Bob and Barbara Rusnak opened their first Colorado Springs location after retiring from the Air Force. Before they opened their first Dickey's in 2012, they attended Barbecue University in Dallas, a four-week training program that teaches franchisees the Dickey's Barbecue business concepts, such as smoking techniques and store operations and marketing. This is their third location in Colorado Springs. "There is a niche for slow-smoked Texas barbecue in Colorado Springs," said local franchise owner Bob Rusnak. "Guests love the food and we can't wait to celebrate our newest location with the community that's made our locations successful."
