CRACKER BARREL OLD COUNTRY STORE, INC. to eliminate use of all artificial transfats.


LEBANON, Tenn.– Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. (Nasdaq: CBRL) today announced an implementation plan that calls for the elimination of artificial trans fats from all of its menu items by the middle of 2008. The popular family-dining chain, known for its good country cookin’, has been reviewing and testing recipes and actively working with its suppliers since late 2006 to make changes in the products that are used to prepare the comfort foods for which Cracker Barrel is known.

“Cracker Barrel is taking steps to eliminate artificial trans fats because we care about the health and safety of our guests,” said Michael A. Woodhouse, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our goal is to eliminate trans fats where they are not naturally occurring without making any change in the quality of the food we serve. Our guests expect that, when they order a meal that they have been choosing for years, it will taste the same as what they have always had. We must meet that expectation.”

Cracker Barrel serves up classic comfort foods such as meatloaf and homemade chicken n’ dumplins as well as its signature biscuits using an old family recipe. The restaurant has been selected as America’s “Best Family Dining” in a national consumer survey conducted by Restaurants & Institutions magazine for 16 consecutive years. The restaurant consistently receives high scores for food quality in these surveys.
