CARSON CITY, Nev., Oct. 28, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- Franchise owners Hatice and Farrokh Gecol have found a place where their Dickey's Barbecue Pit will reside. They have signed a lease and are ready to begin transforming the former hot dog joint into a Dickey's Barbecue Pit.
"We are happy to have found a place that we can call our own," said Hatice Gecol. "I am excited for the day that we can open our doors and feed the community great barbecue."
The new 1,448 square foot store is located at 3250 Retail Drive, in front of a Wal-Mart.
"Hatice and Farrokh will have much success at their new location," said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "I cannot wait for them to open their doors to the public."
Texas-based Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened in 1941 and began franchising in 1994. Since then Dickey's has grown fast and is scheduled to have 200 locations by the end of this year.
The original Dallas location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue Pit is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family. Even today, Dickey's still slow smokes all of its signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
