Publix Just Broke Ground On A Massive $400 Million Facility in North Carolina


Publix just broke ground on a massive new $400 million facility in North Carolina that will transform cold storage grocery delivery across the Carolinas and Virginia.

According to a press release from the company, the new distribution center is expected to create at least 1,000 jobs across the region with an average salary of $44,000/year.

The campus will include a 1.1-million-sf refrigerated warehouse, a 120,000-sf food manufacturing facility, and a 1.3-million-sf dry warehouse.

“The Greensboro Distribution Center will play a key role in supporting our growth in the region,” Jones said. “The hundreds of new associates who join the Publix family will help us provide the premier service our customers have come to expect.”

Publix leadership presented donations to two local nonprofit organizations during the groundbreaking ceremony. BackPack Beginnings and Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina each received $2,500 in support of their programs to help alleviate hunger by providing children with backpacks of food.

The new Greensboro facility will be Publix’s 10th distribution center, joining Florida locations in Boynton Beach, Deerfield Beach, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Miami, Orlando and Sarasota; Lawrenceville, Georgia; and McCalla, Alabama.

The new facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
