GEORGETOWN, Texas, Sept. 18, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants announces the opening of its newest Texas location in Georgetown. The new location will open Thursday, September 20 and the first 100 customers will receive a free Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwich.
"Everywhere I go people show their excitement about a Dickey's Barbecue Pit opening," said franchise owner Marcos Esquivel. "Georgetown is a great family friendly community and I know they are going to love our food."
Esquivel is from Austin, Texas. Prior to owning a Dickey's Esquivel was a successful general manager for Jiffy Lube and Sprint. For years, Esquivel also excelled in performing arts and has starred in several commercials and films.
"I respect Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants and their successful family owned franchise concept," said Esquivel. "Family is so important and my parents have supported me throughout the whole process and really helped make this dream possible. Unfortunately, I recently lost my Dad, but I know he would be so proud."
The Georgetown location is at 723 West University Ave. and the store phone number is 512-355-7696.
Dickey's has more than 90 locations throughout the Lone Star State and has plans to open new locations this year in Levelland, Mansfield, Carrollton, Duncanville, Cypress, and Ennis. Founded in 1941, Dickey's has mastered the art of slow smoking meats to perfection every night and is proud to give the Georgetown area the right balance of juicy tender meats, topped with the Dickey's family recipe barbecue sauce and savory home-style sides.
Dickey's Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 70 years later, the Dallas-based family run barbecue franchise still offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids meals every Sunday. All meats are slow smoked on site in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 250 locations in 43 states and holds the title of the world's largest barbecue franchise. This year Nation's Restaurant News named Dickey's "Top Five Growth Chains" and they were also named "Best Franchise Deal" by QSR Magazine.
