Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant officials announced today the opening this fall of a Columbia location.
The new restaurant — to operate in the space previously home to the Porter-Walker Company at 15 Public Square in Columbia’s historic downtown — will be similar to the Franklin and Nashville locations, as it will offer Puckett’s traditional Southern fare and be open seven days a week, from 6 a.m. daily and closing as late as 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturday.
In a release, company officials said renovations to the building’s space, which contains about 26,400 square feet, are expected to start in the next few weeks. Puckett’s owner Andy Marshall did not disclose a price tag for the effort.
“I believe this will be a turning point for the downtown community,” Harvey Church, chairman for the Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance and chair elect for Columbia Main Street, said in a release. “Puckett’s is not just another restaurant coming to Maury County, but I believe will be a catalyst in moving our community to another level. Puckett’s on the square will not only help existing businesses and restaurants in downtown, but will draw new clientele to the area.”
Bostelman Enterprises, Inc., led by Steve Bostelman, is an investor in the Puckett’s Columbia project.
