The article reports on the plan of Publix Super Markets Inc. to test the Carrabba's Italian Grill takeout restaurant in its store in Florida. Publix Super Markets will test an in-store takeout restaurant in one of its stores. Publix's Sarasota store will offer a condensed version of Carrabba's made-to-order menu, which includes soups, salads, and entrees. If it proves successful, Publix could expand its relationship with Carrabba's parent company Outback Steakhouse Inc.
