Mark Engberson has partnered with Palouse Restaurant Group to open five new Dickey's Barbecue stores throughout eastern Washington in the Spokane region. Together the group owns a variety of fast casual and QSR concepts including Carl's Jr., Subway, Wingstop, and others. With over 80 years of combined experience in franchise foodservice, they have the skill and expertise backed by a national brand to deliver Dickey's barbecue to their customers.
"We were ready to diversify our portfolio and after speaking to other Dickey's operators, we knew it was the right choice," says Engberson. "With hard work, delicious, quality food and community spirit, we plan to earn our guest's loyalty and we look forward to bringing Texas barbecue with a side of southern hospitality to our community." Engberson's store already in Spokane has won first place in the "Best of Spokane 2015" barbecue division.
The Pacific Northwest is one of several hot markets for the Dickey's barbecue brand. With many development agreements in the works from Florida to California, Dickey's is truly a bi-coastal brand. Dickey's franchisees have distinct benefits, including hands-on training, community marketing support, and low franchise fees.
"The residents of Spokane got their first Dickey's Barbecue Pit more than two years ago, and since then our authentic slow-smoked Texas barbecue has been very well received," says Roland Dickey, Jr. CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurant's, Inc. "We congratulate Mark and the team at Palouse Restaurant Group and can't wait to help them get started on their new stores."
