Have You Seen The Blue Trucks in Orlando?
One of America’s most beloved grocery brands is ready to deliver freshness across the sunshine state! Kroger has launched their new delivery service in Orlando and we are already on board for their unique take on grocery deliveries.
Since Kroger owns the entire service, you’ll never have to worry about a middleman as part of the process. They also use their very own refrigerated trucks, making sure your items are delivered at their utmost fresh. Fresh, temperature-controlled groceries without having to leave your couch? That sounds like a win to us!
