Kroger is launching a new program to help restaurants stay stocked with ingredients. Launched exclusively in the Greater Dallas area, Kroger Restaurant Supply will allow local restaurants to purchase Kroger items, including own brands, wholesale.
"Running a restaurant has always been difficult – and today it feels like it's harder than ever," said Jay Scherger, director of Kroger technology & digital/eCommerce accelerator. "This new service will bring our fresh assortment directly to regional businesses – all at consistent prices, product availability and delivery cadence they can count on."
Regional restaurants, bakeries and catering companies are invited to take part in the new service that offers free next-day delivery on all orders of $250 or more. Businesses can order by midnight and receive next-day deliveries seven days a week.
"Supply chain bottlenecks are impacting nearly every restaurant across the country – this opportunity comes at a great time for small and independent restaurants," said Corey Mobley, executive director of the North Texas Region of the Texas Restaurant Association. "We're proud to work with Kroger to strengthen our industry."
