SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 21, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Erik Forrest is bringing Dickey's Barbecue Pit to Scottsdale.
"I wanted to bring great Texas barbecue with a family friendly environment to my community," said Forrest.
Forrest has been in the restaurant industry for over 15 years. He worked as a chef in 5 star resorts and high end restaurants for 10 years.
"I chose Dickey's because it has a great business model and great barbecue," said Forrest. "I knew that if I was going to do a franchise that I needed to believe 100% in the business and the food."
Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941. Dickey's began franchising in 1994 and has continued to grow across the country. Dickey's currently has more than 200 locations in 36 states nationwide.
"I love the idea of being able to serve house smoked meat and tasty sides at a great affordable price to the surrounding community. A lot of restaurants are way overpriced nowadays," said Forrest.
Dickey's Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are slow smoked on-site in each restaurant. For more information, including a full menu, other restaurant locations and franchising opportunities, please visit www.dickeys.com.
