Dickey's Barbecue Pit® Business Overview

Testimonials »

"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."

"I am new to the Dickey’s system, having opened my first location in December 2016. I chose Dickey’s because it is a growing, energetic brand. My family has been in restaurants my whole life, so I have experience with several other franchise concepts. So far, I can say that I appreciate how Dickey’s invests upfront in its business and its people. Communication has been great as we have settled in with Dickey’s. I have been able to get any questions answered by the home office, and now we have an online forum to talk with other Owner/Operators, so I feel that I am heard. I’m looking forward to opening several locations in my home state and am proud to be a Dickey’s Owner/Operator"

About Dickey's Barbecue Pit®

Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc., the nation’s largest barbecue chain was founded in 1941 by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic, slow-smoked barbecue. All meats are still slow smoked on-site in each restaurant which is why at Dickey's, “We Speak Barbecue.” The Dallas-based family-run barbecue franchise offers a quality selection of signature meats, savory sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids’ meals every Sunday. The brand has expanded to 550 locations in 47 states.
