Cracker Barrel To Offer EV Charging Stations

  • Cracker Barrel To Offer EV Charging Stations

    Thirty years after exiting the fuel service business, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store will again be offering alternative fuel to their restaurant customers, this time via electric vehicle charging stations at 24 locations.

    “In the early days, Cracker Barrel provided food for our guests and fuel for their cars. While we expect that use of the electric chargers will be light during this pilot project, making this available to our guests is consistent with our brand reputation of hospitality, service, and value,” CEO Michael Woodhouse said. The company removed fueling pumps in the early 1970s.

    The project will allow guests to receive an 80% charge in under a half hour at the 12 participating Cracker Barrel locations with DC Fast Charging stations. Twelve additional locations will have the slower Blink EV L2 chargers. Installation is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2011 and to be completed within a few months.

    It’s interesting to see new players enter the retail fuel market as electric vehicle charging stations slowly become available.
