Donations were made to Wayside Soup Kitchen in Portland, Maine, San Antonio Food Bank, Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, Wiregrass Area United Way Food Bank in Dothan, Alabama , Bishop Sullivan Center in Kansas City, Missouri, Good Shepherd Food Bank and Western Eagle Foundation in Temecula, California to name a few.
Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by Travis Dickey with the goal of authentic slow smoked barbecue. More than 71 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 Technomic named Dickey’s “Fastest-growing restaurant in the country” and they were also named “Best Franchise Deal” by QSR Magazine.
