Here’s how Empire makes data and technology work harder.

Data is only as good as the people who analyze it. Empire category managers bring to bear an exceptional wealth of knowledge, both Kroger specific and industrywide. As a result, we’re able to mine data with precision, expertly identifying unique, actionable insights to give you a competitive edge in the marketplace.

We analyze your retail customer data on a regular basis to identify buying trends and create fresh ideas proactively rather than reactively.

Our team is positioned to assist with sales planning, new product presentations and filling gaps in distribution.

Utilizing multiple data resources, we are able to identify products in need of promotional or pricing assistance and develop solutions in response.

Take advantage of Empire’s unique capabilities across the board.

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.
