We Speak Barbecue
As the fast casual barbecue leader* and a nationally established brand, Dickey's Barbecue Pit® offers decades of restaurant knowledge and a team of experts to assist franchise owners every step of the way. Founded in 1941 by Travis Dickey, Dickey's Barbecue Pit® has become known for mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue, popular catered events, and iconic Big Yellow Cups.
Unisex bathrooms, subway tiles, and dedicated lanes for online orders...this is not your father's barbecue joint! Dickey's Barbecue Pit®recently rolled out its fourth-generation store design and the new sleek design hits all the current fast-casual hot buttons and appeals to a larger demographic. The changes extend from the counter to the kitchen and include the décor, menu, and overall vibe.
At 1,500 square feet, the new footprint is smaller but still holds the same number of seats. A full 500 square feet of that floor space is dedicated to the open kitchen, which now positions the barbecue pit in full display behind the line. Dickey's Barbecue Pit® streamlined the menu, requiring fewer pieces of equipment to execute a more focused offering of meats and sides.
Long before our guests arrive, we begin slow smoking our barbecue with hickory wood smokers at every location just as it was done in 1941. In fact, we are so passionate about the quality of our ingredients that our meats are rubbed by hand with family recipes passed down from earlier generations.
Last year, Dickey's Barbecue Pit® sold over 27 million pounds of smoked meat in almost 500 stores**. As part of the Dickey's system, our franchisees enjoy group purchasing power to help reduce the cost of goods.
