America's Fastest Growing Barbecue Chain Gives Away Free Barbecue for a Year

Dickey's Barbecue Pit Celebrates Its Grand Opening in Austin

AUSTIN, Texas, July 13, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit's new location in Austin will hold its grand opening on Friday with a promotion to win free barbecue for a year and one dollar sandwiches throughout lunch.

Famous for its slow-smoked signature meats and home-style sides, the Texas-based chain will celebrate from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. while patrons enjoy dollar barbecue sandwiches.

"Our neighbors here in Austin love great, hickory-smoked barbecue and judging from our success so far, they love the Dickey's," said Chris Lottie, the owner/operator. "This past month has been truly rewarding—hard work finally culminating into positive results. The grand opening will be a great opportunity to celebrate the Austin community and officially mark the beginning for this Dickey's location."

Based on previous openings of the franchise in other areas, the event is projected to draw a large crowd of people participating in the festivities at 5207 Brodie Ln. in Sunset Valley, the site of the new Dickey's Restaurant.

Barbecue sandwiches will be $1 throughout the event, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Dickey's is growing at a rapid pace with 156 locations open in 38 states to date.

The first Dickey's Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX.

The original location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.

Dickey's only began franchising in 1994.

Even today, Dickey's still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
