Kroger locating new distribution center in Boone County

FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kroger Fulfillment Network, part of The Kroger Co., will locate a new distribution center, also known as a spoke or cross-docking facility, in Boone County, investing over $550,000 and creating nearly 100 full-time jobs.

The new facility will support the customer fulfillment center currently operating in Monroe, Ohio, by extending customers’ access to affordable, healthy and fresh foods.  The company will locate the facility in a 2,000-square-foot portion of an existing building in Boone County and will create 98 quality jobs for Kentucky residents.

“Kentucky’s unique location and access to resources make our distribution and logistics sector one of the strongest in the country,” Gov. Andy Beshear said.  “We are continuing to see announcements in this sector that are bringing incredible opportunities and jobs to our communities across the state.  I want to thank Kroger and their leadership for expanding their operations in Kentucky yet again and continuing to believe in what this state has to offer.”
