A self-proclaimed ‘product of the Boys & Girls Club,’ Andy Marshall, proprietor and CEO of A. Marshall Foods, credits the organization for providing strong reinforcements and role models during his youth and often supports the Club’s local branches through charitable campaigns at the company’s restaurants. The Feb. 13 grand opening celebration of Puckett’s Gro. in Murfreesboro included a performance by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutherford County cheerleading squad and an introduction of the Clubs’ 2017 Youth of the Year. Marshall Family Foods — which opened its fifth Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant on the downtown Murfreesboro square last month — recently presented a check for $826 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rutherford County, following its pledge to donate 10% of sales from Puckett’s grand opening night to the organization.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of America seeks to provide youth with positive mentors and educational and developmental opportunities in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The Rutherford County branch serves more than 2,800 young people daily, relying on private, corporate, individual, and United Way funding to fill the gap between membership dues and operational expenses.

ABOUT PUCKETT’S GRO.
With locations in downtown Franklin, downtown Nashville, downtown Columbia, downtown Chattanooga and downtown Murfreesboro, 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.
