Andy Marshall, owner of Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant announced he will be unveiling the city’s first ever Food Trolley on Saturday, March 17 at the Franklin Main Street Brew Fest in Historic Downtown Franklin. He and his staff will be serving up family recipes from the award-winning restaurant out of the newly renovated trolley and will be giving away food and prizes to those in attendance. The ‘Name the Puckett’s Trolley’ contest is on the official Puckett’s Trolley Facebook page.
The trolley will be located at the corner of 4th Ave. South and Main Street in Franklin during the
Brew Fest. Beginning at 6pm, it will be open to the public and attendees will receive Puckett’s Beer Coozies as well as Apple Pie Moonshine Cobbler Shooters with every purchase. Puckett’s will be serving up some of the restaurant’s favorite dishes including the Redneck Burrito, Brisket Chimichanga, and BBQ platters and sandwiches. Sides offered will include regular and Sweet Potato Fries and Coleslaw and dessert options will include Apple Pie Moonshine Cobbler and Deep-Fried Oreos.
“Launching the Puckett’s Trolley at the Main Street Brew Fest adds another fun element, and more great food, to an already festive event,” said Nancy Williams, executive director of the Downtown Franklin Association. “In just six years, Puckett’s has become a tradition in Historic
Downtown Franklin, and now we’ll have their trolley on the street.” Those interested in getting in on the fun before the official unveiling can do so during Puckett’s official ‘Name the Puckett’s Trolley’ contest. Beginning today participants can submit name ideas on the Puckett’s Trolley Facebook page at www.facebook.com/puckettstrolley.
The winner will receive a Trolley Party, which will provide catering for 25 people, or a $250 Puckett’s Gift Certificate (See Trolley Facebook page for details). The winner will be announced at the Brew Fest. Marshall found the historic trolley in late 2011 and recently had it converted to a food service truck. The exterior will be painted once the contest has concluded and a name has been confirmed. Details on its location, as well as more information on featured specials, can be found on Twitter, @PuckettsTrolley and on Facebook, www.facebook.com/puckettstrolley.
