Industry: Retail Barbecue Restaurant
Overview of Brand: Dickey’s Barbecue Pit prides itself on authenticity, innovation and barbecue sauce, one story at a time. With roots in Dallas, Travis Dickey set out to perfect Texas-style barbecue. In 1941, he opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Dallas. Franchising began in 1994 to overwhelming success, maintaining quality and consistency while carefully pursuing growth. Today, each location smokes its own meats on-site the same way it was done in 1941, serving beef brisket, pulled pork, ham, polish sausage, turkey breast and chicken, with an extensive array of home-style sides.
