SPOKANE, Wash. - Jan. 17, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will soon be serving authentic pit-smoked barbecue in Spokane. The nation’s largest barbecue franchise currently has five locations in Washington State.

“We both fell in love with the food at Dickey’s,” said franchise owner Dawn Carr who owns and operates this location with Walt Buyea. “After some researching the concept, we were impressed with the history and direction of the brand – we wanted to be a part of this amazing growth story.”

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.
