Cincinnati Restauranteur To Grow Portfolio And Bring Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to Norwood, OH

CINCINNATI (Feb. X, 2020) – Ohio-based restaurateur and owner of the Harder Restaurant Group Patrick Harder is set to open his third Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location in the up-and-coming Cincinnati, OH suburb of Norwood.


The third installment of Harder’s Dickey’s franchise locations is coming soon to the retail facility known as Surrey Square later this spring and the nearly 2,500 square feet location will feature a sizeable indoor seating area outfitted with TVs for guests to enjoy while dining.


“It certainly hasn’t been an easy year for restaurants, but our barbecue fans have spoken and they love Dickey’s Barbecue,” said Patrick Harder Owner of Harder Restaurants Group. “We look forward to bringing the local community more of our famous barbecue very soon.”


In 2014, Harder opened his first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location in Amelia Village situated in Clermont County outside of Cincinnati and Last December, Harder opened his Fairfield Dickey’s location equipped with a drive-thru to service guests on the go.


“Our Fairfield and Amelia locations have remained successful through these challenging times with online ordering, delivery and to-go, and our new Norwood location will offer the same conveniences to offer guests a seamless experience no matter how they choose to dine with us,” said Harder.


The award-winning barbecue restaurant’s menu consists of authentic, slow-smoked Texas-style barbecue offerings such as hickory-smoked brisket, fall-off-the-bone ribs and more along with an array of savory sides and delectable desserts. Dickey’s smokes all their meats on-site over a wood-burning pit and their competition-quality spread is also available for catering.
