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.

Give back

This month, we're focusing on another lesson that was close to our founder's heart — give back. Whether it was to United Way to assist individuals in need or an entire community, Mr. George believed that for any organization to truly be successful, it must give back. And he set the example for all Publix associates by giving his time, money and talent to the communities in which we operate. He was once asked, "Mr. George, how much do you think you’d be worth today if you hadn't given away so much?" Without hesitation he responded, "Probably nothing."
