North Dallas Welcomes New Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

North Dallas Welcomes New Dickey's Barbecue PitDickey’s Barbecue Pit, the largest quick-serve barbecue chain in the country, continues to grow as the initial plans begin to open a location in north Dallas.

“Dickey’s impressed me. I like Dickey’s food, setup and atmosphere. The time seemed right for a franchise. I was sold,” said Guy New, the owner/operator for this north Dallas location.

This is the first Dickey’s Barbecue franchise opportunity for Guy, a published songwriter and fifth generation Texan.

“I love the quality of the food, the customer satisfaction level, and the catering potential,” Guy said, setting his sights on offering an extensive catering menu to the DFW area.

Texas-based Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened in 1941 and began franchising in 1994. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is well-known for their hot pit-smoked signature meats, complimentary ice cream and the big yellow cups.

“We are so thrilled Dickey’s will be expanding in DFW, where it all started. Dallas is a great community and we are very excited to have another franchise here,” President of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. Roland Dickey, Jr. said. “As our company grows, we grow as a family. This is another great opportunity for Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.”

The preparation prior to opening a Dickey’s franchise is extensive, ensuring that owner/operators are thoroughly prepared to hit the ground running.

“We have so many new owner/operators who are investing with us. With this economy, we are glad people trust us for success and we certainly don’t take that for granted. Their victory is our victory and we don’t plan on going anywhere but up,” Dickey said.

The original Dallas location is still open for business and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.

There are 147 locations in 33 states.

Even today, Dickey’s still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
