Breakfast fans, brace yourselves: company officials broke ground on a new Cracker Barrel location in Rocklin on Monday.

The country-style restaurant has four other restaurants in California – including one in Sacramento – and will seat 180 guests at a time, Cracker Barrel spokeswoman Breeanna Straessle said in a news release Monday. The chain is known for its southern comfort food.

The restaurant and store are tentatively set to open in November, Straessle said, and the company plans to hire more than 175 full- and part-time employees. The region’s first Cracker Barrel location opened at 1000 Howe Avenue in July of last year.

The Rocklin Planning Commission approved the Rocklin Station project in August 2017, which included the addition of the new Cracker Barrel location and a Les Schwab Tires, Chick-fil-A, Habit Burger and Del Taco. The 6.6-acre parcel of land reserved for the project is located near the intersection of Sierra College Boulevard and the I-80 off-ramp.
