas division. “When our DFW restaurants think of food, we want them to think of Kroger. We look forward to delivering this new offering and expanding our global grocery ecosystem.”
