Cracker Barrel Opens First Store on West Coast

by Katie Lee

Lebanon, Tenn. — On April 17, 2017, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® opened a store in Tualatin, Ore., the first Cracker Barrel® location on the West Coast. Cracker Barrel’s entry into the Portland area marks a key expansion of Cracker Barrel’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,” says Nick Flanagan, senior vice president of restaurant and retail operations at Cracker Barrel. “Cracker Barrel has sourced high-quality ingredients from the West Coast for its stores for many years, and we are looking forward to growing as a member of the Tualatin community.”

Each Cracker Barrel store is uniquely decorated with real Americana artifacts, memorabilia and signage. In Tualatin, Cracker Barrel’s new store 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. Guests will also enjoy shopping in the old country store for toys, games, food items, apparel, accessories and other unique items.

William Morrison has been named general manager of the new location and has worked at Cracker Barrel for nearly 20 years.
