You will want to verify that, many do not and it may not be clearly marked on the box. I just bought a new Badger and it comes without. Regardless, if you need a cord, you can salvage the one off the existing disposal.

With the granite sink, makes sure that it is a top mount first, if not you could be in for a rude awakening when it comes time to fit it. The next thing is that you want a minimum 1/4" support around the perimeter rim of the sink. That is to say that the counter should extend under the sink rim by at least 1/4" on all sides, more if you can get it.

Do verify the proper caulk for installation, I recall that silicone can stain stone. If this is a cultured sink, then it may not matter.
