Mayor Greenberg Joins Publix to Cut Ribbon on First Location in Louisville, Creating 150 Jobs

January 10, 2024

Today, Mayor Craig Greenberg joined local officials and leaders from Publix Super Market to cut the ribbon on the chain’s first Louisville location, which will create 150 jobs.

“We are seeing amazing things happening across Louisville, and Publix choosing our city for its first Kentucky location is a big win for this community and our workforce,” said Mayor Greenberg. “From fresh produce to the famous Publix subs and the creation of good jobs, this location and stores to follow will have a positive impact. I am grateful to the leaders of Publix for choosing Louisville, and I look forward to building on a promising partnership.”

“It’s an exciting day for Publix Super Markets as we open our first new store in our now eighth state of operation,” said Jared Glover, media relations manager for Publix Super Markets. “We’re excited for customers to experience the Publix difference, with premier customer service and a deep commitment to the communities we serve.”

Located at 2500 Terra Crossing Boulevard in east Louisville, the more than 55,000-square-foot store is the first in Kentucky and one of several planned locations coming to the city. The location features a drive-thru pharmacy and the first Publix Liquors located outside of Florida. Future stores will be located on Flat Rock and Shelbyville roads, and Ballardsville and Brownsboro roads.

Since breaking ground on the Terra Crossing location in June 2022, Publix has become an active community partner volunteering at Dare to Care food bank and making biweekly produce donations to the organization.

Publix began as a single store in 1930, growing into what is now the largest employee-owned company in the United States. The company’s mission is to be the premier quality food retailer in the world. Publix was named one of the 2023 Best Workplaces in Retail by Fortune.

Since the beginning of his administration, Mayor Greenberg has helped celebrate over $1 billion in announced investments and the creation of 2,302 jobs. These new employment opportunities have an average wage of nearly $60,000.
