Dickey's Barbecue Pit is Moving to Valparaiso

Rajesh and Purabi Chowdhery recently signed a franchise agreement with Dickey's Barbecue and are now looking for the right location in Valparaiso.

"We looked at a lot of other places and they all seemed to be the same—very costly and basic fast food," Purabi Chowdhery says. 

"Dickey's is different! Barbecue is a favorite American food and there isn't much competition out there right now."

Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941. Dickey's began franchising in 1994 and has continued to grow across the country. Dickey's currently has more than 200 locations in 36 states nationwide.

"We are excited to be bringing barbecue to Valparaiso," says Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc.

"I can't wait for Rajesh and Purabi to find a place and begin construction."

Dickey's Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are slow smoked on-site in each restaurant. For more information, including a full menu, other restaurant locations and franchising opportunities, please visit www.dickeys.com.

Founded in 1941, Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants began in Dallas, Texas.  Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants can now be found in 36 states and more than 200 locations nationwide.
