Dickey's Plans to Add Airport Space

    Industry News | June 17, 2011

    Dickey's Barbecue Pit has laid out initial plans to bring the family-owned and operated business to airport terminals across the country.

    "The current locations in the DFW Airport allow Dickey's Barbecue Pit a platform to welcome travelers to Texas with Texas-style barbecue, and we are looking to expand these efforts," says Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants.

    "We embrace this initial interaction of welcoming travelers home on a personal level with customers coming from around the world. As our franchise expands from coast to coast, it's important for us to reach out, whether through our homestyle sides or a friendly smile."

    The support surrounding the plans for expansion in airport terminals has received national acclaim, most notably with USA Today's Road Warriors panel naming Dickey's Barbecue Pit as a favorite Airport Recommendation among the dining options in Dallas.

    "We strive to make a difference in each community through philanthropy and barbecue sauce, with the intention of expanding beyond the two local terminal locations," Dickey says. "This is our jumping-off point for expansion in airport terminals nationwide and it fits that we start in Dallas, where Dickey's began 70 years ago."
