Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Columbia is launching its “Community Tuesdays” initiative in April, a five-part series that will donate 10 percent of the restaurant’s daily sales to local organizations on April 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, respectively.
Through their appetites, Puckett’s guests will support Columbia Central High School’s Project Graduation on Tuesday, April 2; aMuse’um on Tuesday, April 9; Maury County CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) on Tuesday, April 16; and Hope House on Tuesday, April 23. Puckett’s is waiting on confirmation for the fifth non-profit organization to support on April 30.
This is the first philanthropic effort from Puckett’s in Columbia, which opened last week. Owner Andy Marshall said that the five Tuesdays coincide with the restaurant’s mission to focus on community.
“We’re supporting these five organizations because we connect with their individual visions, and we believe our customers do too. It’s also a wonderful opportunity for both the Puckett’s family and our guests to become more familiar with what each does for the community,” he said. “From the moment we announced our plans to open in Columbia, we’ve felt a humbling amount of local support. It’s just a small indicator of the kind of heart Maury County has. We hope to show our appreciation through these kinds of events.”
Puckett’s kicked off its Columbia operations with a neon sign-lighting ceremony on March 23, and a grand opening event on March 27 that included live music and a ribbon cutting with the Maury County Chamber of Commerce. This restaurant marks the third family-owned location in three different counties for the Marshall family.
The restaurant is open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays and Mondays. For more information, go to www.puckettsgrocery.com or call 931-490-4550.
About Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant
With locations in downtown Franklin, downtown Nashville and downtown Columbia, the Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality.
When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember.
