“Authentic barbecue is very hard to find in New York State,” said multi-unit franchise owner Reid Grubbs. “At Dickey’s we give New Yorkers a chance to taste hot off the pit barbecue at an affordable price.”
Grubbs is a Virginia state native. He now resides in Queensbury, NY near his first Dickey’s Barbecue location. His previous career was in the finance sector. He was looking for a new career adventure when he signed on with Dickey's back in 2011.
“Barbecue is a huge part of southern culture, but it translates really well to other parts of the country,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Our brand is really catching on up North and we’re excited to be sharing our passion for barbecue with New York.”
This new location in Clifton Park is located at 22 Clifton Country Rd. and the store phone number is 518-396-5844. At Friday’s event, Dickey’s will be raffling off free barbecue for a year; there will be three winners chosen.
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.
