Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. BB #:100073, can’t handle the heat in South Florida and Central Texas. The company is closing its delivery-only concepts in both markets.

According to a “service update” on its website, the company says it is closing delivery facilities in Austin, San Antonio, and South Florida on May 25.

“We do not make these decisions lightly, and we understand the impact this has on associates, customers, and communities,” the post said. “Despite our best efforts, including support from new customers, learnings from other locations, and the incredible work of our associates, these facilities did not meet the benchmarks we set for success.”

Kroger Delivery will remain in Florida for residents within 90 minutes of facilities in Groveland, Tampa, Jacksonville, and Cocoa Beach.

The services initially launched in San Antonio in August 2022, and Austin in March 2023. South Florida opened in February 2023.
