NJ was key to a senior couple's epic Cracker Barrel mission

This couple has visited every Cracker Barrel restaurant in the country ... except for one

Ray Yoder said travel was "in our blood", and Cracker Barrel was just "the best place to eat".

Ray and Wilma Yoder visit their 645th Cracker Barrel on Monday, August 28, 2017. Cracker Barrel is opening two new locations next year in Beaverton, Oregon, and Jantzen Beach, Oregon, so they plan to take another trip out west soon.

An Indiana couple says they have visited every Cracker Barrel restaurant in the country.

The monumental occasion also happened to be Ray Yoder's 81st birthday, and the restaurant put up a sign to welcome them. For one thing, they were greeted with applause and flowers.

"Travel was in our blood and we've always liked it", Ray explained in a new video produced by the restaurant.

On Monday, the Yoders stopped by their final Cracker Barrel store in Oregon.

Along with their favorite meal of blueberry pancakes, the couple received one-of-a-kind gifts from Cracker Barrel, including a pair of the chain's famous rocking chairs and aprons personalized with their names and the four stars that Cracker Barrel employees earn for the highest level of service. "It's quite special", Ray told reporters.

The Yoders crossed No. 644 off the list on July 7, when they attended the grand opening of a store in Lavonia, Georgia, according to The Lebanon Democrat in Cracker Barrel's hometown of Lebanon, Tennessee.

"For little farm kids, it's been very exciting for us", Yoder told People magazine.
