Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant, the family-owned eatery located in downtown Chattanooga, has announced a partnership with Finley Stadium to serve concessions at Chattanooga Mocs football games.


Known for its slow-smoked, fall-off-the-bone barbecue and other Southern classics, Puckett’s will begin offering a limited menu at the first home football game against UT Martin on Saturday, Sept.

16. In addition to the five home football games, Puckett’s concessions will also be available at the Chattanooga Football Club games next spring.


“We are very excited to have Puckett’s going into concessions for Mocs football games this year,” said Travis Patrick, director of business development for Mocs Sports Properties. “As we continually work to improve the football game day atmosphere, we look for new partners to help us add value to our fans. With Puckett’s bringing in that value and providing another quality food option, we can expect to see more fans lining up for Mocs Football Saturdays.”


Puckett’s concessions offerings will include restaurant favorites like its Piggy Mac, chicken tenders and fries, hot chicken sandwich, brisket nachos, smoked wings, Redneck Burrito and more.


Andy Marshall, CEO of Puckett’s parent company, A. Marshall Family Foods, said he and his family are longtime fans of the Mocs and look forward to supporting the team in a new way this year.


“Our son, Cliff, attended UTC, so the Marshall family has supported Mocs Football for years now,”Mr. Marshall said. “We’re honored to have this opportunity to form a relationship with Finley Stadium and UTC Football and hope that Mocs fans find that game days are enhanced by our presence in the stadium.”


Puckett’s concessions will be located in the East Corner of the South Concourse at Finley.


Finley Stadium is the official home stadium for UTC Football, UTC Soccer, and Chattanooga FC. This will be the 20th football season to be played in the stadium.
