Dickey's Expands to Boca Raton

World's Largest Barbecue Franchise Signs Lease for New Location in Florida

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 22, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Florida just got a whole lot better! Dickey's Barbecue Pit will be coming to 21069 Powerline Rd. in Boca Raton.

"When I decided to follow my dreams as a food industry entrepreneur, Dickey's was a great fit," said new franchise owner Carol Vu. "The food is amazing and the quick serve concept was exactly what I was looking for."

Vu was born and raised in Barling, Arkansas and went to Loyola University in New Orleans. She lived in Texas for six years before putting down roots in Ft. Lauderdale three years ago. Before joining Dickey's, Vu worked in the customer development for companies including Michaels Stores, Inc. and Jarden Consumer Solutions.

"Florida is a very transient state and brings in people from all over the country," said Vu. "Everyone appreciates good barbecue and Florida is definitely lacking options for great barbecue."

According to Vu, she plans on opening several more locations in south Florida.

Since 1941, the world's largest barbecue franchise has offered free kids meals every Sunday and affordable family packs designed to bring the whole family together for dinner. Family packs come with a choice of two meats, three medium sides, six rolls and Dickey's famous barbecue sauce.
