The store will be approximately 28,000 square feet and offer students and faculty indoor and outdoor seating areas, bike racks, and sidewalk connectivity to the adjacent residence halls. 

“We’re excited to bring a Publix to the campus at USF where students can live, work, play and eat,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations. “Conveniently located to USF residence halls, the short walk or bike ride will offer plenty of fresh grab-and-go options, including our world-famous Publix subs, deli teas, decadent desserts and sushi.” 

Publix has not determined an opening date for the new store yet. 

Publix currently has 1,167 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
