Dallas, TX -- Roland Dickey’s goal has always been world barbecue domination. Today, the nation’s largest barbecue franchise is one step closer to that goal by officially opening their 400th restaurant. The 400th Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened in Phoenix, Arizona and the Dallas-based company now slow-smokin’ in 40 states across the country.
“Our goal has always been to share slow smoked Texas barbecue on a national scale,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We still hand rub and slow smoke all meats just like my grandfather did in the first location in 1941, just on a larger scale. Our team is dedicated to quality and energized for continued growth " we will be at 500 locations by the first of 2015.”
