I write extensively about the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain for NewsBreak. In recent months, most of my articles on the subject have detailed either individual location closures, or openings.

This piece will be an example of the latter.

Firstly, for perspective, per There are 661 Cracker Barrel restaurants in the United States as of May 10, 2023. The state with the most number of Cracker Barrel locations in the U.S. is Florida, with 60 restaurants, which is about 9% of all Cracker Barrel restaurants in the U.S.

Now comes word that yet another new Cracker Barrel location will be opening, this one in the state of Maryland.

Let us explore further.

Cracker Barrel, 2023

According to a May 12th report from, “Out With Fuddruckers, In With Cracker Barrel,” the new entity is scheduled to open late next year.

As excerpted from the article: Cracker Barrel has signed a long-term ground lease to construct a brand-new approximately 9,100 SF restaurant with over 1,300 SF outdoor patio/porch space on the 1.35 Acre pad site located at Annapolis Restaurant Park on the parcel that was the former Fuddruckers. Cracker Barrel is currently working through the permitting with Anne Arundel County, with an expected opening in late 2024. Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc., established in 1969 in Lebanon, Tennessee, operates over 665 company-owned locations throughout 42 states.

Though scheduled to open in 2024, no specific date has yet been announced by the company.
