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.

His lessons are what makes Publix so special to our associates, customers and the communities in which we operate. They not only helped build the reputation we’re known for today, but they guide decisions we make from manufacturing and distribution, throughout our corporate offices and in every store. All of the lessons have a common message and meaning to us — do the right thing. His lessons about doing the right thing are what Publix associates refer to as the Publix culture.

So, join us in celebrating our 85th anniversary this year, and learn more about what makes Publix so special.
