A few weeks ago it was Employee Appreciation Week in Downtown Nashville, put on by the Nashville Downtown Partnership. It's a week full of activities intended to celebrate the people that make our downtown district tick. In honor of this week, we featured a few of our amazing employees at our downtown Nashville location over on the Puckett's Blog. I just loved reading these, so I had to share them.
Brianna Dills has been at Puckett’s for just six months, but Billy Hearn, Kitchen Manager at 5th & Church, already refers to her as a “rockstar line cook.”
“Brianna started out as dishwasher here at Puckett’s, but very quickly we saw that she was eager to learn and do more,” Hearn said. “Brianna learned a few stations on the line and excelled at all of them. She now can run any station and is always a positive motivating presence. She is one of those employees that you appreciate and makes everyone’s day a little better just for having worked with her.” read more about Brianna!
Deb, along with her husband and their two daughters, relocated to Nashville from Colorado because they were inspired by the agriculture.
“We moved to Nashville to find our way to buying a piece of land to build a farm on and retire with something to leave the kids and to help the environment,” Deb said.
Deb said she loves how fast-paced Puckett’s is and that there is never a dull moment in downtown Nashville. read more about Deb!
As General Manager, Autumn Friese keeps Puckett’s 5th & Church running smoothly, even in the midst of all the hustle and bustle that comes with being located downtown. In fact, she’s the best manager around. It’s true–she’s got the award to prove it!
In June 2016, Autumn was named “Restaurant Manager of the Year” at the Greater Nashville Hospitality Association Stars of the Industry Awards.
No stranger to the restaurant business, Autumn spent her summers working in her mother’s restaurant in Northern Michigan, learning the ins-and-outs of the business.
