Store creates approximately 180 jobs; Bryan Houk named general manager
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is proud to announce its newest location in Wichita, Kansas. Starting Monday, Nov. 12, Cracker Barrel will open its doors to families in Wichita, who will experience a restaurant that combines dining and shopping as a seamless experience in a relaxing, comfortable environment. Cracker Barrel will share its popular homestyle Southern cooking and range of quality retail offerings with Wichita families and travelers.
Cracker Barrel's 5th store in Kansas is part of its plan to deliver the unique experience that has made the brand so beloved across the country to new guests. Cracker Barrel’s new Wichita store has created approximately 180 full and part-time jobs that will help bring the Cracker Barrel dining and shopping experience to the Wichita community.
“We are excited to add another store in Kansas,” said General Manager Bryan Houk. “With our last Kansas store opening 20 years ago, we are ready to be a home-away-from-home to even more Kansas families and visitors.”
At Cracker Barrel, breakfast is available all day with lunch and dinner options beginning at 11 a.m. Cracker Barrel serves homestyle meals prepared from scratch like homemade chicken n’ dumplins, as well as its Wholesome Fixin’s® meals, which are full-flavored options freshly prepared with a lighter twist on guest-favorite dishes. Each Cracker Barrel location is decorated with authentic artifacts, memorabilia and signage collected by a team of Americana experts. In Wichita, Cracker Barrel’s new store celebrates the history and culture of the local area through decorative walls that pay homage to the city’s title as “The Air Capitol of the World” and history as a trading post along the Chisholm Trail.
The Wichita store will be open Sunday through Thursday, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. CDT, and Friday and Saturday, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. CDT.
