Student Research

At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, we’re grateful to students who select Cracker Barrel for their research projects. We get daily requests for research assistance and general information. While we regret that we cannot respond to every request, we do hope the following information is helpful.

The best place to start is our Newsroom page. It includes our company history, news releases, recent awards and fun facts. We have also provided answers to the frequently asked questions we receive. We believe the answers provide some insight into our philosophy, our business, our management style and our commitment to pleasing people.

We’re trying to be helpful, but there are some issues that this section will not address:

Financial Information

We do not share sales data regarding our individual stores. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. is publicly traded and provides financial information through regularly scheduled news releases and filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. You may access those earnings releases by visiting the Investor Relations portion of this website.

Proprietary Information

The restaurant industry is very competitive and Cracker Barrel does not share confidential information that’s helped build our business. Cracker Barrel has made significant investments in our recipes, training manuals, Vendors & Supplier relationships and marketing strategies. Those investments are confidential.


We get interview requests every day from students and we simply don’t have the resources to address every question. We hope this section will address the questions you have.

Again, thanks for considering Cracker Barrel for your research project. We hope you’ll find this section helpful.
