Publix to Expand Lakeland, Florida, Headquarters
LAKELAND, FL - One of the Southeast’s most prolific grocery store chains—Publix—is expected to announce an expansion to its Lakeland headquarters this morning.
The chain currently operates 793 stores in the state and is, reportedly, the largest employee-owned grocery chain in the U.S.—employing more than 190,000 people, in the seven state region in which it operates.
News of the expansion comes just one week after Publix announced the expansion of its GreenWise Market banner into the Atlanta, Georgia-area. And at the end of last month, the retailer announced definitive plans to build a much-anticipated $400 million distribution center in Greensboro, North Carolina.
