In 1981 Cracker Barrel became a publicly-traded company which facilitated the expansion and growth of the business. As of today, there are more than 650 locations in states such as South Dakota, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Georgia, Illinois, Florida, New Jersey, South Carolina, New York, Louisiana, and New Mexico.
