Kroger's Dallas Division is making it simpler for local restaurants to keep their customer-favorite items on the menu. The grocer is launching Kroger Restaurant Supply exclusively in the Greater Dallas area. 

The retailer's new restaurant supply service connects local operators with fresh food at wholesale prices.

Kroger Restaurant Supply offers an alternative to ordering in large quantities, which have highly variable pricing and require deliveries on a set schedule. This service offers competitive wholesale pricing, opportunities to purchase items by the case or unit and seven-day-a-week delivery, the company said.

"Supply chain bottlenecks are impacting nearly every restaurant across the country – this opportunity comes at a great time for small and independent restaurants," Corey Mobley, executive director of the North Texas Region of the Texas Restaurant Association, said. "We're proud to work with Kroger to strengthen our industry."

"Running a restaurant has always been difficult – and today it feels like it's harder than ever," said Jay Scherger, director of Kroger Technology & Digital/E-Commerce Accelerator. "This new service will bring our fresh assortment directly to regional businesses – all at consistent prices, product availability and delivery cadence they can count on."

Regional restaurants, bakeries and catering companies are invited to take part in this service that offers free next-day delivery on all orders of $250 or more. Businesses can order by midnight and receive next-day deliveries seven days a week, the company said.

"Like our resident shoppers, we know our commercial customers want options and solutions that offers fresh food, consistent pricing and reliability," said Keith Shoemaker, president of Kroger Dallas Division. "When our DFW restaurants think food, we want them to think Kroger. We look forward to providing this new offering and extension of our overall grocery ecosystem."
