A study by Placer.ai ranked the grocers with the greatest share of store visits in Ohio, with Ohio-based Kroger coming in first.
What is the preferred grocery chain in Ohio?
That is the question that placer.ai wanted to answer, and so it analyzed data to see which chain ranked best.
Coming in first place was Kroger, which accounted for 43% of grocery store visits in Ohio. Meijer was the second most visited store, taking up 15% of store visits, while Giant Eagle Supermarket was in third place with 12% of grocery store visits in Ohio.
Given the rising food prices across the country, competition in the grocery industry is set to heat up as customers look for the best prices possible.
Founded by Bernard Kroger in 1883 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Kroger operates 2,720 retail grocery stores across 35 states and has over 465,000 employees. Its head office is still located in Cincinnati.
According to Insider, "Kroger's influence is set to grow, both in the Midwest and nationally, if its proposed $24.6 billion merger with rival Albertsons is approved by federal regulators."
