Publix Supermarket Store Front

Publix is celebrating its 90th anniversary.

Publix 90 years logoThere’s just something so special about celebrating an anniversary! Between our buttercream icing and our cake recipe, our customers keep looking to us to help them celebrate year after year. We love being a part of their special memories and excitement, and now we are celebrating our own!

On Sept. 6, 1930, our founder, George Jenkins, opened the first store in Winter Haven, Florida. We’ve grown to over 1,200 stores across seven states. With 9 distribution centers, 11 manufacturing facilities and a fleet of trucks, we’ve expanded to support the needs of our communities.

Our growth has driven innovation and change over time, but our values shaped by Mr. George have remained the same. Taking care of our customers, communities and each other is still what Publix is all about.

Join us in celebrating and reflecting on 90 years of Publix history. Learn about how we got to where we are today and the Publix Culture that makes Publix a great place to work.
