Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is continuing to spur growth across the globe with a successful franchise development performance in Q1.
Throughout the first quarter, the Texas-style barbecue brand signed 67 franchise agreements to its pipeline throughout Colorado, Florida, Texas, Washington, California, Tennessee, Arizona, Michigan, Montana and Oklahoma. Among the deals, existing franchisees in Cincinnati, Ohio and Southern California signed on to further expand their Dickey’s portfolio.
Along with executing several development deals, the family-owned franchise opened 60 new locations across 13 states in Q1. Additionally, Dickey’s celebrated the revitalization of its non-traditional franchise model when its 95th convenience store location opened in Carrollton, Texas.
“With 80 years of operation under our belt, Dickey’s continues to show why we’re the largest barbecue franchise in the world,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Capital Group. “Interest among new and existing franchisees is remaining at an all-time high because we’ve been proving that we’re an innovative brand with staying power for the past eight decades. We had an incredible development performance this quarter, and we look forward to carrying this strong momentum into the rest of 2021.”
