Cracker Barrel Headquarters

  • The headquarters for Cracker Barrel Old Country Store is located in Middle Tennessee east of downtown Nashville, in the town of Lebanon and is comprised of 98 acres.
  • The beautiful campus includes three man-made lakes and five buildings. Two additional corporate buildings are located outside the gates of campus. All corporate buildings comprise over 650,000 square feet.
  • The lakes provide landscape irrigation so the company does not have to use city water.
  • The land was originally a working farm with beautiful trees, with some being more than 40 years old, including the Spring Creek Bladder Pod tree. The Spring Creek Bladder Pod tree, which only exist in Wilson County and is on the endangered species, is monitored annually by the state.
  • The duck, geese, deer and turkey that roam the serene campus setting all found the campus on their own and are welcomed guests. In fact, we think of them now as family and our campus is their home. We love how they greet employees who walk the trails winding through campus.
  • The original corporate office from 1969 was in a different location. The company began construction of its current campus in the 1970s and moved into the first building in 1974.
