Where does Cracker Barrel get all the stuff on the walls?

Answered by Jason Smith

Well, let me tell you, our Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores are a treasure trove of authentic Americana. And where do we get all that stuff on the walls? It’s quite a fascinating process, I must say.

You see, we have a décor warehouse located in Lebanon, Tennessee, where all the magic happens. This warehouse is home to over 100,000 unique pieces of Americana, and it’s constantly growing. Every item in our warehouse has been carefully selected to represent the rich history and culture of our great nation.

Now, you might be wondering how we acquire all these amazing pieces. Well, it’s a combination of various sources. We have a team of talented buyers who travel across the country, scouring flea markets, antique shops, and even private collections to find those special pieces that will make our stores truly unique.

These buyers have a keen eye for spotting authentic Americana. They look for items that tell a story, that have a connection to the past. And let me tell you, they have an incredible knack for finding the most interesting and one-of-a-kind pieces.

Once these items are acquired, they are carefully cataloged and stored in our décor warehouse. Each piece is given a unique identification number, so we can easily track its whereabouts. This helps us ensure that every Cracker Barrel store receives a diverse selection of pieces, creating a truly immersive and memorable dining experience for our guests.

But it doesn’t stop there. We also have a team of talented artisans who work tirelessly to restore and preserve these pieces of Americana. They take great care in repairing any damage and maintaining the authenticity of each item. It’s truly a labor of love.

And let me tell you, our décor warehouse is like stepping into a time capsule. Walking through the aisles, you’ll find vintage signs, antique tools, nostalgic toys, and so much more. It’s a feast for the eyes and a celebration of American history.

So, the next time you step into a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, take a moment to appreciate the incredible collection of Americana on the walls. Each piece has a story to tell, and we’re proud to be able to share that with our guests.
