Publix is the world’s largest employee-owned company, operating 1,215 supermarkets in seven Southeast states. And although the Lakeland, Fla.-based supermarket chain’s stock isn’t publicly traded, it’s available for purchase to the company’s 200,000 employees—approximately half of whom are millennials. Workers who bought in saw earnings per share soar to $1.37 in the first quarter of 2019 from 93 cents 12 months prior. In that time, Publix’s profit jumped 44% from $680.3 million in the year-earlier quarter to $981 million.
