Sheboygan Says Howdy to New Dickey's Barbecue Pit

On Thursday, August 29 at 11 a.m. the new Dickey’s in Sheboygan will open its doors and the first 50 dine-in customers who purchase an item on that day will receive a Dickey’s gift card fully loaded with up to $50.

“I have always been passionate about barbecue,” said local franchise owner Kevin Shank, who owns this location along with his wife Laura. “Over the years, I’ve been searching for a strong barbecue franchise that could provide quality food and training support – Dickey’s is the perfect fit.”

On Friday, customers will enjoy a day of giveaways. The party continues on Saturday with $2 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches from noon to 2 p.m. and a guest appearance by Sheboygan’s Country B93. There will also be a drawing for a $500 gift card good at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.

“Sheboygan is a great market for barbecue because there is nothing like it here,” said Shank. “Since we started building the restaurant, countless people who know real barbecue have commented that this is what Sheboygan really needs.”

The new location is at 2719 Calumet Drive at the corner of Calumet and North Avenue. The store phone number is 920.783.6789. For all of the details of the 3-day opening celebration visit the local Facebook page.

Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 72 years later, the Dallas-based family run barbecue franchise still offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides, tangy barbecue sauce and free kids meals every Sunday. All meats are slow smoked on site in each restaurant. The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 300 locations in 40 states and holds the title of the world’s largest barbecue franchise. This year both Technomic and Nation’s Restaurant News named Dickey’s “Fastest-growing restaurant in the country” and they were also named “Best Franchise Deal” by QSR Magazine.
