Kroger Houston Division today announced their partnership with several local restaurants in an effort to support local businesses.
Kroger has teamed up with local minority-owned restaurants Burns BBQ and Kim Son, offering a selection of chef-prepared meals at pop-up locations in select Houston area stores.
“One of my favorite things about Texas is the food. We are thrilled to support our local community and local businesses by offering prepared meals through this partnership.” Said Joe Kelley, Kroger President.
Offering Texas favorites such as ribs, brisket and sausage links, Burns BBQ has been featured in Texas Monthly and on TV with Anthony Bourdain. Cory Crawford, of Burns BBQ said, “Burns Original BBQ is excited to and thankful to partner with Kroger to serve some of our world-famous dishes.”
Kim Su Tran La (known affectionately as “Mama La”) founded Kim Son Restaurant in Vinh Long, Vietnam. In 1982, Mama La re-established her Kim Son Restaurant with her husband, Son, in Houston’s Chinatown. With more than 250 recipes committed to memory, she tapped into her extensive knowledge of restaurant operation and traditional Vietnamese cooking to put her new restaurant on the map, and have since expanded to include a restaurant in Lake Charles, L’Auberge Casino Resort.
“The Kim Son Family is proud to partner with Kroger to make fresh, authentic Vietnamese food accessible to all Houstonians during this unprecedented time,” said Tri La of Kim Son. “Many of your customer-favorite dishes will be available for purchase in convenient single size servings.”
