Cracker Barrel Opens New Location in Reno, Nevada 10/30/2023 Store creates over 180 jobs, marks 3rd restaurant in Nevada; Food Bank of Northern Nevada Receives $10,000 gift as part of Cracker Barrel Food for Families initiative Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is proud to announce its newest location in Reno, Nev. Starting today, Cracker Barrel will open its doors to guests in Reno who will experience a unique, family-friendly restaurant that combines dining and shopping in an environment full of care and hospitality. To commemorate its arrival, Cracker Barrel is extending its care into the community with a $10,000 donation to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, a member of the Feeding America® network, to demonstrate care to local families in need and support the food bank’s mission to end hunger. “I’m excited to introduce the Reno community to its first Cracker Barrel,” said General Manager Michael Brehmer. “My team and I look forward to providing our guests in Reno with delicious, craveable food, a fun and delightful shopping experience and our warm and welcoming hospitality.” Cracker Barrel's third location in Nevada 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 store has created over 180 full- and part-time jobs that will help bring the Cracker Barrel dining and shopping experience to the Reno community. Each location features authentic memorabilia and décor that reflect our unique American culture and the community. In Reno, the new store celebrates the history and culture of Reno through decorative walls, unique to the store, like a rodeo-themed wall representing Reno’s western culture and casino and gambling-themed shadowboxes filled with authentic memorabilia from former casinos in the area. As an extension of the Cracker Barrel Food for Families initiative, which launched in November 2021, Cracker Barrel made a commitment to help alleviate hunger in each community in which it opens a new location by joining forces with local Feeding America member food banks. In Reno, Cracker Barrel is partnering with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada and presenting a $10,000 donation which will help provide funds for up to 30,000 meals* for families in need throughout the community. "We are pleased to welcome Cracker Barrel to the community," said Nicole Lamboley, President and CEO of the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. "We are also so appreciative of this generous donation from Cracker Barrel, helping us to deliver nutritious meals to families who need them right here in northern Nevada. Strong corporate partnerships such as this one is so very important to our work."

The store will be open Sunday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. To learn more visit
