Kroger Highlight

Empire Marketing Strategies works with Kroger, exclusively.

In the grocery business, experience and relationships matter. With sales teams at Kroger’s headquarters and in every division, we’ve helped brands of all sizes build powerful Kroger partnerships.

Cutting-edge technology leads to smarter decision-making.

Customers are fickle. What motivates and moves them? Your data holds the key, and we’re specialists at mining it to bring you the latest, most relevant insights.
