Spoke Facility Boosts Kroger Delivery In Northern Colorado

Kroger

The Kroger Co. has opened a 57,000-square-foot spoke facility in Johnstown, Colorado, that will work in conjunction with its fulfillment center in the nearby Denver suburb of Aurora.

“We look forward to connecting more customers in Northern Colorado to Kroger Delivery, which brings the freshest products including Our Brands, directly to customers’ doors,” said Rebekah Manis, senior director, Kroger Delivery Fulfillment Centers.

“Kroger Delivery enables us to meet our customers’ unique needs and deliver value, like exceptional friendly service from our best-in-class uniformed drivers, and a personalized shopping experience with zero-compromise on convenience, value and selection.”

All orders are picked within the Aurora facility. Employees assemble and place them in climate-controlled vehicles to travel to Johnstown. 

Once they arrive, they are checked and placed on refrigerated delivery trucks, ensuring cold and frozen products remain at the correct temperature. 

“We couldn’t be happier having Kroger establish a fulfillment center in our community,” said Troy Mellon, town council mayor of Johnstown. 

“Services like this help to not only create jobs in our community, but also allow us to focus on a core value of the Town, which is to spend more time with family and friends and doing the activities we love in Colorado.”

Customers can access digital coupons using Boost by King Soopers, the annual grocery delivery membership program. They can try the membership with a free 30-day trial and start subscribing for $7.99 a month. 

“We are always seeking opportunities that blend technology, sustainability and convenience to enhance the lives of our residents,” said Jody Shadduck-McNally, board chair and county commissioner of Larimer County. “Kroger’s commitment to advancing grocery e-commerce with this spoke facility is a testament to the innovative spirit that thrives in Northern Colorado.”

The expansion represents an extension of a collaboration between Kroger and Ocado Group. In 2018, the companies announced a collaboration to establish a delivery network that combines artificial intelligence, advanced robotics and automation.

Kroger operates customer fulfillment centers in Monroe, Ohio; Groveland, Florida; Forest Park, Georgia; Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin; Dallas, Texas; Romulus, Michigan; Aurora, Colorado; and Frederick, Maryland, with additional customer fulfillment network facilities planned in the future.
