Dickey's Has Georgia on Their Mind

Restaurant Chain Looking to Expand in the Saucy Atlanta Area

ATLANTA, March 13, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit is planning a global barbecue takeover and Atlanta is next on their list. The world's largest barbecue chain has five stores in the Atlanta area and is looking to add more in 2012. They are currently searching for sites to add to their expansion plans.

"We are growing at an incredible rate," said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "The Dickey's family is looking forward to continued growth in the Atlanta area."

Dickey's Barbecue added over 66 stores last year and is planning to add 100 new locations nationwide in 2012. The fast casual restaurant chain just signed two new leases and is currently looking for sites in Suwanee.

"Our customers and community have really been taken with Dickey's Barbecue," said Carla Kuehl, owner of Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Peachtree City. "We have good food and good service – we turn all of our customers in to repeaters."

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.

With every new restaurant, the company creates additional jobs for landlords, brokers, construction companies, and of course the city itself. This is great news for the Atlanta area.

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.
