Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Offers Special Franchise Deal to First Responders

(Dallas, TX)—In celebration of National Police Week, the nation’s largest barbecue chain announces a special opportunity for all first responders to join Dickey’s Barbecue Pit by offering a franchise fee discount. In collaboration with Dickey’s charitable organization, Barbecue, Boots & Badges, all first responders nationwide are offered $5000 off the initial Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchise fee, a discount of 33%.

 

“We have a strong connection to first responders through Dickey’s charitable foundation, Barbecue, Boots & Badges, which focuses on serving those who protect us through local efforts,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “At Dickey’s, we strive to partner with franchisees who are dedicated, contributing members of their local communities, such as these men and women. Now, during National Police Week, is an ideal time to launch this opportunity for these important community members to join the Dickey’s family.”

 

Similar to Dickey’s franchise discount for military, this opportunity applies to law enforcement, firefighters and EMT. Dickey’s recent involvement with first responders also includes the launch of Barbecue, Boots and Badges’ ‘Invest in a Vest’ initiative, which aims to reduce risk for police officers by providing life-saving bullet proof vests and included a kickoff donation of ballistic plates to Dallas Police Department’s entire gang unit.  In addition, Dickey’s has a longstanding offer of 50% off for first responders that dine in at select locations.
