A new, high-profle Publix market has come to Tennessee.

Let us explore.

Publix, 2023

According to a November 18th report from TimesFreePress.com, the state's newest Publix store continues the company's ambitious expansion.

As excerpted from the report: When Bassam Issa bought more than 53 acres at the southwest corner of East Brainerd and Ooltewah Ringgold roads in 2014, the Chattanooga developer said he knew the site would be ideal for a supermarket like Publix. It took Issa years of pitching the property to Publix to convince the grocery chain to locate on the site, which is less than 3 miles from another Publix store at Hurricane Creek in East Brained and right across the street from a Food City superstore.

As of last Saturday, the 48,000-square-foot grocery store now anchors The Enclave shopping center. The address is 1688 Ooltewah Ringgold Rd #100, Ooltewah, TN 37363.

The report goes on to state: The new Publix is the ninth Publix grocery outlet in the Chattanooga market and comes nearly 14 years after Publix entered the market with its first supermarket in Ooltewah at Snow Hill and Mountain View roads.

For perspective, per ScrapeHero.com’s most recently-updated location count of the Publix grocery store chain: There are 1,394 Publix stores in the United States as of November 06, 2023. The state with the most number of Publix locations in the US is Florida, with 878 stores, which is about 63% of all Publix stores in the US.
