Here's When the New Cracker Barrel Will Open in Cold Spring

Northern Kentucky will have a new Cracker Barrel Old Country Store this summer.

The new location will open at 4210 Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring.

Many people will remember the site as Guys & Dolls, Devanna's on the Lake, or Buckskin Bev's. The old building has been torn down to make way for the new Cracker Barrel, which received blessing from the city in November.

The company announced on Monday that it hopes to have the new location open in July and that it will hire more than 175 full and part-time employees. The 10,000 sq. ft. restaurant (including its famous front porch) will be able to host 180 guests.

The design team at Cracker Barrel is currently researching Cold Spring and will select antique decor in the coming weeks. The company promises to share a sneak peek soon.

Cracker Barrel is known for its southern-inspired meals and folksy country gift shop found inside every location. There are more than 600 locations across the country, including one in Florence.
