Dickey’s Barbecue Pit To Expand in South Texas

Dickey’s has executed a development agreement for two new stores in South Texas .   

August 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // San Marcos, TX - Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is expanding in South Texas with two new locations slated to open in New Braunfels and San Marcos. The first location in New Braunfels will open at I 35 and FM 306 in Fall 2016. The San Marcos store will follow in 2017 with the location to be determined. 

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is continually expanding throughout our home state,” says Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. “We are proud to increase our presence in South Texas with these two new stores.”

Previously a manager in the oil and gas industry, Owner/Operator Kenneth Elliott has many years of experience in lean operations management. He has always been passionate about superior customer engagement, so Dickey’s Barbecue Pit was the right fit when the opportunity to invest in a franchise arose. “I’ve been a fan of Dickey’s my whole life,” Elliott says. “When I moved to South Texas I realized there was a need for Dickey’s on the I 35 corridor between San Antonio and Austin. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Dickey’s quality barbecue to New Braunfels and San Marcos.”
