“Cracker Barrel’s success comes from our employees,” said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation President Terry Deas. “If they succeed, we succeed. Our goal is for every employee and their children to have opportunities to excel on the job and in life, while achieving their personal goals. Sara is a commendable individual, and I could not be more proud to have them as part of the Cracker Barrel family. We wish them the best of luck this school year.”
