Dickey’s Barbecue Fires Up Expansion In Virginia

Dickey’s Barbecue is expanding in Virginia. The world’s largest barbecue franchise is opening its fourth location in Glen Allen later this Summer.  This will be the second location for franchise owners Terry and Lisa Henshaw.

“Virginia is a growing market for our unique concept,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “It’s so rewarding to see the Henshaws building the brand in the area.”

The new Glen Allen location is will be opening at 9809 West Broad Street.

“The up and coming Glen Allen area is the perfect spot for our new store,” said franchise owner, Lisa Henshaw.  “The response in Richmond has been so good – our customers say it’s their new favorite place. We hope our second store gets the same reaction.”

The Henshaws are planning to open three more locations after the Glen Allen store. Dickey’s Barbecue is planning to add over 100 new locations nationwide in 2012.  As part of this growth strategy the company seeks community leaders and local business owners who have the passion and experience to own a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.
