Dickey’s Barbecue Rolls Out a Smokin’ Franchisee Benefits Program

Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants announces the roll out of a new benefits package for franchise owners that will enhance their businesses.

“One of the advantages of being part of the Dickey’s family is that we are always looking out for our franchisees,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants.  “Our new group benefit package was specifically crafted with our business model in mind as a value-add for our franchise owners.”

Dickey’s Franchise Benefits Programs is a tiered system that will work for any budget. The program gives franchise owners, their families and their employees, group purchasing power for their medical benefits.  Benefits include a full line up of medical services, dental coverage, as well as legal and financial services.

“Some companies leave the burden of finding affordable coverage to their owner/operators,” said Lynn Little, legal compliance and risk management for Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants.  “This program eases the out of pocket expenses you typically get with small business insurance coverage — it gives our franchise owners a way to keep operating costs low and is a great incentive for their employees.”
