Game On! Dickey’s Barbecue Expands In Minnesota

Lip smackin’ foot stompin’ barbecue is heading to Marshall. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, the world’s largest barbecue franchise, settles in at its new location.”Dickey’s is a new concept for the Marshall area, but I think it will be a successful and exciting opportunity,” said franchise owner Dr. Anthony Nwakama. “We’ve received a very positive reception from everyone we talk to in Marshall and people are eager for us to be open.”

This new location is located at 900 Clarice Ave. and the store phone number is 507-401-2142. According to Dr. Nwakama he hopes to open this location in mid-July.

“We love the fact that Dickey’s offers a family-friendly atmosphere and free ice cream,” said Dr. Nwakama. “Nothing could be better than mouthwatering barbecue and family fun.”

Dickey’s Barbecue added over 66 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 Minnesota.

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 230 locations nationwide.
