SoCal Dickey's Franchisee Adds Two Stores

    Industry News | January 21, 2021

    Southern California Dickey’s Owner Operator Lonnie Fryar inked a deal this week to bring two more of the 80-year-old barbecue franchises to the outskirts of Los Angeles, California.

    The Owner Operator of the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit restaurant in Long Beach, CA on 421 W Broadway Rd. plans to open two other nearby locations with one slated for Rancho Cucamonga, CA, and the other set for Lakewood, CA.

    “While California has seen capacity mandates shift forwards and backwards over the last 9 months, the ability to remain open with online ordering, delivery, curbside, to-go, and pick-up have been critical to the success of my business,” says Lonnie Fryar. “We’re excited to expand using the momentum of our first store’s success to develop additional units here in southern California and bring more folks our Legit. Texas. Barbecue.”

    “Throughout this year, we’ve seen a strong uptick in existing franchisees expanding with us to develop additional units for both non-traditional and traditional models,” adds Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We look forward to seeing Lonnie replicate the success of his first location at his new stores on the west coast.”

    Dickey’s offers competition-quality barbecue and an array of savory southern sides in a fast-casual dining experience. The award-winning barbecue franchise smokes their meats on-site over a wood-burning pit and serves family-secret recipes passed down for three generations.
