BILLINGS, Mont. - March 13, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, the largest barbecue franchise in the country is opening its first location in Montana this Thursday, March 14 in Billings. Dickey’s will open its doors at 11 a.m. and the first 100 guests will receive a free mouthwatering Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwich.
“We can’t wait to open and begin serving authentic pit-smoked barbecue to this great community.”
“It is an honor to be bringing the first Dickey’s location to Montana,” said franchise owner Ray Russell. “Billings is a great town with many big-name fast casual restaurants, but the community has very few choices for authentic barbecue.”
Russell was born in Butte and has spent most of his life there. After retiring from the Butte-Silver Bow government, he joined the Social Security Administration Office as a contract guard and has been there for over 10 years.
“Joining the Dickey’s brand has been an overwhelmingly exciting experience,” said Russell. “We can’t wait to open and begin serving authentic pit-smoked barbecue to this great community.”
This new location is near the heart of the commercial district in downtown Billings, one block from the Crown Plaza Hotel. The store phone number is 406-969-3909.
Easter is right around the corner so why not let Dickey’s do all the work and you take the credit. Dickey’s is offering whole Barbecue Honey Ham and complete meals at every location. To find out more, visit your local Dickey’s.
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.
