Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Comes to Kalamazoo, MI

September 26, 2018 // Franchising.com // Kalamazoo, MI - New Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchisee Krage Fox is opening his first Dickey’s in Kalamazoo, Michigan this Fall 2018.

“The Dickey family congratulates Krage Fox on opening his first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location in Kalamazoo,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We are always proud when we are able to expand Dickey’s presence nationwide, especially with those that are passionate about the art of crafting Texas-style barbecue.”

A Michigan native, Krage, has been waiting to bring a delicious barbecue option to his hometown. His first career was as a dishwasher at age 16 and from there ignited a passion for the restaurant industry. For the majority of his career, Krage has been in the pharmaceutical world and after his retirement, he knew that opening a Dickey’s would be the best opportunity to do something that he loves.

“Owning my own restaurant has something that I have always been interested in,” says Krage. “After researching the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit concept and learning more about the family owned business, I knew that it was the perfect fit especially with the strong support the Dickey’s Home Office offers to its franchisees.”

Krage and his business partner are excited to bring Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to their community and plan to open more locations in the future.
