Kroger Dallas Division Offers Restaurant Supply

Specialty Food Association

Kroger's Dallas Division is making it simpler for local restaurants to keep their customer-favorite items on the menu with the launch of Kroger Restaurant Supply, exclusively in Greater Dallas, according to the retailer.

The service offers an alternative to ordering in large quantities that have highly variable pricing and require deliveries on a set schedule. This service offers competitive wholesale pricing, opportunities to purchase items by the case or unit, and seven-day-a-week delivery.

"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, in a statement.

"Running a restaurant has always been difficult—and today it feels like it's harder than ever," said Jay Scherger, director, Kroger technology and digital/ecommerce accelerator, in a statement. "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 this 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.

"Like our resident shoppers, we know our commercial customers want options and solutions that offer fresh food, consistent pricing and reliability," said Keith Shoemaker, president of the Kroger Dallas Division, in a statement. "When our Dallas Fort Worth restaurants think food, we want them to think Kroger."
