The first California Cracker Barrel opened this week in Victorville, California. The second one in California will open sometime around May in Sacramento, and a third one has been approved in Santa Maria.
I had heard earlier rumors about a Cracker Barrel in Santa Maria so I have been watching for news. This week the Santa Maria planning commission issued a planned development permit to Cracker Barrel for a site at the corner of Bradley and Betteravia.
The site is just off of Hwy 101 so if you are heading up or down the coast between the Bay Area and LA it will be a good stopping point. Santa Maria is about two hours north of LA and about four hours south of the Bay Area.
This will be a good location for Cracker Barrel as Hwy 101 has a lot of tourist traffic.
Santa Maria may be worth a road trip as it is not far from Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo where I have some friends I haven’t visited for awhile.
I have heard that the short term plan for California is for six locations. Where will the other three be?
