For months now rumors have been circulating about where Cracker Barrel will be opening locations in California.
The first rumor was about a location in the Sacramento area. See: Cracker Barrel in California?
Next was a news report that the first California location would be in Victorville which is on I-5 north of the LA metro area. See: First California Cracker Barrel Location
It is very probable that Victorville will be the first California location as there are now job postings for two managers for the Victorville location posted on Cracker Barrel’s employment site.
There have been some rumors about a location in Fresno, but this month more information has come out in the news. The Fresno Bee has reported that Cracker Barrel has signed a lease for a location on Herndon Avenue.

Here is a clip from Google Maps of where the Cracker Barrel is to be built. It will be interesting to see how long it will be until construction starts. If you see work starting or signs go up at the location please take pictures and send them to me.
The rumors are proving to be true. Now to just watch for more locations.
Where will the next rumor come from?
Hopefully from Stockton, Modesto or Tracy.
July 23 Update: Recent news reports say that Cracker Barrel is no longer opening a restaurant at this location.
