August 07, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS - In September, Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants across the country will be literally rolling out new dough. The new artisanal breads are modeled after Dickey’s signature rolls with a touch of Southern sweetness and fresh, simple ingredients. New bread items will include handcrafted buns, hoagies and dinner rolls baked daily in all restaurants.
“Customers love our rolls because they have a touch of sweetness that pairs perfectly with our hot pit-smoked barbecue and tangy barbecue sauce,” said Jeff Forrester, Vice President and Executive Chef for Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Now, all of our buns and hoagie rolls will have that same southern fresh bread recipe that I know our customers are going to love.”
The homemade bread products are part of Dickey’s menu innovations that now include the sale of whole meat options including slow-smoked briskets, pork butts, barbecue honey hams, smoked turkeys and full racks of ribs. With the new bread recipe, Dickey’s continues its commitment to fresh, wholesome ingredients and authentic home-style family meals.
“We are really shaking things with our menu -- the new bread just kicks off the hot new items we have planned,” said Forrester. “Dickey’s new bread has that authentic, right out of the oven flavor -- you’ll think your grandma made them.”
Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 72 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 300 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world’s largest barbecue franchise. This year both Technomic and Nation’s Restaurant News named Dickey’s “Fastest-growing restaurant in the country” and they were also named “Best Franchise Deal” by QSR Magazine.
