October 14, 2014 // Franchising.com // Hobbs, NM - On Thursday October 16 at 11 a.m., New Mexico will get a piece of their Texas neighbor when Jason Scott opens Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in his hometown of Hobbs. To celebrate his new endeavor, Scott is hosting a three day grand opening where the first 50 dine in guests receive gift cards worth up to $50.
"I was ready for a change after 22 years in the medical field and I knew Hobbs was missing a great variety of restaurants, specifically barbecue," said first time owner, Jason Scott. "When researching top franchises, I found Dickey’s Barbecue and decided this would be perfect for Hobbs."
On Friday, guests can grab Dickey’s Barbecue gear with all day merchandise giveaways. On Saturday from noon to 2 p.m., radio station The Eagle 100.9 will be on-site when one lucky winner will be chosen for a $500 gift card and three winners receive free barbecue for an entire year.
