Publix Super Markets

Charlotte 1453 Family Night
Michael Fredette

    The largest employee-owned company in the country, this grocery chain with a “family” feel gives staff a “great opportunity to retire worry-free” through a stock ownership plan (part-timers participate too). Hefty holiday bonuses don’t hurt either. The result: Employees stick around. The company has dozens of workers over the age of 90.
