California (RestaurantNews.com) Dickey’s Barbecue Pit founder Roland Dickey, Sr. aka Mr. Dickey, Chief Executive Officer Laura Rea Dickey and Dean of Barbecue University Chris Kelley travel to southern California area for local guest appreciation events this June.
On June 11th in Tustin, June 12th in Brea and June 20th in La Quinta, members of the Dickey family will be signing Mr. Dickey Cookbooks and giving them away to the first 50 guests in-store that day. In addition, the participating locations will offer $2 Pulled Pork Classic Sandwiches as a thank to the community for choosing Dickey’s as their go-to place for Texas-style barbecue.
“Our guests are an extension of our family and have supported us since 1941,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “We’re honored to share our appreciation to the communities that have hosted us for over 70 years.”
As an additional thank you to those who serve and protect their community, first responders in uniform will receive a discounted meal.
Dickey’s opened as a barbecue stand in Dallas, TX in 1941 and has grown to a franchise system with more than 500 locations. Each Dickey’s Barbecue Pit restaurant still slow-smokes their meat on-site every day using the same technique passed down through generations.
