Mission Possible: We Beat Our Mission H2O Goal!

IMG_8885 (1)

For the third consecutive year, our 5th & Church location in downtown Nashville ran the “Mission H2O” campaign benefitting Nashville Rescue Mission throughout the month of August.

We set our most ambitious goal yet, aiming to donate 25,000 water bottles to the Mission during one of the hottest months of the year (which was 10,000 more than our goal last year, might we add)…and our final total was 27,360 bottles!

Thanks to generous donations made by diners and corporate sponsors, we were able to help Nashville’s homeless population in a truly meaningful way.

The A. Marshall Family Foods Director of Marketing, Rachel Layton, is thankful for the way our community rallies around the campaign each year.

“Mission H2O is truly a moving and rewarding experience, and it’s a chain of selfless acts that makes reaching our goal possible. The generosity of Nashvillians, Puckett’s fans, and our sponsors and partners never ceases to amaze me.” Layton says. “Being able to provide our fellow humans with a basic human need is all that matters.”

We were able to exceed our donation goal thanks in part to the donations made by our incredible community partners, including Propak, Mobile Fixtures, Twine Graphics & Screen Printing, A Moment’s Peace Spa, BigRMedia, Boyle Investment Company, Pierce Public Relations, Tennessee Hospitality & Tourism Association, SunTrust Bank, Wingate Media Group, Young Leaders Council, Vision Hospitality Group, Planet H2O, and Ajax Turner.

Kimbro Water Company supplied the bottles at a reduced cost, and we couldn’t make this dream happen each year without their help.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Nashville!

 

Made in Tennessee: Puckett’s + The Soundtrack of America

Commissioner Kevin Triplett and Andy Marshall

It was such a treat to host the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development at 5th & Church yesterday as they made a special announcement!

TDTD Commissioner Kevin Triplett took our stage to launch the department’s “The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee” merchandise, which includes t-shirts, tank tops, coffee mugs, hats, water bottles & even onesies for your little ones. We’re proud to say that Puckett’s 5th & Church is the first location in the state to have these awesome items for sale!

The mission of the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development is to inspire visitors to travel to the state and create lifelong memories and authentic experiences that can only be “Made in Tennessee,” which is something that Puckett’s supports 100%.

“The Soundtrack of America is, of course, music, but it is so much more,” says Commissioner Triplett. “It is collection of sounds that stir memories that make time in Tennessee enjoyable. Whether it’s the scenic beauty of the great outdoors, a stop through a quaint town or trip to a big city, communities pride themselves on Southern hospitality, welcoming travelers to Tennessee from around the world. These unparalleled experiences create a vacation that is “The Soundtrack of America. Made in Tennessee.”

Here at Puckett’s, we love talking to our guests from all over the country, around the world and from right here in our great state.

“Puckett’s is proud to partner with the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development on this launch.” says Andy Marshall. “Commissioner Triplett and his entire team do great work across our state, which is invaluable considering the major economic role that tourism plays in Tennessee’s economy.”

Come on in and check out the merch! It’s Jonny and June approved, y’all!

We’re Headin’ To Finley Stadium :: Go Mocs!

Drumroll, please…We’re tickled to announce that our Chattanooga location will be serving concessions at Finley Stadium for Chattanooga Mocs home football games at Finley Stadium! The first home game is slated for this Saturday, Sept. 16, versus UT Martin, and we can’t wait to serve the best football fans around.

In addition to the five home football games, Puckett’s concessions will also be served at the Chattanooga Football Club games next spring!

“We are very excited to have Puckett’s going into concessions for Mocs football games this year,” says Travis Patrick, director of business development for Mocs Sports Properties. “As we continually work to improve the football game day atmosphere, we look for new partners to help us add value to our fans. With Puckett’s bringing in that value and providing another quality food option, we can expect to see more fans lining up for Mocs Football Saturdays.”

We’ll be serving up some of your favorites, like our signature Piggy Mac, Redneck Burrito, chicken tenders and fries, hot chicken sandwich, brisket nachos, smoked wings and more!

“Our son, Cliff, attended UTC, so the Marshall family has supported Mocs Football for years now,” says Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall family Foods. “We’re honored to have this opportunity to form a relationship with Finley Stadium and UTC Football and hope that Mocs fans find that game days are enhanced by our presence in the stadium.”

We’ll be located in the East Corner of the South Concourse at Finley, so be sure to come see us!

Finley Stadium is the official home stadium for UTC Football, UTC Soccer, and Chattanooga FC. More information about Finley Stadium can be found at finleystadium.com.

WHAT WE’RE LOVIN’ :: OYSTERS AFTER LABOR DAY!

Labor day is one our favorite holidays, ’cause it marks the (okay, unofficial) start of oyster season! 

PBH- Food- New Orleans Oysters- 77-web (1)

Here at A. Marshall Family Foods, we love oysters all year ‘round, but it’s no secret that they’re most popular during the fall. If it’s been awhile since you’ve indulged, here’s a little pearl of wisdom: at Puckett’s Boat House, we source our oysters fresh daily from the Gulf Coast (which happens to also be one of our favorite places!) Our guests have eaten over half a million oysters at the Boat House, and one of ’em even contained 50 pearls! There is no better place in Franklin to get a taste of this seafood treat.

When we’re feeling traditional, we like to serve ‘em up raw on the half shell with a lemon and cocktail sauce. When we’re feeling spunky, we recommend trying ’em grilled and topped with asiago, bacon, and jalapeño; creamy spinach dip; or cajun herb and garlic butter. Can’t decide? Heck, order ’em all!

Oysters go great with bubbles, try them with a sparkling white wine to really complete the experience. We’ll see you soon, and if you find a pearl, don’t forget to tag us @puckettsboath to let us know!

And the winning burger is…

Your votes have been tallied and we’re excited to announce the winner of the Battle of the Burgers is… drum roll please… Three Little Pigs!
