LEBANON, TN .– As Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary , the popular family restaurant company is honored to again be named “Best Family Restaurant” by consumers around the country. In winning the first place Platinum Award in the annual Consumers’ Choice in Chains awards for the 19th consecutive year, Cracker Barrel has again demonstrated its dedication to providing an excellent experience for every guest on every visit.

Woodhouse continued, “I am especially pleased to make note of the dedication of Cracker Barrel’s 66,000 employees. It is their commitment to our mission statement – “pleasing people” – that creates the welcoming environment and provides the high quality products for our guests. It is truly remarkable that Cracker Barrel has won this award for 19 years in a row, and I know that the reason for this is the outstanding work of our employees. Regardless of what state or what community they are in, our employees consistently offer up the same wonderful Cracker Barrel experience.”
