New Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Saddles Up to Corpus Christi

Nation's Largest Barbecue Chain Opens New Texas Location

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - October 13, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - On Thursday, October 17 at 11:00 a.m. Dickey's Barbecue in Corpus Christi will be open for business. The first 50 dine-in customers will receive a Dickey's gift card for up to $50 to kick-off the opening party.

"I'm very excited to introduce authentic pit-smoked barbecue to Corpus Christi," said local franchise owner Sherry Zimmerman. "Our community needs a local barbecue place and I just know customers will love the great food and family atmosphere here at Dickey's Barbecue Pit."

Friday the celebration continues from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with $2 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches and a drawing for a $500 gift card good at any Dickey's Barbecue Pit location.

Brian and Sherry Zimmerman are from Kingsville, TX. Sherry was a stay at home mom before owning a Dickey's Barbecue Pit. Every time the couple ate out Sherry wanted barbecue. The couple was introduced to Dickey's Barbecue while on a trip to Dallas. It was always part of their plan to open a restaurant. The franchisees would like to eventually open three locations.
