Dickey's Barbecue Pit announced today that as part of a strategic growth plan, it is seeking to expand in communities throughout Washington, Georgia, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Indiana. The world's largest barbecue franchise is actively looking for qualified franchisee candidates to grow the brand within these five states.

"Dickey's Barbecue offers a unique, fast-casual concept for communities and an exciting business opportunity for franchise owners," says Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "As part of our continued expansion, we're searching for qualified candidates interested in developing our nationally recognized brand and making a positive contribution to their communities."

Dickey's Barbecue is planning to add more than 100 new locations nationwide in 2012. As part of this growth strategy the company seeks community leaders and local business owners who have the passion and experience to own a Dickey's Barbecue Pit. 

Dickey’s has exceptional sites in Las Vegas and Green Bay that are available immediately.

"We tailor our development approach to individuals who have an entrepreneurial spirit and are looking to become the face of the Dickey's brand in their communities," says Richard Phillips, vice president of development for Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We have a cutting-edge business model and our development team works closely with franchisees to ensure their success."

As a nationally established brand, Dickey's Barbecue offers more than 70 years of restaurant expertise and a team of experts to lead the charge. Dickey's has an extensive training program at its Barbecue University, on-going operations support, and an energized marketing and advertising program that all support the profitability of their franchisees.

Additionally, the brand offers flexible real estate concepts ranging from traditional free-standing restaurants to shopping center end caps. It also offers non-traditional venues such as airports, theme parks, convenience stores, and food courts.
