Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Opens in Heber City

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit settles in to its new location in Heber City and begins serving delicious barbecue to the surrounding community. This Saturday, December 31st marks the first day of business for this new location.

“The food quality is excellent. The ribs are tender, falling right off the bone and the smoked pulled pork is delicious. We wanted to invest in the fast casual setting, because it gives people the option, whether they are in a hurry or would like to sit down for an excellent affordable meal.  It’s great family-friendly service,” said Sky Galli, who will run the restaurant with his wife, Cindy and Tenley Finch, General Manager.

This is the first franchise opportunity for the couple, who live just over the mountain in Woodland.  Sky and his wife Cindy own and operate this new location at 595 South Main Street. The couple has taken up this new franchise venture, but also owns and operates a successful catering company in Park City for the past 10 years.  Sky has 41 years of professional cooking experience and has been a Certified Executive Chef for 33 years.  His wife Cindy has planned amazing events and catering for over 20 years.

“My grandparents were born and raised in the Heber Valley.  I spent a lot of time with them hunting, fishing, and enjoying the many outdoor activities the area offers,” said Galli. “Heber Valley is very family oriented and I couldn’t think of a better location for our Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.”

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941. Dickey’s began franchising in 1994 and has grown at an exponential rate. Dickey’s is open in 36 states and has 203 locations nationwide.

“Sky and Cindy are enthusiastic about their restaurant,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “They have a great location and a great attitude so I know that they will be a huge success in Heber City.”

Dickey’s Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are slow smoked on site in each restaurant. For more information, including a full menu, other restaurant locations and franchising opportunities, please visit www.dickeys.com.
