SUNNYVALE, Calif. - April 21, 2014 // PRNewswire // - What do the Bay Area and slow smoked Texas barbecue have in common? On Thursday, April 24 at 11:00a.m., Daniel Georgis will open the newest Dickey's Barbecue Pit in California with a three-day grand opening celebration. The first 50 guests at the Sunnyvale location will receive a gift card for up to $50.
"I decided to get in to the barbecue business after tasting the food," said Georgis. "I think Sunnyvale is an ideal location for the Dickey's Barbecue Pit concept. It has a diverse community and is home to many industrial, social media, technological and financial corporations. I see a great need for good Texas-style barbecue not only with the family atmosphere in the restaurant, but also with the many catering services they offer."

All meats are slow smoked onsite in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to almost 400 locations in 42 states and holds the title of the world's largest barbecue franchise.
