October 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // Albuquerque, NM - Shah, the former chief financial officer of Southwest Cheese Company, is ready for the new challenge. The first location in New Mexico opened in Hobbs last week with the highest grand opening sales in Dickey's Barbecue history.
"Even though New Mexico is in the Southwest, we unfortunately have very few barbecue options," said first time owner operator, Deepak Shah. "Dickey's was the perfect franchise for me and I know Albuquerque is going to love the food and fast casual concept."
Thursday, the first 50 dine-in guests receive gift cards worth up to $50. Friday includes free t-shirts, koozies, sunglasses and more with all day merchandise giveaways. On Saturday, radio station 103.3 ED FM is onsite from noon to 2 p.m. and this location is serving $2 pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. During the event, one lucky winner will be chosen for a $500 gift card and three winners receive free barbecue for an entire year.
The new Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Albuquerque is located at 4320 The 25 Way NE, Suite 650 and the phone number is 505.750.1331. You can follow along with this location on Facebook.
