Long term ATM services agreement by Cardtronics and Kroger extended
An agreement to start a new, longstanding ATM service between Cardtronics, world’s leading ATM owner com operator and The Kroger Co., nation’s leading traditional grocery retailer, was declared in HOUSTON.

"With the extensive geographical reach of the Kroger family of companies, Cardtronics is individually capable, given the scale of its global functioning, of being a nationwide ATM services provider for many of our grocery and convenience stores. Cardtronics has helped us make favorable cash retrieve part of the Kroger shopping experience since 2010 and will continue doing so for many years to come," comments Kathleen Kelly, president, Kroger Personal Finance.
"Our successful six-year relationship with the Kroger family of companies has been a growth story. Cardtronics has grown to become the largest single provider of ATM services to Kroger stores and its several local banner names nationwide.
