“Dickey’s continues to swiftly expand throughout Tennessee and the South and we look forward to bringing quality hickory-smoked barbecue to the folks of Nashville,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We congratulate David and Ashley on the opening of their first Dickey’s store.”

Ashley and David, who served as managers for many years in the quick-service industry, decided to open a Dickey’s franchise because it offered an authentic Texas barbecue experience, where all quality meats are slow-smoked overnight with careful preparation and never reheated. “Our guests will be able to get a hot, fresh plate of barbecue within minutes – no one else offers what we do and we know Dickey’s will be perfect for the Nashville market. We are thrilled to offer barbecue to longtime fans of the brand and introduce it to new guests,” said David.

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Nashville is located at: 70 White Bridge Rd., Nashville, TN 37205. The phone number is 615-942-0660. Find Dickey’s on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
