Delicious BBQ at Dickey's Barbecue Pit

Why Dickey’s

Own a Franchise with All the Fixins

Dickey’s started as a dream and a passion for barbecue in Travis Dickey’s kitchen in Dallas, Texas. Today, we have translated our generational love of quality competition-style barbecue into a proven business model that offers franchisees a way to own a slice of the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit legacy.

Nobody Knows Barbecue Like Us

With more than 75 years of experience cooking up the tastiest smoked meats around and over 25 years of helping franchisees reach their goals, we know our way around the barbecue business. We’ve worked hard to provide our franchisees with the benefits they value and the delicious products their customers love, all while lending a helping hand each step of the way.

We’ve been a barbecue fan favorite since 1941, and with 500 locations and more opening across the globe, we have a loyal following from the Texas Gulf to the Red Sea.

Smoke the Competition

As the largest fast-casual barbecue franchise in the world, Dickey’s is in a class all its own, but we still sweeten the deal with protected territories that further limit your competition.

Keep Money in Your Pocket

We’ve built an extensive menu relying on relatively few ingredients which lets franchisees make the most of their savory offerings while keeping costs low.
