Merchandise Replenisher, Lebanon, TN

A Replenishing Career
I work for Cracker Barrel as a merchandise
replenisher. Cracker Barrel serves over 200 million
meals a year and each Cracker Barrel unit takes
care of about 1,200 guests each day. Today there
are over 590 Cracker Barrel units in 41 states, and
we have been voted the best family-dining restaurant
in a national consumer poll for 19 years in a row!

I work at the company’s corporate office in Lebanon,
Tennessee. As a merchandise replenisher, I analyze
inventories to ensure the stores have the proper
amount of stock. I am responsible for approximately
12 product lines that are featured in more than
500 Cracker Barrel locations across the country. I
believe I have a positive impact on the experience
a guest has in our store. This is a fast-paced job
and I learn something new every day. I’ve been
working at Cracker Barrel for over five years and I
believe this company will provide me with even more
opportunities in the future.

Doubling Up
I started working in retail while going to college full-
time. I graduated from Fisk University (Nashville,
TN) with a degree in business administration and
eventually joined Cracker Barrel as a retail manager.
