June 10, 2014 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE - Steven and Lynn Swift spent years living overseas for Steven's career as an oil field engineer including 18 years in Jakarta where they raised their children. After 35 years, the Swift's were ready for something new. On Thursday, June 12 at 11:00 a.m., the Swift's will open the first of four Dickey's Barbecue Pits they have planned for the Omaha area. To celebrate their new endeavor, the new Omaha location is hosting a three-day grand opening celebration.

Their restaurant is located 15825 West Maple Road, Suite 107 and the store phone number is 402.408.2878. Check out all the details on this new location on Facebook.
