Publix has 3rd best reputation among U.S. corporations, new poll finds

Publix took the No. 3 spot in a new poll ranking the corporate reputation of the country’s 100 “most visible” companies.

The Lakeland-based supermarket chain’s reputation quotient rating fell just below Amazon and the Wegmans grocery chain in The Harris Poll’s annual survey.

But Publix beat out other top U.S. companies, including Apple, The Walt Disney Company and Google.

Publix took the 6th spot in the poll last year, and ranked 8th on the list in 2015.
