Cracker Barrel cuts 60 jobs

Move will save $10 million as company faces cost pressures from commodities

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. has eliminated 60 management and staff positions in an effort to reduce corporate costs amid increased commodity pricing and challenged sales for the operator of 603 family-dining and retail restaurants.
