Local Las Vegas Barbecue Enthusiasts Break into the Business with New Franchise Deal

Two new Dickey's Barbecue Pit locations coming soon.

LAS VEGAS - July 11, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Las Vegas local Kim Fewell was a self-taught Pit Master recreationally long before he joined the Dickey's Barbecue family. Although the barbecue enthusiast enjoys the at-home pit-smoking process, what intrigued him about Dickey's was the combination of delicious, authentic barbecue with the ease and convenience of a fast casual concept.

When Fewell retired a few months ago, he began looking into joining a franchise. He first experienced Dickey's barbecue on a trip to California and got the idea to bring the concept to his home community of Las Vegas, where there isn't an abundance of easily-accessible, authentic barbecue. According to Kim and his wife, Susan, Dickey's was a natural fit for the area as well as for them, personally.

"First of all, you can't beat the barbecue, but I also like the people at Dickey's and the brand itself," said Fewell. "Meeting Roland Dickey, Jr. really sealed the deal for me. I like the direction the brand is headed and see a lot of potential for growth."

Kim and Susan Fewell currently have two Dickey's Barbecue Pit locations under development in the Las Vegas area. The first is on track to open this fall, the second in summer 2018.

"It is important to us that our Owner/Operators share our passion for the art of great barbecue, and it is clear that Kim and Susan do," said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We are looking forward to a successful partnership and further expansion in Nevada with them."
