Our vendors and suppliers are a key ingredient in our commitment to Pleasing People®, helping us provide the products and services our guests enjoy.
Since the very first Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® restaurant opened in 1969, our mission of Pleasing People® has never wavered. The ideals of fairness, mutual respect, and equal opportunity for all people are at the core of our corporate culture. Those ideals are the driving force behind treating everyone who is our guest, who works with us, and with whom we do business, fairly and with respect.
Our supplier diversity program provides an equal opportunity to compete for our business, regardless of race, national origin, physical ability, gender, or sexual orientation. With a strategic sourcing mission aimed at ensuring that our stores are continuously supplied with products and services of the specified quality, at the best possible cost, establishing and maintaining relationships with diverse businesses just makes good business sense. At Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, we recognize the importance of diversity and believe it is a key ingredient in fostering long term economic growth in the local communities in which we operate. We will leverage our program to better understand and serve our diverse markets, with the belief that our inclusive strategies will ultimately create value – for our guests, our company, our shareholders, and our suppliers.
