LEBANON, Tenn. -- November 01, 2012

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store^® salutes veterans of the United States
military, many of whom are guests and employees, with a special month-long
celebration of Veterans Day in addition to year round efforts. From November 1
through November 30, 2012, Cracker Barrel will donate 10% of the retail sales
price of special patriotic items, up to $25,000 to Wounded Warrior Project^®
(WWP). The items include Cracker Barrel’s signature Peg Game in red, white and
blue; a Patriotic Jelly Belly^® 10 Flavor Gift Box; and an American flag
Tervis^® Tumbler. All of the items are available online at crackerbarrel.com
and at all Cracker Barrel^® locations.

Cracker Barrel has a tradition of supporting organizations that provide for
the needs of our service men and women and veterans. Wounded Warrior Project
is a nonprofit organization that assists injured service members and their
families with programs and services designed to nurture the mind and body, and
encourage economic empowerment. Cracker Barrel has assisted WWP since 2006
through various promotions.

“Last year was the first time we modified our signature Peg Game because it
was a special way for us to show our support of the military,” said Cracker
Barrel President and CEO Sandy Cochran. “The idea really resonated with our
guests, so we expanded the offer with additional special products that we hope
will have wide appeal and provide worthwhile support for those who have served
our country.” In addition, Cracker Barrel created an informational flyer, “Why
do we celebrate Veterans Day?” that is available at no charge in all of their
stores and to download at
