Atlanta, Georgia - May 22, 2017: iExit, the smartphone app that knows what’s at every Interstate exit, is partnering again with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® to promote all of its restaurants along US Interstates for the Summer of 2017.

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 648 restaurants and old country stores located in 43 states. Of its 648 restaurants, 565 of them are located near an Interstate exit.

“We are excited to be working for a second time with Cracker Barrel to promote their brand and their exit-based locations,” says Evan Metrock, CEO of iExit. “We partnered back during the 2016 holiday season and it's great to see them happy with the results to sign back on. We look forward to long, mutually-beneficial relationship.”

Starting today through the end of July, Cracker Barrel’s brand will be promoted throughout iExit. Each of its 648 locations will be promoted, and each of its 565 exit-based locations will become the Sponsored Business at their respective exits.
