South Florida supermarkets are experiencing unprecedented growth, and the chains are aiming to take advantage of the boom in grocery shopping.
Among them are the Cincinnati chain with 2,800 locations in 35 states and a projected revenue of $132.5 billion in 2020.
Its expansion into Florida has been accompanied by successful e-commerce initiatives.
Kroger is poised to take a large chunk of the grocery delivery business in the Sunshine State.
It is confident it can provide the same level of service and product. However, it is not rushing into the market.
The company plans to expand slowly in the state. However, Kroger has a long history in Florida.
It fought off competition from Lucky's Market, an organic-food chain based in Colorado that opened dozens of stores in the state in 2016.
