The history of Winn Dixie
Winn Dixie was founded by William Milton Davis and his sons, Artemus, James, Milton, and Tyne. Their first store was in Burley, Idaho. When William moved to Florida, he bought the Rockmoor Grocery store and over the years bought over and acquired more grocery stores in the area. Today, there are more than 500 Winn Dixie supermarkets.
Winn Dixie shows up more than you might expect in pop culture
The sure sign of success for a supermarket is when it starts getting referenced in all sorts of pop culture. That's just what has happened to Winn Dixie over the years!
One of the places a lot of people have seen their logo and name is at NASCAR events. The supermarket sponsors both race cars and events related to racing, including Mark Martin's Roush Fenway Racing#60 in the 1990s and the Xfinity Series which was held in 2015.
They also got a mention in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, as there are a few scenes that take place right outside the supermarket.
But the biggest reference it gets it an entire book and movie with its name in the title: Because of Winn Dixie. The story is about a dog that gets found in - you guessed it - one of the supermarket's locations.
