Iconic restaurant/retail brand opens first store on West Coast


Nearly 50 years after it opened its first location, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has landed on the West Coast.

The chain, which combines a family-friendly restaurant with an old-fashioned country store, has opened Tualatin, Oregon. The location marks a key expansion of the company’s footprint.

“With the opening of our first store in the Portland area, Cracker Barrel is bringing its mission of 'pleasing people' to the West Coast,” said Nick Flanagan, senior VP, restaurant & retail operations at Cracker Barrel.

Each Cracker Barrel store is uniquely decorated with Americana artifacts, memorabilia and signage. The new Tualatin location celebrates the history and culture of the local area through decorative walls that pay homage to the famous Oregon Trail, the region's contributions to agriculture and music, Portland's status as a research hub and to the much-loved pastimes of bicycling and skiing.

Cracker Barrel currently operates 643 restaurants and stores.
