Kroger Co. will operate a 2,500-square-foot innovation lab within the University of Cincinnati’s newly opened 1819 Innovation Hub. The goal is to nurture future talent and technology innovations. The initiative will serve as a human resources pipeline to support Kroger’s ongoing business needs. The company will staff the hub with a number of resources, including research and development engineers and software developers who will work alongside UC faculty. “Kroger’s new partnership with the University of Cincinnati is one more way we are investing to create the now and future of retail,” Chris Hjelm, Kroger’s chief financial officer, said. “This innovative collaboration is driven by ‘Restock Kroger’ and provides the Kroger Technology team [with] another creative space to partner and develop solutions to redefine the grocery customer experience.”
