INDIANAPOLIS — Grub Hub and Uber Eats are getting some new competition.

Kroger announced Monday it's now getting into the meal delivery business, and it's doing so with the help of an Indianapolis startup.

The nation's largest supermarket chain is partnering with ClusterTruck to create 'Kroger Delivery Kitchens.'

According to Kroger, customers will be able to order restaurant-style meals from their kitchens online and have it delivered without a service fee.

For now, the delivery kitchens are only launching in four cities: Indianapolis; Carmel; Columbus, Ohio; and Denver, Colorado.

Kroger says if all goes well, the service may expand to other cities.

"It's an exciting time to join forces with Kroger and launch our first suburban kitchen," Chris Baggott, ClusterTruck co-founder and CEO, said. "We're ready to bring our variety of fresh meals to Kroger's valued customers and provide the meal delivery experience they deserve."
