Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Pursues Expansion Throughout New England
Dickey’s currently has locations in 45 states and looks to continue expansion in the Northeast
January 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // Dallas, TX - Dickey’s Barbecue Pit began as a single barbecue joint in Dallas, TX in 1941 and has since become the nation’s largest barbecue chain with almost 600 locations nationwide. With new locations being built throughout New England, there are few states that Dickey’s Barbecue Pit still has yet to establish locations.
New and existing Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Owner/Operators have signed on to open new locations in north eastern states such as Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York. Although Dickey’s began in Texas, people across the nation crave Dickey’s authentic, slow-smoked barbecue.
“At Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, we are constantly looking for new Owner/Operators to help us grow our brand nationwide,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has seen great growth nationwide and we look forward to continuing that expansion.”
