Dickey's Barbecue Pit® Franchise Opportunity

Testimonials

I joined the Dickey’s system in 2006, and a lot has changed in 11 years. When I first joined, the system was significantly smaller. The brand has grown exponentially in the last few years, which means the home office had to grow to accommodate. I’ve seen internal structure be put into place, which has helped us grow to where we are now. There has been a lot of change as we grew, but the best change by far is the training program. We have an online training program and daily videos that are great to train new employees and refresh the veterans. We are successful because we work hard to uphold the highest standards, and the training tools are great daily reminders for everyone.

Before I invested with Dickey’s I researched several barbecue concepts. I knew I wanted to add a barbecue restaurant to my portfolio and I went with Dickey’s because the product was high-quality and simple. I currently own seven Dickey’s locations with my brother, and we have been in business with Dickey’s for seven years. We kept seeing great success with each store opening, so we kept coming back for more. Overall, Dickey’s has evolved to meet the needs of today’s guests with advances such as online ordering and third party sales, which is great for attracting new people to try our barbecue. Sales trends come and go, but quality food is what keeps us steady.

Dickey's Barbecue Pit® Franchising: Join Our Family!

At Dickey's Barbecue Pit, we are passionate about the art of great barbecue! And we are proud to be the largest barbecue franchise in the world.

Our History

Dickey's Barbecue Pit prides itself on authenticity, innovation and mouthwatering hickory-smoked barbecue. In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first location in Dallas, Texas. Franchising began in 1994 after loyal guests and barbecue fanatics demanded more locations. Roland Dickey, Jr. became Chief Executive Officer in 2006 continuing the family tradition. As the fast-casual chain racks up recognition, the Dickey family still serves up the same quality barbecue recipes handed down for generations coupled with the same brand of southern hospitality, only on a much larger scale. The fast-casual concept has expanded to more than 550 stores in 44 states with international locations slated to open in late 2018.
