Don’t be scared, ghost kitchen coming to Columbus Kroger will deliver the goods

Although the news seems fit for this spooky season, the fact that the Kroger at 7625 Sawmill Rd. in Dublin, Ohio will soon be the site of a “ghost kitchen” is not as scary as the name suggests. 

Ghost kitchens are simply restaurants with no dine-in area, and the Dublin Kroger will be devoting 1,000 square ft. to such a restaurant.


“The new on-premise kitchen, in partnership with ClusterTruck, is an innovation that streamlines ordering, preparation and delivery, supporting Kroger as we meet the sustained customer demand for quick, fresh restaurant-quality meals, especially as we navigate an unprecedented health crisis that has affected every aspect of our lives, including mealtime,” said vice president of fresh merchandising Dan De La Rosa.

According to Kroger, customers will be able to order from a ClusterTruck menu of more than 80 meals, spanning a variety of ingredients. They describe it in their news release as “food quality you can get at a sit-down restaurant with the personality of street food,” and maintain that meals will be delivered to your door an average of 30 minutes after you place your order. Another perk of the on-demand meal kitchen will be the lack of service or delivery fees. 

The ClusterTruck ghost kitchen at the Dublin Kroger is expected to open later this year.
