Kroger continues to expand its reach, and it is doing so with Ocado Solutions by its side. Building its long-term partnership with Ocado, the grocer recently unveiled a new customer fulfillment center (CFC) in Aurora, Colorado, to further expand its delivery network.
“We are thrilled to expand and introduce our innovative Kroger Fulfillment Network to one of the fastest-growing areas in the country and have the opportunity to grow our workforce,” said Gabriel Arreaga, Kroger’s Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer. “Through the incredible partnership and support from the City of Aurora and Adams County, Kroger Delivery can accelerate its commitment to provide exceptional customer service through our state-of-the-art facility and end-to-end cold solutions, including custom-built refrigerated vans, to ensure our delivery customers receive the freshest products directly to their doorstep throughout the Denver region.”
According to the retailer’s release, this latest expansion in Colorado is a component of the retailer’s strategy to redefine the customer experience in the Denver Metro Area.
“As we continue to expand our nationwide CFC program, Kroger and Ocado Group are now live with five state-of-the-art fulfillment centers across the United States. As this site ramps up, Kroger Delivery will bring a world-class online experience to homes across the Denver Metro area, powered by some of the most advanced technology available anywhere in the world,” said Luke Jensen, Chief Executive Officer of Ocado Solutions.
The nearly 300,000-square-foot distribution center will bring approximately 400 new jobs to Aurora and the surrounding area.
