Publix Supermarket Store Front

Publix Culture

This year, we're celebrating 85 years of being the premier food retailer our founder — George W. Jenkins — created. His dream was to open a store that was different — a store that operated on a set of values that everyone could feel when they walked through the door. Throughout the year, we’ll share videos and messages about the lessons Mr. George founded our company upon and how we still follow them today.

Prepare for opportunity

Not long after Mr. George founded Publix, he realized that with a growing company comes the growing need to promote and hire more associates. He encouraged associates to prepare themselves because opportunities were up for grabs. And he created an environment for Publix associates to be successful, if they so desired.

"Success is doing what you like to do — and doing it well. The aim is to learn all you can about the business and do the best job you can for the customer," said Mr. George.

Hundreds of thousands of Publix associates have discovered and reached their career goals here after beginning in entry-level positions and receiving on the job training, coaching and mentoring. Read more about the Publix Culture and how we prepare associates for opportunity today.
