Existing franchisee to expand portfolio by two new Dickey’s locations
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit announces a new development agreement for two new stores located in North Texas and West Nebraska. The first store will open by the end of 2016 in Mabank, Texas.
“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is proud to have so many existing Owner/Operators becoming multi-unit franchisees,” says Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. “Owner/Operator Guy New already has a successful store in Texas, and we congratulate him on his agreement for two more locations.”
A fifth-generation Texan, Guy New is an entrepreneur who has his hand in several businesses. He has owned an information technology consulting company for the past 20 years and is also a real estate investor. He decided to begin franchising with Dickey’s in 2011 and has successfully operated his first location in Rowlett, just east of Dallas, for the past five years. He will open his second store in Mabank, Texas by the end of 2016 and the third in Gering/Scottsbluff, Nebraska within a year. “I’m excited about opening two more franchises with the biggest barbecue chain in the world because the communities are excited to welcome us,” New says. “Engaging with our community is the best part of owning a Dickey’s, and we look forward to expanding in these new locations.”
