Dickey’s franchise owners Peggy and Joe Anicka have enjoyed serving the Commerce Township, Michigan, community slow, pit-smoked barbecue.

On Friday, January 25, Dickey's will be offering $1 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in honor of its grand-opening celebration.

“There are so many wonderful people in this community, and we couldn't think of a better place to own a business,” says local owner Peggy Anicka. “Our kids grew up here, and we’ve spent the last 10 years volunteering in their schools and on their sports teams.”

Joe Anicka, who served as park officer for the State of Michigan, has also worked for 25 years in restaurants. Peggy Anicka has 15 years of restaurant experience and also spends her time giving back to the community through volunteer work.

Kim Smart, the general manager for this location, also brings 25 years of restaurant experience to the team.

“At our grand-opening event, we will be drawing for a prize of free barbecue for a year,” Peggy Anicka says. “We’ll choose three lucky winners, so come join the party and satisfy your barbecue craving.”
