Vet to Expand Dickeys Florida Footprint

Florida continues to be a hot market for Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, as a new development agreement has been signed for three stores, according to a company press release. Owner/Operator Tim Hershberger has already opened one in Pensacola, with plans to open another in the same city and a third slated to open in Fort Walton Beach.

When both stores open in 2016, they will cater heavily to military personnel living on and around the local bases, said Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants. A retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, Hershberger has close ties to both the Navy base in Pensacola and the Air Force base in Fort Walton Beach.
