Kroger, Ocado Select Central Florida for Second Customer Fulfillment Center
GROVELAND, FLA. — The Kroger Co. and Ocado, an online grocery retailer based in England, have selected Groveland as the second city to house the partnership’s customer fulfillment center (CFC). Kroger has committed to build 20 CFCs in partnership with Ocado. In November, the partnership announced that Monroe, Ohio will be the site of the first CFC. The Groveland center will consist of an automated warehouse facility with digital and robotic capabilities. The CFC will span 375,000 square feet at American Way near U.S. Highway 27, about 31 miles west of Orlando. The partnership is scheduled to break ground later this year and open the center in 2021.
