Albuquerque Business First featured the new Albuquerque location, here.
After a successful first run in Albuquerque, Dickey's Barbecue Pit is expanding in the Duke City with a second location.
Located at 1410 Wyoming Blvd. NE, the new location opened Thursday.
The chain's first location, 4320 The 25 Way NE, opened in 2014. Dickey’s first opened in Albuquerque in 2000 and had a nine-year run at 4811 Pan American Freeway NE near Montaño.
This will be owner Deepak Shah's second Dickey's restaurant. He owns the location in Hobbs.
Originally from India, Shah previously was CFO of Southwest Cheese Co. in Clovis.
“Albuquerque was in need of a delicious option for Texas-style barbecue,” Shah said in a statement. “As a Texas neighbor we did not have many barbecue options, and I am happy that I able to provide delicious barbecue to my community.”
Dickey's initial franchise fee is $15,000 with a total investment ranging from $280,819 to $481,819, according to the company's website.
Dickey’s has more than 560 stores in 43 states, including locations in Hobbs and Farmington. Maurine Dickey, a vice president at Dickey's, is an Albuquerque native.
