HOUSTON - Jan. 3, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Dickey’s Barbecue is adding to its Texas fleet in the Houston Galleria area. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will open its doors on Friday, January 4 and the first 100 customers will receive a free Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwich.
“We are huge barbecue fans so Dickey's was a perfect fit for us,” said new franchise owner Jefferson Carroll Langham, Jr. “Dickey’s offers a sound business concept along with a well-run franchise system that made us very excited to join the concept.”
Prior to owning a Dickey’s, Langham, Jr. was a property manager for his family's real estate firm. He grew up in the small town of Rice, Texas before moving to the Houston area when he was 18 years old.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Houston's thriving business community and to have the opportunity to help provide jobs to the local people,” said Langham, Jr.
This store is located in Houston’s Galleria area right on the main drag of Westheimer Road, just minutes from the Galleria Mall.
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.
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 270 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.
