Somebody's never been to a Publix.

Publix is really nice compared to like Kroger or Food Lion or something, but when you win the Heisman, your ladies should be willing and your crab legs should be Whole Foods or better.

I live in a decent sized metropolis and have to drive probably 30 minutes to get to a Whole Foods. They ain't everywhere
I make $31,000 dollars a year and I have a home.

That's odd, I didn't know that. But still, I'm sure there are gourmet groceries around everywhere, for people who win the Heisman.

I don't mean to hate on Publix, it's the best of its kind. I always liked their subs for some reason.

Fun fact: Publix is branching out and opening some stand alone sub shops.

If this is true, its probably going to fail.

Yes, their subs are epic (I'm in the 'Publix Zone' a lot to visit family) but thinking they'd work in a standalone shop is delusional hubris.
The idea of "Publix Subs" does not work disassociated from Publix Grocery.

The exception is if its like "(Store) Liquors" where they just satellite the sub operation to its own little niche next to the store in the same strip mall. That would probably thrive. The line to get subs at the sub/deli counter is usually outrageous, a dedicated operation would help out there. .

Weird, how it will fail as a standalone entity but not as an 'expansion entity' alongside the store itself.
Being prescient isn't always easy.

Why will it fail as a stand alone? Agree that the best case scenario is them using the liquor model. Good call on that one

I'm a little surprised that the quality of those subs is even a known thing, let alone that it generates enough interest to launch standalone sub shops. Good for them.

I just don't see the Publix brand comfortably translating into a stand-alone restaurant business no more than McDonalds couldn't open a rib joint.
Consumers are deeply regimented, habit-driven creatures who resent change. Once you've got them buying your product, you can't disrupt their routine. They're like monkeys who've been trained to navigate a maze to get a grape whenever a bell rings.

They could probably pull off a satellite space, just because it maintains the association between Publix the grocery store and the sandwiches- which is the Pavlovian cue that probably drives half the people who buy them (Go to store, shop, oh, pick up one of those delicious subs!).

Wildcard, though; if they expand the sub operations into areas that don't have a Publix. That may or may not succeed.

A while back, Publix Subs were featured in one of those "TOP 10 TOTALLY AWESOME AMAZING THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT PUBLIX THAT YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T EVEN KNOW EXISTED" internetty things.

I wish we had them in Chicago. I shop at Trader Joes and Aldi, the latter of which has bums sleeping in the aisles.
Publix is like the Switzerland of supermarket chains. Clean, efficient, overpriced and full of people with stable incomes.

Yeah, but you won't find a better price on severely bruised produce and big bags of knockoff cereal infested with mealworms.

Ya'll are smokin' sherm. Aldi is the bomb for certain things. And my god, their checkers check faster than anyone in the game.

Like if you're a winning baller, you don't go in there. But for a family man like Brvy, it's a great place to get a giant discount on staples.

You should see Aldi on "day before the EBT card balances expire" day.
It's like a Congolese version of Supermarket Sweep.

90% of my diet consists of pizza rolls and imitation crabmeat so Aldi is the stone cold nuts to get in and out on the cheap but the place is a legit ****ing dump.

Aldi is a dump, no doubt. We get can goods and other things every couple months, but it's hard to feel comfortable in there.

care to rethink this after his poor play this season? stats are very average now that the talent has dropped around him. he's also clearly mentally disabled and i have to think that will hold him back in the nfl.
