February 22, 2017 // Franchising.com // Dallas, TX - Starting this month, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit signature smoked sausages are available in Kroger locations throughout the Dallas Fort-Worth Metroplex. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has partnered with Eddy Packing Co. to bring Dickey’s delicious Original Smoked Fresh Polish, Smoked Spicy Cheddar and Red Hot Links to Kroger locations in Dickey’s hometown.
“Our goal is to make Dickey’s Barbecue Pit a national brand in the marketplace,” says Dean Sanders, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at Eddy Packing Co. “We are excited to work with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit on this venture and look forward to the opportunity of expansion.”
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit’s line of sausage has seen success in its previous retail launch at Walmart and Dickey’s looks forward to the partnership with Kroger to bring their delicious, high-quality sausage to 105 Kroger locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
All of Dickey’s sausages are gluten free and contain no MSG, nitrates or nitrites. They also come naturally hardwood smoked, making them easy to prepare at home.
“We are proud to launch Dickey’s signature smoked polish, red hot links and jalapeno cheddar sausage in Kroger locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex,” says Tamala Fowler, Senior Vice President of Retail Sales and International Development at Dickey’s Capital Group. “Dickey’s guests can now have the same delicious sausage when they are cooking at home as they have when they visit their local Dickey’s location.”
During the launch of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit’s sausage in Kroger, guests can find Dickey’s sausage in stand-alone displays in each of the 105 Kroger stores.
