I write extensively about the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain for NewsBreak. In recent months, most of my articles on the subject have detailed unexpected restaurant closures. This piece, however, is different as it serves note of a new Cracker Barrel location opening.

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 US is Florida, with 60 restaurants, which is about 9% of all Cracker Barrel restaurants in the US.

In the coming weeks, a long-awaited new Fort Worth, Texas location will be opening.

Let us explore further.

Cracker Barrel, 2023

According to a report from, entitled “Cracker Barrel to Bring Homestyle Classics, New Favorites to Northeast Fort Worth,” the new entity has been eagerly anticipated by area residents.

As excerpted from the report: Cracker Barrel is set to open its newest location in northeast Fort Worth at 15805 North Freeway this summer, according to Jessica Mancuso, a corporate communications representative. Construction began on the 10,000-square-foot building in January. The building will house a restaurant, which can seat up to 160 guests at one time, and a gift shop.

Per the report, Mancuso said many factors were involved in deciding on this specific new location: “Cracker Barrel Old Country Store was founded to address the need for a place where those who are traveling and are far away from their homes can stop for good food in a place where they feel welcomed and cared for like family.”

It should be noted though the summer remains targeted, no formal date of opening has been announced as of press time.


This is a developing story. In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of progress and official announcements of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
