Real Talk with Real Owners: Thomas Iverson of Davis and Yuba City, CA
Owner/Operator Thomas Iverson is truly a jack-of-alltrades
who enjoys devoting his skill and passion to his
two Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations in California. Prior
to owning a Dickeys, Thomas explored many career
paths as a phlebotomist, research scientist and genetic
researcher. He also went to dental school and still owns
an active orthodontic practice with a Dickey’s located
While in dental school, Thomas enjoyed visiting his local
Dickey’s regularly but had not given store ownership a
second thought. After working as an established
orthodontist, he learned about Dickey’s franchise
opportunity and jumped at the chance!
Two years and two stores later, Thomas enjoys serving
his favorite foods to all his loyal guests. He also relies
on catering to spread the word about his delicious
slow-smoked barbecue. “My brand ambassador and I use many of the great marketing strategies
provided by the home office,” he says. “Since day one we have focused on catering and building a loyal
guest base, and we couldn’t have done it without them.”
Thomas may be a jack-of-all-trades, but he is definitely a master of the art of great barbecue!
