Dickey’s Barbecue Is Beefing Up Its Presence in Pennsylvania

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has big plans for Pennsylvania. The fastest growing and largest barbecue franchise currently has locations in Bethlehem and Wescosville. In addition, the franchise has tapped industry veteran, Meg Heintzelman as Area Developer to develop sites in Norristown, Limerick, and Chester Springs.

“Dickey’s Barbecue is ready to turn up the heat in Pennsylvania,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We’ve seen so much interest and there are many great sites available for potential franchise owners.”

Dickey’s Barbecue added over 67 stores last year and is planning to add 100 new locations nationwide in 2012. With every new restaurant, the company creates additional jobs for landlords, brokers, construction companies, and of course the city itself. This is great news for the state of Pennsylvania.

“We serve slow smoked, quality BBQ in a fast, casual atmosphere and we also cater special events,” said Meg Heintzelman, Dickey’s Area Developer. “It’s an exciting time to be part of this fast growing company.”

Since 1941, the world’s largest barbecue franchise has offered free kids meals every Sunday and affordable family packs designed to bring the whole family together for dinner. Family packs come with a choice of two meats, three medium sides, six rolls and Dickey’s famous barbecue sauce.

Founded in 1941, Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants began in Dallas, Texas. More than 70 years later, Dickey’s is now the world’s largest barbecue chain. Currently, Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants is located in 43 states and over 240 locations nationwide.
