Dickey’s Barbecue, Texas Pete Partner for New Menu Items

Dickey’s Barbecue is adding some heat to its menu thanks to a new partnership with Texas Pete Hot Sauce. In 2014, the barbecue chain will team up with the hot sauce brand for new menu items.

“We’re excited about our partnership with Texas Pete,” says Roland Dickey Jr, president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “We’ve developed exciting new menu items along with the Texas Pete culinary team that bring together the best of our slow-smoked barbecue along with their bold, fiery flavor.”

Texas Pete is owned by TW Garner Food Company. Founded in 1929 as a maker of barbecue sauce, the company now sells a full line of hot sauces, wing sauces, and seafood sauces under the Texas Pete brand.

"Dickey's Barbecue is one of the fastest growing chains in America, so we are overjoyed at the opportunity to share the bold, balanced flavor of Texas Pete Hot Sauce products with Dickey's customers," says Michael O'Donnell, corporate executive chef and national accounts manager for TW Garner Food Company.
