North Carolina governor Roy Cooper, North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore, Greensboro mayor Nancy Vaughan and Publix CEO Todd Jones participated in a groundbreaking ceremony on Publix’s new refrigerated distribution center in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The distribution center will be over 940,000 square feet and create up to 1,000 jobs across the region by 2025. In addition, phase one of the project will support more efficient delivery of refrigerated products to Publix locations in the Carolinas and Virginia, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. The Greensboro facility will be Publix’s tenth distribution center.
“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.”
