About Publix

Publix Supermarket Store Front

We believe in the potential of Publix people. It’s that simple.

By hiring associates with a variety of backgrounds, cultures, abilities and ethnicities, our company is stronger, able to serve our diverse customers and communities.

To foster growth in Publix associates, Mr. George made a point to connect with people, talk with them and get to know them individually. He took a genuine interest in what his associates had to say, their thoughts and dreams.

He believed you needed to “be professional but have human understanding in all business affairs.”

Mr. George shared his way of thinking and instilled foundational values still exercised today: respecting the dignity of the individual, preparing for opportunity and investing in others. Read more about the Publix Culture and how we believe in the potential of our people.
