The first Cracker Barrel Old Country Store opened on September 19, 1969 in Lebanon, Tennessee. It has grown over the years to 650 restaurants in 45 states. The eatery brought its homestyle Southern cooking to California for the first time this year in Victorville. The Camarillo location will continue this trend.
Cracker Barrel is a publicly traded company, stock symbol CBRL. Its current market valuation is nearly $4 billion, with revenue in its most recent several years totaling just under $3 billion. That's a lot of chicken fried chicken, meatloaf and biscuits and gravy!
