After its humble beginnings in Texas, the family run business decided to go down the franchising route seeing the demand for real barbecue and put all of its focus on expanding close to home during the early phase of franchising. From then on, their business took off in a big way making their brand widely popular and there was no looking back.
Currently the largest barbecue chain in the United States with over 500 locations in 44 states and counting, their bbq movement continues to this day.
A success of this epic proportion would not have been possible had they not decided to expand their business by involving more operators and franchises to work with. The people at Dickey’s saw a huge opportunity in bringing real barbecue to underserved communities and seized on it by finding the right operators and the right franchisees to partner with in those locations. They looked at it as a legitimate chance to give people opportunities to own and operate a franchise of a successful brand and to be a part of the success story they were working on building.
After Roland Dickey Jr and Laura Rea Dickey got on board, they have pushed the envelope and taken great measures to diversify their base. Under their able guidance, the successful family-owned bbq franchise has now set its sights on new locations in the international scene in an attempt to replicate its success in a different part of the world. As owners, the husband and wife duo take great pride in being able to help local Dickey’s owners serve a delicious, affordable barbecue option to their community, and to extend support and assistance to new pit owners so they can do well themselves and carry the Dickey’s brand forward. It’s a win-win.
All that success is attributable to the bbq culture they’ve built, and it partly boils down to the food and experience on offer here too. Meat-lovers gather here to get a taste of real hickory-smoked barbeque. Yes, the selection of meat and sides on the menu keeps the guests amused but the 14 hour hickory smoked-meat is what stands out for most. The juicy brisket looks tempting and tastes good, comes with a slight smoke halo around it which is a good indication it had been smoked well, and glistens with fatty promise. Overall, it has all the makings of the kind of brisket you’d love to make for yourself if you had a Saturday to spend for yourself in the backyard.
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is the kind of place that you find, go crazy about, and keep coming back very often. It’s because they have been serving generations of families with deliriously good, well-smoked meat with a crispy and crunchy texture on the outside and just about enough moist and tenderness on the inside. Yes, they’ve become a huge chain now but that doesn’t change one bit the kind of satisfaction you get biting into some of the best slow-smoked meats made with authentic Texas style.
