Publix to Invest $300 Million to Build Distribution Center in Greensboro, North Carolina

New Refrigerated Facility to Add More Than 1,000 Jobs by 2025
August 30, 2018
Grocery store chain Publix Super Markets plans to build a refrigerated distribution center in Greensboro, North Carolina, by the end of 2022, with Publix investing as much as $300 million in the first phase of a project that will receive a state grant.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced the multiphase project may create up to 1,000 jobs by 2025. Local media outlets have reported the Guilford County distribution center would total 1.8 million square feet and be located on a 350-acre site near the intersection of Birch Creek Road and U.S. Highway 70 in eastern Greensboro.

The refrigerated facility will be used to support grocery products delivery to Lakeland, Florida-based Publix locations in the Carolinas and Virginia.

As a reward for selecting Greensboro for a new distribution center, Publix has been offered a Job Development Investment Grant, approved by the state’s Economic Investment Committee. The state estimates that the project will expand North Carolina’s economy by $1.38 billion over the course of a 12-year term.

As a result, Publix has the potential of receiving up to $13.12 million in reimbursements over the next 12 years from the state, assuming the grocery store chain meets incremental job creation and investment targets provided by the Department of Commerce and Revenue.

North Carolina currently has 42 Publix stores located throughout the state, according to its website. Currently, the nearest existing Publix distribution center is in Jacksonville, Florida, about 450 miles south of Greensboro. In total, Publix has nine distribution centers and 11 manufacturing facilities, according to its website.
