Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Expands in Egypt
Dallas, Texas, Nov. 17, 2021 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Dickey’s Barbecue Pit’s international expansion continues into the Middle East with the introduction of the newest location in Cairo, Egypt. The barbecue franchise partnered with the Swinder Group to open its first location in Egypt.
Swinder’s operators, the Toama family, purchased their first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchise in 2019 but were unable to open due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Cairo restaurant is now set to open in early December 2021.
“We are excited to bring a truly unique concept to Cairo, featuring iconic premium meats and savory Southern sides that will delight seasoned barbecue fans or newbies alike,” says Abdelrahman Toama, a partner at Swinder. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with our corner unit location in the City Centre Almaza mall. The location is close to the airport and generates a lot of foot traffic so customers can conveniently satisfy their craving for mouth-watering, slow-smoked Texas-style barbecue.”
The unit is a single level with seating for approximately 124 guests.
“The entry into Cairo, as our first stop into Africa is extremely symbolic, as Cairo is complete with history, culture and cuisine. This partnership will anchor our brand and act as an international showcase to the entire continent. I couldn’t be happier for Dickey’s as well as the man who started this with me, Abdelrahman Toama,” says Jim Perkins, Executive Vice President of International Sales and Support at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit sells slow smoked beef brisket, beef sausage, smoked turkey, and savory sides.
“Since my family opened the first Dickey’s in 1941, we’ve made it our mission to serve as many guests as possible the very best barbecue out there,” says Roland Dickey. Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Capital Group. “We are happy to partner with the Swinder Group and welcome them into the Dickey’s Family.”
