Barbecue Lovers Bring Dickey's to Marble FallsLocal entrepreneurs, Allen and Michele Kent, bring Dickey’s slow-smoked barbecue to Marble Falls. The couple plans to bring three Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations to the area in the coming years. The second and third locations will open in Coppers Cove and Lampasas.

Originally from Lampasas, the Kents are thrilled to bring Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to the areas surrounding their hometown.

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has and always will be a family-run, family-oriented business and that is something we pride ourselves on,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Having new franchisees eager to open multiple locations as a family is a testament not only to the success of our business but the brand as a whole.”

New to the restaurant industry, both Allen and Michele look forward to embarking on this venture with the Dickey’s brand supporting them along the way.

“We have always loved Dickey’s delicious barbecue and the feel of the store,” says Michele. “We are excited to open our own locations and serve the residents of our communities Dickey’s Texas-style barbecue.”
