PARTNERSHIP CHARACTERISTICS

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit places a high-level of importance and decision on our potential partner. We value a partner with loyalty, transparency, accuracy in communication, timeliness, organization, directness and curiosity.


Through a healthy partnership, Dickey’s provides the expert barbecue knowledge and our partner provides the mindset and responsibility for the target country socio economics, culture and food taste. It is with this mix of responsibilities that we are able to lean into the strengths of each partner.


Dickey’s preferred partner will have multi-unit food and beverage or retail experience with an existing infrastructure or the willingness to create the infrastructure to manage the development agreement. Working with a non-competitive food & beverage brand will be considered, but not necessary.


Dickey’s requires a net worth of US$400,000 for each international location to be built. Additional cash assets will be required for store construction, operation cost, and other associated cost.
