Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is bringing homestyle comfort food crafted with care to Hollywood with the launch of Cracker Barrel Kitchen™, its first West Coast ghost kitchen, on Tuesday, Oct. 26. Serving the Hollywood area, Cracker Barrel Kitchen will exclusively offer delivery of homestyle favorites – from Buttermilk Pancakes to Country Fried Steak – with DoorDash, Uber Eats and Grubhub so that city dwellers can enjoy a taste of care sent directly to their doorstep. The opening marks the brand's first entrance into the Los Angeles market and leads expansion to come in the area over the next several months.
For over 50 years, Cracker Barrel has been dedicated to making sure every guest feels cared for like family. While the restaurant is traditionally located along highways throughout the core of America, the expansion of Cracker Barrel's virtual brands like Cracker Barrel Kitchen will allow for those in some of America's biggest cities to get a taste of the brand's beloved comfort food.
"We're officially making our Hollywood debut and couldn't be more excited to bring our homestyle food to Los Angeles for the first time," said Cracker Barrel Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Jennifer Tate. "Whether they're West Coast transplants who are feeling homesick or Los Angeles natives who have never tried our fan-favorite Hashbrown Casserole or Biscuits n' Gravy, we're looking forward to bringing our tried and true, handmade recipes to the Hollywood community."
Hollywood residents seeking a taste of home will be able to order Cracker Barrel's most popular dishes for delivery, such as:
- All-day breakfast including Momma's Pancake Breakfast, featuring Buttermilk Pancakes topped with butter and pure natural syrup, and Biscuits n' Gravy.
- Cracker Barrel's signature Chicken n' Dumplins and Country Fried Steakand signature sides like Hashbrown Casserole and Fried Apples.
- Kids menu classics like Kids Mac n' Cheese and Kids Fried Chicken Tenders.
- Sweet indulgences including Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola® Cake and freshly brewed Sweet Iced Tea.
Cracker Barrel Kitchen will be open for delivery from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. In the coming months, Cracker Barrel Kitchen is looking to expand to additional cities within Los Angeles County.
Additional Virtual Brands by Cracker Barrel Gain Momentum
Cracker Barrel's Los Angeles ghost kitchen will also serve its existing virtual brand Chicken 'n Biscuits by Cracker Barrel and its newest virtual brand The Pancake Kitchen by Cracker Barrel. These brands will allow residents in Metro Los Angeles to order hearty portions of delicious Southern Fried Chicken and Hand-Breaded Chicken Tenders or all-day breakfast favorites such as Buttermilk or Chocolate Chip Pancakes with signature homestyle sides for delivery.
