Puckett’s Trolley to Sell Concessions at Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium
A. Marshall Family Foods’ mobile eatery — has partnered with MT Athletics to offer its popular Southern fare to Middle Tennessee State University football fans inside Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium this upcoming season.
“We are always seeking to add new elements to the fan experience at Blue Raiders athletic events,” said Zach Huston, business development manager for Blue Raider Sports Properties. “We’re delighted to feature a local, well-known brand like Puckett’s and are confident that the trolley’s presence will be a crowd-pleaser.”
The Puckett’s Trolley concessions menu will include offerings like a “meat and two” plate — with Puckett’s famous slow-smoked pulled pork or beef brisket as meat options — plus brisket nachos, smoked wings and Piggy Mac — a favored Puckett’s creation — among other bites. Affectionately named Ms. Trolley Parton, the red trolley will be stationed inside gates 3 and 4 at Floyd Stadium for all home games during the 2017 football season.
“Great food and football go hand in hand, and as MTSU alums we are passionate about enhancing the game day experience for our fellow Blue Raiders with the addition of Puckett’s Trolley,” said Claire Crowell, COO of A. Marshall Family Foods Inc.
A. Marshall Family Foods, a middle Tennessee-based restaurant and hospitality company, opened its fifth location of Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant on the downtown Murfreesboro square earlier this year. The restaurant recently partnered with MT Athletics to host a “Tailgate Takeover” for a lucky winner and friends at the first home game of the season. The MTSU Blue Raiders will play Vanderbilt in the season opener on September 2 at 7pm.
Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium is the official home stadium for MTSU Football. More information about MTSU and Floyd Stadium can be found at goblueraiders.com.
