business news in context, analysis with attitude

Publix Supermarkets yesterday announced that it has set two new locations for its GreenWise Markets concept, which is focused on health, natural and organic products with an emphasis on prepared foods. The two new stores will be in Naples and Coral Springs, Florida, with the former a conversion from an existing Publix unit and the latter a ground-up construction.

The first four of the GreenWise units in Florida will be in Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Vero Beach, and Tampa.

In addition, Publix announced that it will open two new cooking schools – in Alpharetta, Georgia, and Boca Raton, Florida – to add to the three already operating in Tampa, Sarasota and Jacksonville.

And, Publix said, it also plans to test an expansion of its “Publix Apron” program, offering meal assembly sessions in two sites, in Jacksonville and Lithia, Florida.
