Puckett’s in downtown Nashville is hiring for all positions, and we can’t think of a better way to showcase the Puckett’s spirit than by sharing first-hand experiences from members of our team! If you want to be part of our Puckett’s family just like Victor and Jami, please come by our job fair at the restaurant, located at 500 Church St., on Wednesday, August 10 between 8 – 10 AM or 2 – 6 PM. Bring a valid photo ID; we will have applications on-site. We are looking forward to meeting you!

Puckett’s Offers Opportunities for all Employees

Kitchen Manager, Victor Delgado, is a testament to the opportunity Puckett’s offers for their employees to grow. Victor’s journey at Puckett’s began six years ago when he was hired as a cook. He eventually worked his way up to kitchen manager, where his favorite part of the job is working together with everyone in the “Puckett’s family.”

“It feels like family here,” Victor said. “People who work here are happy, and the customers can tell.”

Victor wants people who are interested in working at Puckett’s to know that the restaurant offers opportunities for everyone, and that the people are good at communicating, listening to what everyone has to say.

He is looking forward to continuing his journey with Puckett’s.

Thanks to the Marshall family I have been working here for years, and I hope for many more to come.”

It’s the Little Things That Makes Puckett’s Stand Out

Working at Puckett’s definitely changed the life of waitress Jami Joe. When she pulled into Nashville from Florida in 2012, she didn’t know anyone and was looking for a job. She saw on Facebook that Puckett’s was hiring, so she applied and interviewed.

When she started training two days later, the first person she met was Craig, her future husband. In addition to her husband, Puckett’s has provided Jami with lifelong friends.

“I can count on these people for anything,” Jami said. “At Puckett’s the people come first, whether it’s a family emergency or your car breaks down- they care about you.”

Although, Puckett’s has grown rapidly over the four years Jami has been there, she believes it just means more opportunities. Jami has many responsibilities within the restaurant, including coordinating large parties and training new employees.

“At the heart of it all, it’s still a family owned business with family values,” Jami Joe said.

Although Jami has worked for larger restaurants, she believes Puckett’s is special because of the camaraderie that exists between everyone. She says it’s these small things, like the family feel, that make Puckett’s stand out from the rest.

“Any issues I’ve ever had with a customer or scheduling, they’ve never batted an eye,” Jami said.

Puckett’s Peach-Glazed Pork Chop Recipe Revealed!

Puckett's- Food-Pork Chop-3

We made just a few changes to the Puckett’s menu this summer, and our new Peach-Glazed Pork Chop has quickly become one our most popular dishes! Of course, we’re always hoping you’ll stop by the restaurant to visit and let us cook for you, but we figured we’d be doing everyone a disservice by keeping the recipe to ourselves!

Chef Billy Hearn, from our downtown Nashville location, went on Channel 5’s Talk of the Town recently and boy, did he make us hungry! You’ll have to watch the segment to get the recipe but we’ll give you a tip — it’s best to brine the pork chops for 12-24 hours so they’ll be nice and juicy, so if you’re planning on serving this to your nearest and dearest, you’ll want to get started early! We add some color to the plate and serve the peach-glazed pork chop with our smashed sweet potatoes and flat ironed green beans. (P.S. – if you try out this recipe at home, you have to promise to post a picture on Instagram and tag @puckettsgrocery so we can admire it!)

Did you catch that beautiful shot of our Music City Hot Chicken Sandwich at the end? Like Chef Billy said, it’s just $5 if you order it from Puckett’s 5th & Church through OrderUp this week (July 25th – July 31st.) We’re not sure there’s a better deal around! And, of course, OrderUp can deliver the rest of our menu to all of you in the Nashville area at any time – just click the link on our website and get to ordering!

With #SceneBurgerWeek being bigger and tastier than ever, there are just a few things to remember.  Due to the amount of meat lovers out there, there may be a little bit longer of a wait and although we have completely stocked our kitchen, there is a possibility we could run out of ingredients. However, we promise to do our best to feed as many of you as quickly as we can! Also, all burgers this week come a la carte but we do have a lot of great side options, such as skillet mac & cheese and sweet potato fries on our menu, so be sure to check them out when you go to order!

PUCKETT’S NASHVILLE WILL LAUNCH SECOND “MISSION H2O” CAMPAIGN ON AUGUST 1ST

 

e-mission-h2o-fullsize

With temperatures often soaring above 90 degrees, it is safe to say that August is the hottest month in Nashville. In weather like that, staying hydrated is crucial, but for many in Nashville’s homeless community, it can be hard to do. That is why we at Puckett’s 5th & Church are thrilled to be teaming up again with the Nashville Rescue Mission for “Mission H2O,” a project that provides water to Nashville’s homeless community.

Last year, we collected over 10,000 water bottles, supplied by Kimbro Water Company, for the Mission. With the help of our customers, we know we can do even better this year, so we’ve decided to raise our goal to 15,000 bottles!

Kimbro sources and packages the water bottles locally in Pall Mall, Tenn. and we are very grateful for their partnership as we launch this campaign for the second year in a row.

“We feel very strongly about Mission H2O, and we want to help Puckett’s impact the community in a big way,” Matthew Neary, sales and marketing manager for Kimbro Water Company, said.

From August 1st to August 31st, Puckett’s diners will have the option of adding an extra dollar or two to their bill. For each dollar, two bottles of water will be donated to the Mission. In addition, our parent company, A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. will match the amount donated by our guests.

The Nashville Rescue Mission is dedicated to helping the hungry and homeless, and offers programs that focus on spiritual growth, education, employment and life-recovery. The Mission aims to give members of the community hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity. Help us, along with the Nashville Rescue Mission, spread love and care this August to those who need it the most in our community!
