About Cracker Barrel, History and Headquarters Information


Cracker Barrel was founded in the year 1969. The company has been active for almost 49 years now. The founder of the company was Dan Evins. The founder of the company had developed the gift store and restaurant concept in order to improve the sale of gasoline. The founder of the company was a representative of Shell Oil. The first restaurant of the company was opened close to the Interstate 40 highway in Tennessee, United States. It had begun in the year 1969, which started serving biscuits, grits, country ham, southern cuisine, turnip green, etcetera. The company was incorporated in the year 1970, and more location was opened during the 1970s. All the early company restaurant locations had featured gas pumps. During the gasoline shortage in the 1970s, the company started to establish restaurants without any gas pumps and therefore began to eventually fade them out as well.

Then in the year 1981, the company had become a limited public company and had raised almost $4.6 million with the help of its IPO or Initial Public Offering. After the IPO, the company started to grow at 20 per cent every year. By the year 1987, the company already had almost 50 restaurants in nearly eight states in the USA, along with an annual sales figure of almost $81 million. By the year 1992, the company had reached a $1 billion market value. By the year 1997, the company already had 314 restaurants under its name. The company had closed down its Corner Market operations in the same year as well and started focusing more on gift store and restaurants locations. The company had opened its first restaurant and gift store in Alabama, in the year 1998. During the 2000s, the company was criticised for racially discriminating gay employees. By the year 2000, the number of locations increased to almost 420. In the year 2000 to 2001, the company started to address its staff and infrastructure issues, and also introduced a new technology, known as the order placement system. In the year 2006, the company had updated its marketing terms for encouraging new customers, by changing the design of its highway billboard advertisements in order to include images of the restaurant menu items. By the year 2011, the company had almost 600 restaurants under its name in nearly 42 states in the USA. As of the year, the founder of the company had passed away due to bladder cancer. The headquarters of the company is based on 305 Hartmann Drive. The name of the place is Lebanon, while the name of the state is Tennessee, United States. The pin code of the area is 37087.

    Attention Loyal Cracker Barrel Customers: What Ever you do, AVOID the La Grange KY Store #CB0290 !!
    We have had TWO VERY BAD experiences there. Most Recently on 12-10-22. It took OVER 3 Hours from arrival to departure. Upon Arrival, we were Seated within 5 Minutes, and our Server (Alena J) Immediately took our Coffee and Breakfast order. This was at 09:25, and the restaurant Was NOT Busy. However, it took OVER 25 Minutes to get Coffee, and our Breakfast was served 1 Hour and 30 Minutes After ordered. BOTH Meals were COMPLETELY COLD, Not Even Close to Warm. The server COULD NOT FIND the Mgr. (John), and we did NOT Reorder, since we were on a Road Trip with 5+ Hours of Drive Time ahead, and did NOT have another Hour and a Half to WASTE. After we Choked Down the COLD Pancakes, Bacon, Eggs, Hashbrowns, Gravy and Grits, we AGAIN asked for the Mgr. This time they Actually FOUND him walking around. When I informed him of the problem, he Offered NO Apology, but said he would get us 2 Promotional Cards for a FREE Breakfast. After ANOTHER 30 Minute Delay, I Went Searching for the Mgr. Myself. An employee found him in his office, and summoned him. He returned some 10 minutes later, with 2 cards for a FREE DESERT or CRAFTED COFFEE. UNACCEPTABLE. AVOID THIS LOCATION AT ALL COSTS. NOT the First Time. We FINALLY Departed at 13:15

    Your Statesboro Ga store has poor management who show favortism and Do not appreciate hard working employees and take them off the schedule for complaining about being treated unfair

  • andy seber says:

    This is regarding the Plainfield Indiana Cracker Barrel location- I would like to inform you that this is the third time in a row that we have ordered food to be delivered and it was missing the biscuits that were ordered. We did nothing after the first time but the second time we called and the person on the phone said the mangers were working the line and could not be disturbed. So we left our name and number because we were told a manager would call us which NEVER happened. We emailed and got the same response NOTHING. Third time we ordered and yet AGAIN no biscuits. I called yet again…. The person on the phone said the same thing again “the managers are all working the line” and didn’t want to be disturbed but said if it was real important she would go get a manager. I told her no that I didn’t want to bother one of your managers and apologized for the inconvenience I may have caused for calling about missing food for the THIRD time. I know Crackle Barrel doesn’t care but we have been a long time customer that will get our take out from a different restaurant. We have been trying to support businesses with how hard times are right now but this is making it very difficult to do.

    On Dec 20th my husband and I ate dinner at the Cracker Barrell in Fairburn, Georgia. When our waitress seated us there was something on the table and she took the menus and swiped it off.
    When we sat down there was a table on the Left and one on the right both tables were dirty with dishes etc. when we ordered I told her we wanted our food hot ( and it was WHEN we finally got it.
    She finally brought our coffee but we had no silverware on the table to stir the coffee with had to ask for silverware she went to get us some came back sometime later but gave the people in the back silverware no we didnt get any we ask again she had to go back to get ours finally came back with it and at that time a gentleman who was waiting in line to get a table walked to the kitchen door and said “ Anybody going to clean tables out here?” Our waitress had passed the tables and never cleaned any tables off as well as the other waitresses ( we were there an hour and a half) When we left there there were 9 dirty tables there was a woman sitting next to a window in the front dining area, there was the man that ask if anyone was going to clean any tables also a disabled lady and another lady with him. I took a picture of the dining room you can see the dirty tables, the lady in the back and the gentleman that complained. ( I will send the picture if you want to see it.

    I order at the Cracker Barrel at 1520 W. Nursery Rd, Linthicum Heights, MD 21090. I order online and it is very consumer friendly to order. Today I called at 11am to find out what soup they had today and they told me they had not decided yet. So I place my order. I ordered a French Dip sandwich that is suppose to come with a sampling of coleslaw, which I did not get and also AuJus, which I did not get. My sister ordered Turkey and stuffing. Her side was fresh fruit. That consisted of 5 pieces of pineapple and a few blueberries. There is usually something missing from my order when I pick it up!! I can tell you your Carry Out really needs to be improved. I won’t be ordering from there again!! This is not the first time I have complained. But it will surely be the last. And I will pass it on to everyone I know!!

  • Joe Watson says:

    I disagree with some of the things that the pastor said. However, try to be even handed if you are going to start banning people who say things that you don’t like. You have now fallen into the big gay trap. You need wiser heads to lead your restaurant chain. I feel sad for you. I use to like going to Cracker Barrel. I will miss it.

  • Timothy A. Jackson says:

    My name is Timothy A. Jackson, a disabled American War Veteran, and 30+ year customer of Cracker Barrel. I just finished reading some articles on Grayson Fritts and Cracker Barrel’s position to oppose God and the Scriptures and support the minority of perverts in America forcing their abominations on heterosexuals, especially our children. Businesses like yours should have thought about the sodomite issue, and issues like it, far more carefully. You are in business to make money, but you have lost a customer today. I vow before God our Creator I will never again eat at Cracker Barrel; I will find another restaurant to invest my money in. Businesses should never take sides on such issues and should remain neutral, that is, if they value their customer base. Making it known you prefer to DISCRIMINATE Bible-believing Christians in favor of the sodomite community is a foolish mistake on your part; if I were a practicing attorney I would certainly be taking up Mr. Fritt’s case against you on the grounds of your discrimination. Your values are grossly misplaced, and as a Veteran, I can speak for the men who have served and died for God, country, and the U.S. Constitution, all which used to be in agreement, that you are embracing abominations they did NOT give their lives to protect and defend. I am ashamed of you; you are part of the modern day cancer that is continually eating away at what used to be America the Beautiful, and have turned her into a lascivious whore. It is written “For the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Tim. 6:10), and money is obviously the reason you are supporting evil; but your philosophy is flawed; in time, because you are catering to a minority class of people, you stand to lose many from the majority of your customers who do not believe in the sodomite cause. I hope and pray God works to permanently close the doors of Cracker Barrel to be an example to all those that afterwards take the same position. I volunteered to go to war, and could have given my life; such a sacrifice is worthy to allow men like Mr. Fritt’s the guarantee and freedom to “preach the whole counsel of God” unabridged; but I would NEVER offer my life to allow a sodomite to practice his/her abominable lifestyle and to seduce my children behave un-naturally as they do. I am truly disgusted with Cracker Barrel.

    Timothy A. Jackson, Disabled American Veteran

    • Becky and Paul Smith says:

      I thank you and all Veterans for the sacrifices they have made. My son is military for 16 years my dad was a POW for 8 months in Germany and they too made sacrifices for our country. So I wish all of you Happy Holidays and God Bless you all! ♥️??♥️??♥️??
