Consider yourself vetted

“Our veterans provide a tremendous service to our country and Dickey’s is honored to help make the dream of owning their own restaurant business a reality,” said Roland Dickey Jr., President of Dickey’s Capital Group. “My grandfather, Travis Dickey Sr. opened our first barbecue restaurant in 1941 after his service in World War II and we continue our commitment to veterans today”.

We find so much satisfaction in growing our business. Part of the passion is servicing the guests and keeping the brand growing. You wouldn't believe how many times guests ask us if we will open stores in their neighborhood.
