Hey What’s Cooking at Dickey’s? Real Meat



Dickey’s Barbecue has always been on the real meat bandwagon. In fact, for the last 70 years the Largest Barbecue Chain has only ever served 100% fresh meats.

“We track our beef from the field to the table,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc.  “We believe our customers deserve only the freshest, healthiest meats for their families – nothing hidden.”

Over the last few weeks, there has been controversy in the wake of the revelation that other fast food companies are serving up the ground beef additive known as “pink slime.” Pink slime is a cheap meat filler made from scraps and low grade trimmings. This alternative meat product only cuts the price of beef by about three cents a pound.

“We want to make sure our customers know that we only serve the real thing” said Jeff Forrester, former executive chef and now Director of Purchasing for Dickey’s. “We pride ourselves on being the best and only serving the best.”

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. Beginning with an aggressive growth strategy and proven business model, and since implementing its proprietary five revenue streams for business growth, Dickey’s is on track to maintain its 61% growth rate in 2012. Currently, Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants can now be found in 36 states and over 200 locations nationwide.
