Brandon Kosek knows a little about Nebraska –he attended the University of Nebraska and grew up in Seward. When Kosek tasted Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, he knew it would be a hit in Bellevue and on Thursday, July 17 at 11 a.m., Kosek will open his first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. The new location kicks off with a three-day grand opening celebration where the first 50 dine-in guests receive gift cards worth up to $50.

“Nebraska is a great market for barbecue and in Bellevue we don’t have many options, which is a shame because everyone here loves barbecue,” said first time franchise owner, Brandon Kosek. “I’m especially excited about Bellevue being close to the Offutt Air Force Base and look forward to serving our armed forces some great barbecue.”

Also, one lucky winner will be chosen for a $500 gift card and three winners will receive free barbecue for an entire year.

Prior to opening his first restaurant, Kosek supervised three McDonald’s restaurants. Kosek plans to open at least four more Dickey’s Barbecue locations across Nebraska and Iowa in the coming years.

Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 73 years later, the Dallas-based family-run barbecue franchise still offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids meals every Sunday. All meats are slow smoked onsite in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 400 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world’s largest barbecue franchise. This year Technomic named Dickey’s “Fastest-growing restaurant in the country” and they were also named “Best Franchise Deal” by QSR Magazine.
