Franchise Opportunities for Veterans



“Our veterans provide a tremendous service to our country and Dickey’s is honored to help make the dream of owning their own restaurant a reality.”

- Roland Dickey, Jr.

We’re proud to partner with U.S. military veterans and have worked to create benefits that help these valued service members go into business for themselves. Our commitment to working with military veterans began with our founder, Travis Dickey, a WWI veteran himself. Today, we’re the veteran-friendly franchise opportunity that offers incentives to help former military members invest in their own Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and transition to business ownership.

If you are a U.S. veteran, you can get up to 25% off the initial franchise fee, making it easier than ever to join the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit family. In addition, our corporate team continuously strives to provide top-notch support that helps veterans learn the ins and outs of the barbecue biz. We know our veterans have the dedication, work ethic, and passion to become successful entrepreneurs and we are honored to do what we can to help get them there.

Opening a Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Franchise, for veterans, is the perfect way to step into business ownership with a stellar American brand. Our authentic, slow-smoked Texas-style barbecue is known worldwide. We’re one of the best franchises for veterans looking to have the backing of an established, successful company.

Veterans receive support and training throughout the process, as well as the benefit of collaboration with fellow franchise owners through Dickey’s Pit Owners Association. Investing in our restaurant franchise for veterans means having multiple revenue streams — including dine-in, catering, online ordering, delivery and others. It also means being able to create jobs for others, take part in the local community, and reap the rewards of a thriving business. We have protected franchise territories, so talk to us about creating a franchise for veterans near you.

For qualified applicants only. Applicable to the first store you franchise.
