Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:

When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done.

You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong.

We listened.

Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores.

And, we apologize for offending you.

We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different.

We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.

Yeah, I guess there are more “Duck Dynasty” Customers than not!

What a bunch of weasels.

Can’t stand on what they believe. They just shift with the wind.


Think Henry Ford, Sam Walton, or Frank Mars would be like that?

(I don’t think so. They might be wrong, but they were business leaders.)


Phil from “Duck Dynasty” might be a lot of things, but those are his beliefs.

A&E, Cracker Barrel, and how many others have none!

Personally, WWJD? I think he might say: “Awful lot of judging going on. Isn’t that the Big Boss’ job? Get back to the Golden Rule.” 

Merry, or whatever seasonal greeting, if any, is appropriate for you.

(Remember I’m a “bah humbug” guy who cheers for the OLD Ebenezer.)
