DALLAS - November 06, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. today announced a partnership with Hope for the Brave, a North Texas organization focused on building awareness and facilitating collaborations in housing, healthcare, education and employment for veterans re-entering the community.

About Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants
