BECKLEY, W.V. - Feb. 5, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - West Virginia welcomed its first Dickey’s Barbecue last October. Local owners Stephanie and Preston Reeves were enthusiastic about bringing the authentic taste of Dickey’s to the Beckley area. On Friday, February 8, the couple will be throwing a grand opening celebration from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. where customers will enjoy $1 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches.
“The Beckley community has been so supportive and receptive to our slow pit smoked authentic barbecue concept,” said Stephanie Reeves. “Joining the Dickey’s family and working every day in our restaurant has been a dream come true.”
The Reeves are both native West Virginians, only leaving the state during Preston’s stint in the United States Air Force. Stephanie brings over 15 years of management experience, and Preston has worked for the United States Postal Service for the last 18 years.
The store is located at 1002 N. Eisenhower Dr., and the store phone number is 304-252-PORK. For up-to-date information on promotions and events visit the Facebook page for this location.
Don’t forget every Monday now through February, Dickey’s Barbecue is offering $2 Big Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches. This deal will make your mouth water; Dickey’s fills a buttery toasted bun with juicy marinated chicken breast, pickles, and onions and then smothers it in Dickey’s signature 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 280 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.
