It was a hot and spicy day at McMahon Truck Centers of Nashville yesterday as employees took part in the 1st ever McMahon Truck Centers of Nashville Chili Cook-Off!

MTC Nashville associates brought in homemade chili in crock pots, and let it simmer through the morning hours. At high-noon, the chili was then judged in a blind taste test by a 3 person panel made up of fellow associates.

As soon as judging was complete – all of the employees, and even a few customers on site took part in a lunchtime chili feast!

And The Winners…

After a lot of sweat and debate over some great entries in the blind taste testing – the judges panel selected Jacen Gardner as the overall winner for best chili – and Preston Black for the hottest. For their winning efforts, Jason received a $30 cash prize and a limited edition Mack Anthem truck model. Preston took home the $20 prize for hottest overall chili.

A huge thank you to McMahon Truck Leasing Account Manager Angela Pomnitz , who organized the entire event! Great Job Angela – we may have to try this at our other locations next!
