Okay, folks, you can’t put it off any longer (we’re telling ourselves the same thing!) It’s officially the eleventh hour for gift buying, but you’re in luck! Our family of restaurants offer a variety gifts that are guaranteed to be a hit with any recipient — we’re talkin’ friends, relatives, teachers, co-workers — you name it, they’ll like it! All of the following can be purchased in the restaurants, and many are available online (but if you prefer to order online, you’d better do it TODAY!)
Without further ado, here are our recommendations for gift giving, A. Marshall Family Foods style.
Puckett’s Gro. | Sauces, Spices, Marinades and Rubs
Give the gift of flavor and stuff the barbecue lover in your life’s stocking with some of the best rubs, sauces and spices in Middle Tennessee! You know Puckett’s for our fall-off-the-bone barbecue, cooked low n’ slow for 18 hours over cherry wood, but did you know we use these very same spices and rubs in our recipes?! We’re just sure that if you spread the love to others, they’ll go crazy for the ‘cue, too!
Buy these online or in any Puckett’s restaurant (we’re in downtown Nashville, downtown Franklin, downtown Columbia and downtown Chattanooga!)
