Fill your tummy and your tank at Cracker Barrel

Interesting story from WMC-TV about Cracker Barrel adding electric vehicle chargers to restaurants across Tennessee...although it isn't clear whether it will include the Memphis location.

LEBANON, Tenn. (AP) - Cracker Barrel, modeled to represent a slower time of rocking chairs on old wooden porches, will soon feature a very modern technology - electric vehicle chargers.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. has launched a pilot project in which it will install Blink electric vehicle chargers, provided by ECOtality Inc., at 24 restaurants across Tennessee.

The pilot is part of a broader effort by ECOtality to get charging stations in more places across the country.

Cracker Barrel restaurants are mostly located near major highways where travelers can get to them, and back on the road, easily. ECOtality says this makes them an ideal fit for the charging stations.

Guests will be able to get a full charge in under 30 minutes.
