DALLAS - Sept. 24, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. has just executed two development agreements with a family franchisee team in Ohio and northern Kentucky, totaling 13 stores. Brothers Kevin and Randy Daniel recently added eight stores to an existing five – store agreement signed earlier with their team of investors. This is one of the largest development agreements into which the barbecue chain has engaged. With eight stores currently located in Ohio, this deal will effectively double the national barbecue chain's footprint in The Buckeye State.
Owner / Operators Kevin and Randy Daniel currently own two stores in Mason and South Lebanon, Ohio, and are working on opening their third. Initially, the Daniel brothers signed a 5-store agreement, but then decided to take the leap to own the entire market. "Randy and I have been in business together most of our lives," Kevin says. "We love to work with people and develop them to their full potential." The brothers chose to invest with Dickey's Barbecue Pit because of the quality product and great ongoing support for their franchisees.
"Our Owner / Operators love the franchise model that has proven to be successful," said Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurant's, Inc. "We have over 500 locations across the country and Ohio is a rapidly expanding market for slow-smoked barbecue. We look forward to continuing to grow here and in other hot markets such as California and Florida."
The tri – state region is quickly embracing Dickey's brand of Texas-style, slow-smoked barbecue as the chain grows exponentially nationwide. Franchisees have been eager to take advantage of all that the barbecue chain offers, including hands-on training, community marketing support and low franchise fees.
