Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Dickey's Barbecue Opens Doors to 400th Location

The 400th Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened in Phoenix, Arizona, and the Dallas-based company now slow-smokin’ in 40 states across the country.

“Our goal has always been to share slow smoked Texas barbecue on a national scale,” says Roland Dickey Jr., president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “We still hand rub and slow smoke all meats just like my grandfather did in the first location in 1941, just on a larger scale. Our team is dedicated to quality and energized for continued growth—we will be at 500 locations by the first of 2015.”
