We are excited to welcome Chris Payne to the A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. family as the general manager of Scout’s Pub!

Chris recently relocated from Atlanta where he opened over 70 restaurants, ranging from steakhouses and fast-casual concepts to bars. Since joining the Scout’s Pub team, Payne has spent time in each of the A. Marshall restaurants, including Puckett’s Gro., Puckett’s Boat House and Homestead Manor, and has quickly learned that our culture runs deep.

Also joining the Scout’s team is our long-time brand chef, Keith West, who will serve as head chef at the new restaurant, and Brad Lentz and Lee Rice, who will make the shift to Westhaven from Franklin’s Puckett’s Gro. We’re thrilled to have them on board, too!

Scout’s Pub is scheduled to open its doors this summer in Westhaven, and is looking for more talented people like Chris, Brad and Lee to join the team! If you or someone you know is interested, please stop by Scout’s Pub on May 24, 25, and 26 from 10 AM – 2 PM and 4 PM – 7 PM to meet Chris. Bring your resume and a photo I.D.! You can also apply online at www.scoutspub.com.

PUCKETT’S BOAT HOUSE “UNCORKED” SERIES RETURNS MAY 17

IMG_2311

Puckett’s Boat House will once again partner with Moon Wine & Spirits to shine a light on its premier wine bar on Tuesday, May 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. by bringing back “Uncorked”– an educational, monthly tasting series that will focus on informative topics, food pairings and all things wine-related.

The first event, “Understanding the Wine Lifestyle: Wine 101,” will serve as an introductory course that highlights the basics, led by Brad Lentz, certified sommelier and manager of Puckett’s Grocery in Franklin.

We chatted with Brad and Eddie, the owner of Moon Wine & Spirits, to get their takes on wine and the “Uncorked” series. Here’s what they said:

What inspired this event series?

Brad: “Uncorked” was brought about as a means of community outreach; to bring people together for a fun, educational and entertaining purpose. It’s also a great opportunity to expose people to the wine bar and to highlight the amazing assortment of wines that Moon Wine & Spirits offers.

Eddie: We’re very excited about this year and to be able to continue the partnership with Puckett’s Boat House! The topics are going to be fun, and the wines and foods will be great.

What ideas do you have for subsequent class themes?

Brad: After we cover Wine 101, we think the natural progression for June is to highlight summer celebrations — barbecues, Father’s Day, pool parties– and hone in on the wines that are going to go best with the foods people will likely be serving. We’re still talking through themes for the rest of the classes.

Eddie: A big initiative is to make sure most, if not all of the wines featured are on Puckett’s Boat House menu and in the wine store as well. We want people to fall in love with these wines that we feature and be able to easily buy them in our store or order them next time they’re at the Boat House.

What drew each of you to explore wine?

Brad: I became intrigued by it in the late 90s and discovered that I had a good palate, and was encouraged by a friend who had been doing this for a living that I ought to think about doing more with it, so I became a certified sommelier. There is just something about the experience of sharing wine, whether it be at a nice dinner or sitting out on the patio with friends; there is a wine for every occasion and I love that about it.

Eddie: Of course I’m in the wine and liquor business, but wine is so complex.  There are only a few steps to making whiskey, but there are so many steps to making wine and it can be affected by so many different elements– It’s truly fascinating.

Brad: It’s the winemaker’s expression of love in a bottle.

Tell us what you recommend for a casual glass of wine while you’re hanging around the house.

Eddie: Dry rosés have become the highest ticket item recently.

Brad: I agree. A good, dry rosé would be my choice. It’s perfect for hot summer weather drinking.

So, there you have it, folks! — Expert opinions and musings about all things wine! “Uncorked” tickets for May 17 can be purchased through the link below and seats are limited, so hurry and buy yours! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/uncorked-series-understanding-the-wine-lifestyle-wine-101-tickets-24881534339

Open Mic Night April 18th @ Puckett’s Chattanooga

Puckett's Chattanooga - Music on Stage

Come out and show us what you’ve got, Chattanooga! We’re hosting an open mic night on April 18th!

What: Puckett’s Chattanooga Open Mic Night (a night for local singer/songwriters/groups to come out and show off your talents)

When: Monday, April 18th at 6PM (local, Eastern time, y’all)

Where: Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant stage | 2 West Aquarium Way, Suite 110, Chattanooga, TN 37402

Additional Details: We will begin sign-ups that evening at 5:30PM. Each artist will be allowed to perform one song–and of course we love originals at Puckett’s, so singer/songwriters are urged to come out! We will have 15 slots available. No more than three folks on stage at one time, so if you’re representing a band it will need to be stripped down. All artists will need to bring their own instruments, and 1/4″ cable(s) if applicable. No drum kits, no amps and no backing tracks. We have a full in-house system and one of our sound techs will be there to assist in mixing and making sure you sound great!

Please note, if you are planning on dining with us this evening be sure to contact the restaurant directly to book a reservation. This is not required, but suggested. You can call us at (423)708-8505 or BOOK ONLINE .

KROGER ADDS PUCKETT’S LINE OF SAUCES, SPICES & RUBS TO MIDDLE TN SHELVES

e-pucketts-family-of-merchandise

You heard it here first, y’all! Krogers throughout Middle Tennessee are making two of our popular Franklin-based restaurants more accessible to local shoppers: this month, the retail grocery chain began stocking its shelves with Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant and Puckett’s Boat House lines of sauces, spices and rubs that will allow fans to recreate the taste in their own home-cooked meals.

Eight of our products will be featured in the “Pick Tennessee” section across 40 stores, ranging between $3.99 and $4.99 and include our Puckett’s original and spicy BBQ sauces, a brisket marinade, a rib rub, a burger shake, a pork bbq rub and an all-purpose seasoning.

We have a hunch that Puckett’s original and spicy tomato-based BBQ sauces will reign as the shelves’ most sought-after products. The original is the Marshall family’s Memphis-style version, which harkens back to Andy’s roots with a savory sauce that’s sweet with no heat, and as versatile as it gets. Its spicy sauce suggests more of a Texan influence, with bold flavor that holds just the right amount of pepper, and sweet and tangy at the same time.

Each of the Southern-bent seasoning offerings — which includes four different shakes and rubs — carry a little bit of heat, with a healthy balance of smoke to complement pulled pork, ribs, chicken, burgers and more. In addition to the specially blended spices, our Brisket Marinade and Puckett’s Boat House Pepper Sauce round out any shopper’s BBQ needs, and include chef directions on the label (i.e. “marinate meat overnight in your refrigerator for 8-12 hours to achieve that perfect Puckett’s taste”).

Do us a favor and take a selfie when you see it on the shelves and tag @puckettsgrocery and @puckettsboath — we want to see how good they look on the shelves!
