Dickey’s Debuts Three New Ghost Kitchens On East, Central and West Coasts

In a matter of seven days the world’s largest barbecue concept unveils three new ghost kitchen locations across the U.S.

DALLAS (DEC. 23, 2020) – Dallas-based barbecue franchise Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened three new ghost kitchen models earlier this week in Chicago, IL, Orlando, FL and Oakland, CA.

Barbecue fans in the surrounding five-to-ten-mile radius will be able to get their Dickey’s fix by ordering delivery directly to their doorstep through or the Dickey’s app.

Dickey’s ghost kitchen model, which they unveiled earlier this year, services guests solely through online ordering and third-party delivery and is quickly becoming the barbecue brand’s fastest growing model.

“Despite the toll this pandemic has taken on the restaurant industry, fast-casual franchise concepts like Dickey’s are proving to have a competitive edge and I attribute part of that to our niche’s ability to adapt models based on ever-changing consumer behavior,”  said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Delivery certainly isn’t going anywhere and we have both our digital sales and ghost kitchen developments to show for that.”


In addition, earlier this month the barbecue behemoth announced their latest international endeavor would include opening two ghost kitchens in the metropolis of Tokyo around spring and fall 2021, respectively.
