The Kroger Co. is expanding its restaurant concept.
The supermarket giant announced plans to open its second full-service Kitchen 1883 restaurant, following the successful launch of the concept last November. (To see a video of the first Kitchen 1883, which is located next to a Kroger Marketplace store in Union, Kentucky, click here.)
"With Kitchen 1883, our vision is to create a gathering place that offers a casual atmosphere for guests to relax and experience food," said Daniel Hammer, Kroger's VP of culinary development and new business. "Since opening our pilot restaurant five months ago, we've discovered new ideas that will help to shape our future dining concepts and in-store fresh food experiences."
Kitchen 1883 offers a fresh take on new American comfort food, featuring a made-from-scratch menu inspired by American and international flavors, hand-crafted cocktails and a community-centered atmosphere. The new location will be a stand-alone restaurant, complete with a patio. It will be located in Anderson Township, a neighborhood in Greater Cincinnati.
The restaurant will operate daily, offering lunch and dinner along with brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. It is scheduled to open in the fall.
"Kitchen 1883 is just one way Kroger is redefining the customer experience through innovative concepts, as we outlined in Restock Kroger," said Hammer.
