Publix to Build Technology Campus for IT Workers

Publix to Build Technology Campus for IT Workers


LAKELAND, FL
Friday, August 18th, 2023

Publix Super Markets is employing more expansion strategies, this time with a focus on technology. Recently purchasing a fourth building in Lakeland, Florida, the retail chain is establishing a new technology campus for its information technology workers

The strategic expansion could bolster the company’s online presence and technological developments. Publix currently has its IT staff working out of three buildings in downtown Lakeland, according to Lkldnow. In January, the retailer purchased a block-long limestone structure that once housed FedEx for $8.6 million. Currently, Publix employs approximately 1,200 IT workers in the downtown region.

With the purchase of its fourth building in downtown Lakeland, Florida, Publix plans to build a tech campus for its IT workers

The grocer also owns an old Florida Citrus Mutual building that has sat vacant since 2016 when it was purchased for $3.1 million. On August 21, the Lakeland City Commission will vote on whether or not to tear it down to create more parking for Publix employees.

With this project, Publix could bring a multitude of high-paying jobs to downtown Lakeland.

Deli Market News will continue to report as this grocer’s footprint evolves, so keep clicking for the latest updates.
