Video: Cracker Barrel Looks to Corinth for New Location

CORINTH, Miss. (WCBI) — A popular restaurant known for its biscuits, ham and other home-cooked meals will soon open its doors in Corinth.

Cracker Barrel will open the new location Monday. Today, VIPs, friends and family were able to enjoy a special preview.

The restaurant is 10,000-square-feet, and it will employ some 200 people.

The store’s general manager is from Booneville, and has been with the restaurant since 1999, right after he served in the United States Navy.

“Cracker Barrel and the military kind of go hand in hand, where the structure — the outline — falls right in sync, so military folks tend to do well in Cracker Barrel,” Cracker Barrel General Manager Jason King said.

The Corinth location is the twelfth Cracker Barrel in Mississippi. Nationwide, there are 628 restaurants in 42 states.
