Kroger Establishes Miami, Florida, Spoke Facility

American retail company Kroger established a new spoke facility in Miami, Florida. The project is expected to create 90 jobs.

The 60,000-square-foot location will work in conjunction with the company’s Groveland fulfillment center.

"We are thrilled to connect more Floridians to the Kroger Delivery shopping experience, which brings thousands of digital coupons, valuable fuel points and the freshest products directly to customers' doors," said Bill Bennett, Kroger Vice President, and Head of E-commerce. "Whether they are using the Kroger app or browsing our weekly ad at, customers can enjoy fresh, high-quality, affordable groceries delivered by best-in-class uniformed drivers."

The Kroger Company is an American retail company that operates supermarkets and multi-department stores throughout the U.S. The company has roughly half a million employees across 2,800 stores in 35 states operating two dozen grocery retail brands and 34 manufacturing and 44 distribution locations.

"We've been working closely with the Kroger team since they started looking to expand to South Florida and knew this was a geography that would offer significant growth potential," noted James Kohnstamm, Executive Vice President of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council. "From a customer standpoint, we have over a million households and hundreds of new residents relocating to Miami each week. From a workforce standpoint, we have a deep bench of talent with expertise in cold chain and logistics management, as well as multiple startups dedicated to driving innovation in the trade and logistics space."
