ECOtality, a leader in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, and Cracker Barrel Old Country Store ® (NASDAQ: CBRL), today unveiled the first Blink® Direct Current (DC) Fast Charger in Tennessee at the Lebanon Cracker Barrel location. This is the first of 12 Cracker Barrel locations statewide that will install DC Fast Chargers as a part of The EV Project. The stations are able to charge a battery to 80 percent capacity in under 30 minutes—the fastest charge rate currently available.

“By strategically placing Blink charging stations, we are collecting the data needed to build a commercial infrastructure which will untether drivers from their garages,” said Jonathan Read, CEO of ECOtality. “We identified destination locations like Cracker Barrel as ideal for charging stations—places where people can grab a meal, charge up and go.”

ECOtality worked closely with Cracker Barrel during the site selection process, and took into account factors ranging from traffic patterns, retail destinations and input from other regional partners. “The Tennessee Triangle,” a 425-mile stretch of interstate highway connecting Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga, is the ideal location for Cracker Barrel’s 12 DC Fast Chargers, which are well suited for high-traffic commercial locations and major transportation corridors.

In addition to the fast chargers, Cracker Barrel stores will also be equipped with Blink Pedestal chargers that EV drivers may use to “top off” while shopping and dining.

“Cracker Barrel works hard to remain relevant in our guests' changing lives while continuing to offer the genuine hospitality and honest value associated with times past,” said Cracker Barrel CEO Sandra B. Cochran. “Our leadership role in the EV Project allows us to continue offering what our guests need and expect while also participating in a meaningful way in our nation’s explorations of energy independence.”
