GAINESVILLE, TX-CBRL Group Inc., the Lebanon, TN-based parent of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, has bought a 1.69-acre pad site at the Gainesville Factory Shops. The plan is to immediately break ground on a 10,000-sf restaurant and gift shop.

The chain’s closest store is located about 50 miles south in Lewisville.
