Publix Super Markets, Inc. has selected architecture firm LEO A DALY and its subsidiary engineering firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) to design a new refrigerated and frozen-foods distribution campus in McLeansville, North Carolina. Construction is expected to be completed in 2021.

Publix, the largest employee-owned supermarket chain in the United States, operates nine distribution centers in the southeast, supplying more than 1,200 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia. This tenth distribution center would be the northern-most, allowing the Lakeland, Florida, company to support growing demand in Southeast. In 2014, Publix expanded into North Carolina, where it now has 38 stores.
