Kroger announced a rebranding Wednesday that will include a new logo and, for the first time ever, a slogan.
The new slogan, "Fresh for Everyone," will be used across all of its brands including Ralph's, Fry's, Harris Teeter, Fred Meyer and a dozen others. Previously, the store and its other brands didn't have a universal tagline. Kroger hopes the new slogan will help unite its various brands.
"We found fresh is a real point of difference for us," Kroger's vice president of marketing, Mandy Rassi, told CNBC in an interview.
The grocery chain will be launching a mass media campaign across its stores, on TV, radio, social media and more. In celebration of the new branding, the chain will offer shoppers free grocery pickup through Jan. 1.
In Georgia, the company has more than 170 stores with nearly 30,000 employees. It recently opened a splashy new store at 725 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE, with an indoor eatery, B's Cracklin BBQ, and Pub on Ponce Beer & Wine Bar, which has a walk-up window and access to the Beltline.
