Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Chattanooga introduces Pancakes at Puckett’s to Chattanooga-area honor roll students. Pancakes at Puckett’s is a new program just for kids that rewards their academic achievement.

Parents are encouraged to bring their child’s A's and B's report card (or snap a picture of it!) to Puckett’s for a free kid’s pancake breakfast to celebrate their hard work and success.


“We know that making all A’s and B’s is no easy task and we want to let students know how much we appreciate and admire their hard work and dedication to their studies,” said Max Stephenson, Puckett’s Chattanooga general manager. “Breakfast is still the most important meal of the day, even during the summer, so keep those brains in tip-top shape, stop in and have a pancake breakfast on us then enjoy some off time having fun in downtown Chattanooga.”


Pancakes at Puckett’s runs through the summer, May 26-Aug. 9. Limit one per student, per summer, ages 12 and under. Purchase required.
