Kroger, Cardtronics re-up agreement for the long term
Cardtronics has entered into a new, long-term ATM services agreement with The Kroger Co., the nation’s largest traditional grocery retailer.
The renewal extends a relationship between the companies that was established in 2010, according to a press release.
Cardtronics is the largest single provider of ATM services to the Kroger family of stores, which includes both grocery and convenience stores.
Cardtronics currently owns and operates approximately 1,300 ATMs under 13 local Kroger banner names in 32 states, the release said. The vast majority of these cash machines participate in Allpoint Network, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cardtronics.
“With the broad geographical reach of the Kroger family of companies, Cardtronics is uniquely capable, given the scale of its global operations, of being a nationwide ATM services provider for many of our grocery and convenience stores,” Kroger Personal Finance President Kathleen Kelly said in the release. “Cardtronics has helped us make convenient cash access part of the Kroger shopping experience since 2010 and will continue doing so for many years to come.”
“We look forward to continue serving Kroger, including the store traffic we plan to drive with our surcharge-free Allpoint Network, which has expanded its Kroger footprint along with Cardtronics over the years,” said Jonathan Simpson-Dent, chief commercial officer at Cardtronics.
