Award-Winning Restaurant Unveils One-of-a-Kind Food Truck
NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Local foodies can now obsess over a new type of food truck – Franklin's first-ever, authentic food trolley will serve family recipes from Puckett's Gro. & Restaurant. The award-winning restaurant will unveil its newly renovated trolley March 17th, in conjunction with the annual street festival Franklin Main Street Brew Fest. Andy Marshall, Puckett's owner, announced he and his staff will give away food and prizes to those in attendance.
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.
"We are so excited at Puckett's to offer a new and distinctive way to bring what we do to local communities around the Middle Tennessee area," said Marshall. "We love the idea of the food truck as a venue to extend our brand into catered events, festivals, and special occasions. We wanted something unique...something historic, but with a Puckett's twist. What better vehicle than a trolley!?"
Created by owner Andy Marshall, along with the help of managers Max Stephenson and J.T. Ward, the trolley will offer a wide range of delicious made-to-order menu items from breakfast to lunch and dinner. It will cater to Middle Tennessee's most popular festivals and events, and will also be available to rent for special occasions. Regular menu items will include Puckett's famous cherry wood smoked pork and chicken, burgers, fried catfish, sweet potato fries, baked beans, coleslaw, and assorted cobblers as well as other signature menu items such as the redneck burrito, brisket chimichanga and catfish tacos. The menu will be customizable for special events.
Marshall found the historic trolley in late 2011 and recently had it converted to a food service truck. 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.
