Why Dickey’s is The Franchise of Choice?

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 Treat You Like Family

As a family-owned business, we know how to take care of our own. When you sign on, you’ll receive continuous support in all areas of your business, from site construction to marketing and beyond.


Attend Barbecue University

We provide a combination of in-depth classroom style and hands-on training affectionately known as Barbecue University. By the time you’re done, you’re going to feel like you got a master’s in barbecue!


Old Recipes, New Tech

While we love our classic recipes, we’re not afraid to try new things. Innovative technology like our proprietary ordering system and KPI-tracking Smoke Stack 2.0 streamline business operations.


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.

Account Balance

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.


Big Flavors in a Small Footprint

Each location is outfitted with a hickory wood-burning pit, open kitchen, and family-friendly dining room nestled into economically-sized spaces of approximately 1,500 sq ft.
