DALLAS (Nexstar) — Want a little booze with your buttermilk biscuits? Spirits are coming soon to most Cracker Barrel locations across the country.
The Southern-style food chain is set to add alcohol to menus at hundreds of its restaurants following a test run in a few states earlier this year.
During a recent earnings call, CEO Sandra Cochran said the alcoholic offerings were “surprisingly popular” with its patrons.
“I think we expect to have it in about 600 stores by the end of the year but we’re doing it as quickly as we can,” Cochran said on the call.
So what can you expect? Beer, wine and mimosas — the latter of which turned out to be a popular offering for breakfast and lunch diners during the test.
Cochran also said it’s possible the chain will work in seasonal drinks, according to the report.
Cracker Barrel operates roughly 660 company-owned locations across 45 states.
