Murray’s Cheese Opens 400th Location in Houston
Murray’s Cheese and Kroger opened their 400th location in Houston in October. The iconic New York-based cheese shop partnered with the supermarket chain in 2008 to offer the finest selection of cheese, meat and specialty food items to grocery customers across the country.
“Our mission is to continuously educate ourselves and our customers on the pleasures of cheese,” said Nick Tranchina, EVP at Murray’s Cheese. “As we pass this milestone, it’s exciting to see that every day we get to live our mission in ways we would have hardly thought possible when we started this journey with Kroger 10 years ago.”
Murray's Cheese shops in Kroger stores carry hundreds of cheeses, charcuterie, olives, crackers and specialty food items from all over the world. Murray's is deeply involved with product selection, staff training and development, merchandising and promotions across all locations. Murray's has also trained thousands of Cheese Mongers and Certified Cheese Professionals since the relationship began a decade ago.
“This milestone highlights Kroger’s nearly decade-long relationship with Murray’s Cheese. Through these cheese counters, we’re able to offer our customers an unparalleled experience and education about artisanal cheeses and specialty foods,” said Robert Clark, Kroger's SVP of merchandising. “Our partnership with New York’s most iconic cheese shop is just one way we are redefining the food and grocery experience for our customers and associates.”
