The Lebanon-based restaurant chain already sells items like pancake and corn muffin mixes, cobbler filling and syrup in the stores attached to its restaurants and online.
But The Tennessean reports that the chain has signed a multiyear licensing agreement with John Morrell Food Group that will make those products available at grocery stores, mass merchandisers and other retail outlets.
Cracker Barrel has not yet said when those products will hit store shelves or how much revenue they expect the strategy to generate.
Analysts said the strategy is a low-risk way to increase brand awareness and revenues, as long as they don't overreach.

More women arrested for pain pills stresses jails
May 21, 2013 16:44 GMT
KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee prosecutor says the burgeoning pain pill problem is filling jails beyond capacity with women.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney General Russell Johnson told the Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/13HXKj6 ) three of the four counties in his district have overcrowded jails, largely because of an increase in women being arrested.
Johnson said women are becoming pain pill addicts and described the situation as an epidemic.
Johnson said when mothers become addicted, their children often go without food and parenting. He said sometimes children end up under the care of the Department of Children's Services, further stressing an overburdened agency.
