Kroger breaking ground on $55M Butler County facility that will bring more than 400 jobs

Kroger and Ocado are set to break ground this morning in Butler County for the first-ever U.S. high-tech customer fulfillment center.

Kroger is investing $55 million to build the 335,000-square-foot facility at 6266 Hamilton Lebanon Road in Monroe, which will be the first of 20 in America.

It’s expected to create more than 410 new jobs.

Kroger purchased the more than 98-acre property along Ohio 63 on March 20 for $3.1 million, according to Butler County Auditor’s Office records.

The Ohio Tax Credit Authority voted last December to approve an 8-year, 1.362 percent tax credit for the project.
