iExit partners with Cracker Barrel for 2016 Holiday Season

By Evan Metrock on October 12, 2016

Atlanta, Georgia - October 12, 2016: iExit, the smartphone app that knows what’s at every Interstate exit, is partnering with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® to promote all of its restaurants along US Interstates during this holiday season.

iExit uses a smartphone’s GPS location to automatically detect when a user is on a US interstate and then displays upcoming exits and businesses without the press of a button. It also provides a powerful and intuitive search engine that allows users to see only the upcoming exits that have what they need, whether that’s diesel fuel, coffee, free Wifi, or even a specific business like Cracker Barrel. iExit has partnered with GasBuddy to display real-time gas prices by exit, as well as with Yelp to display its ratings and reviews by exit.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® serves authentic, high-quality, homestyle meals prepared from scratch. Cracker Barrel is known for providing a friendly, home-away-from-home atmosphere in its 640 restaurants and old country stores located in 43 states. Of its 640 restaurants, 562 of them are located near an Interstate exit.

“We are excited to be working with Cracker Barrel to promote their brand and their exit-based locations,” says Evan Metrock, CEO of iExit. “Many of our users are looking for high quality, family-friendly restaurants, which perfectly describes Cracker Barrel. With the majority of their restaurants being located near Interstate exits, it’s a great fit.”

Starting today through the end of December, Cracker Barrel’s brand will be promoted throughout iExit. Each of its 640 locations will be promoted, and each of its 562 exit-based locations will become the Sponsored Business at their respective exits.
