The Real Deal New York

Cracker Barrel could be coming to Commack

Two national construction companies that have built locations for Cracker Barrel Old Country Store have requested bids from subcontractors for a restaurant in Commack. Some believe this could mean that the popular restaurant chain plans to open its first Long Island location. A similar rumor circulated and was quickly denied by the company in 2015. Regarding the recent rumors, a company representative said they had no news to announce at this time. The invitation to bid for electrical work, from Georgia-based Venture Construction Co. states that the building is 9,170 square feet with a 1,316-square-foot porch. The other company seeking bids is Ideal Co. of Ohio. Venture’s filing declares the building will be a Cracker Barrel, but Newsday turned up no records mentioning the chain with the The Town of Smithtown Assessor’s Office or Board of Zoning Appeals. [Newsday]
