Kroger launching restaurant concept in NKY store

Kroger is getting ready to launch its first restaurant concept, Kitchen 1883, out of it's Union, Ky., store. The restaurant's menu will feature comfort food with made-from-scratch dishes and a bar with hand-crafted cocktails.

With Amazon's recent purchase of Whole Foods and inexpensive alternatives like Aldi, this new enterprise is a way for Kroger, which is the largest grocery chain in America, to raise the bar and get ahead of the competition.

Grocery chains owning and operating restaurants isn't a new thing — Hy-Vee is a franchisee owner of 26 Wahlburger locations, making it the largest franchisee of the burger chain.
