Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is a family-owned chain based in Dallas, Texas. Dickey’s is one of the quickest-growing “fast casual” brands in the industry, with over 500 restaurants in 44 states. Now, they want to make sure that even more people can enjoy their delicious southern cooking.
They’ve reached a partnership with Tyson Foods, one of the top meat processors and distributors in the world, to begin packaging their spareribs into convenient, oven-able bags and selling them in retail stores. They will initially have three flavors (Original Secret Recipe, Signature Sweet, Sizzling Spice) and they will be sold at their first retail partner, Super Valu. If their food flies off the shelves the way it sells in-store, they will have a lot of success with this model and will surely be able to expand even more.
About Dickey’s BBQ
Travis Dickey founded Dickey’s BBQ in 1941, and Dickey’s Franchise Guarantee became an instant hit that has seen tremendous growth over the past 80 years. They began franchising in 1994, and that has led to huge expansion and new locations all over the country.
Dickey’s BBQ Franchise began to receive tons of mainstream recognition in the 2010’s, such as making it onto several of Fast Casual’s “Top 100 Movers and Shakers” lists, including placing first in 2016. Additionally, Laura Rea Dickey, who took over as the CEO in 2017, was named one of the 50 most influential women in food service in 2020 by Nation’s Restaurant News.
In 2018, they opened their first international restaurant in Abu Dhabi, and earlier in 2021 they began opening locations in Japan and Singapore. Follow this page on Instagram, for additional information.
An article entitled “How Much Does It Cost (w/ Fees) to Open a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in 2021?”, discusses how easy and affordable it is to own a Dickey’s BBQ Pit. The financial barrier to entry for this food franchise is much lower than other concepts like McDonald’s where you’ll need at least $500,000 in liquid capital to be considered.
