Dickey’s Barbeque expands in North Carolina
April 4, 2012 by James
Dickey’s Barbeque Pit, the world’s largest chain of barbeque restaurants, is opening a new store in Sanford, North Carolina in the Raleigh area on Thursday, April 5th. Dickey’s Barbeque Restaurants, Inc. is no doubt using printing services to announce to the public this grand opening and that the first 100 customers will receive a pulled pork barbeque sandwich for free.
According to the president of the company, Roland Dickey, Jr., the chain arrived in North Carolina in 2007 and is planning to build additional stores in Raleigh, Hickory and Sanford in 2012, in order to bring great tasting barbeque food to the area. The company plans to add 100 new locations across the United States in 2012, which adds jobs for construction companies, brokers, landlords, and the city itself in each area it builds.
Gregory Woloszczuk, Dickey’s Area Developer and Owner, takes great pride in the positive reviews from customers. According to Woloszczuk, the company uses lean and fresh meats and what is known as “naked barbeque”, a term his wife developed that refers to the meat being served without sauce on it. This enables the true flavors of the hickory smoked pulled pork to be fully enjoyed.
The first Dickey’s Barbeque Pit was opened in 1941 by Travis Dickey in Dallas, Texas. The business was taken over by his sons, Roland and T.D. Dickey, Jr., in 1967 who expanded the business throughout North Texas and has now become a mainstay of many of the southern states. The company prides itself on using quality, hickory-smoked meats that feature home-style flavor in an atmosphere that is family-friendly. In addition to pulled pork, the menu features beef brisket, polish sausage, chicken, turkey breast, and ham.
