Overview

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a true American success story serving Legit.Texas.Barbecue across the world. In 1941, Travis Dickey opened the first location in Dallas, Texas. Soon enough, our barbecue was everyone’s favorite and the brand built a loyal following within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. By 1994, Dickey’s expanded nationwide with its first franchise locations. Today, we have evolved into a global brand with more than 500 stores.

“Dickey’s is the perfect franchise opportunity for people looking to change careers because we offer such an immersive training program and continuous home office support,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We welcome people from all industries who bring their talent and experience to our brand.”
