Merry, Merry Memories from your Puckett’s Family!

Family is everything to us here at A. Marshall Family Foods, especially during the holidays. A few of us recently got to talking about our favorite memories we’ve shared with our families and what makes this season so special for us, and some of the stories were too good not to share!

Today we’re giving you a glimpse into the holiday memories of our Marketing Director, Rachel, and two of our all-star servers in Chattanooga, Mariah and Gracie. If these stories don’t warm your heart, we don’t know what will (besides our Piggy Mac, that is!) Check back with us later this week for more!
