The Kroger Co. announced that it will add a new customer fulfillment center in Aurora, CO, and serve the Denver metro area as it continues to expand its tech-driven delivery network.

Additional fulfillment centers in South Florida and the Northeast of the United States also are part of Kroger’s plans.
“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 senior vp and chief supply chain officer, in announcing the Aurora FC. “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.”
