Publix Unveils New Deli-Centric Prototype for 2019

Publix Unveils New Deli-Centric Prototype for 2019

Friday, December 28th, 2018

Publix is making 2019 a meat-forward year, teasing a new store prototype for the new year that’s combining a deli-centric model with a traditional grocery format. The latest of many store models Publix has brought to market of late, the newest prototype will continue the trend of upping the ante when it comes to convenience.

According to a report by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, the new prototype will sit at less than 30,000 square feet and will emphasize convenience, particularly prepared food items. The prototype also will debut deli counters that give off restaurant vibes despite sitting on the sales floor of grocery stores.

Publix's new deli format will be convenience-focused

Publix has slated two deli-centric locations to open up shop in the Tampa Bay region in the third quarter of 2019.

How will Publix’s new store prototype change the deli game and encourage other retailers to re-examine their own store formats? Deli Market News will continue to keep you updated on the latest in deli, dairy, bakery, and specialty food.
