The Albuquerque location will be Deepak Shah’s second Dickey’s store in New Mexico, making him an expert in serving delicious, slow-smoked barbecue. Originally from India, Shah has made New Mexico his home and is now dedicated to bringing his community authentic, Texas-style barbecue. Before opening his first Dickey’s location in 2014, Shah was CFO of Southwest Cheese Co. in Clovis, New Mexico. After seven years in that role, Shah decided it was time to start a business of his own and chose Dickey’s because of its award-winning franchise program.


“Albuquerque was in need of a delicious option for Texas-style barbecue,” says Shah. “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.”

 

Residents of Albuquerque can find their newest Dickey’s at 1410 Wyoming Blvd NE Albuquerque, NM 87112. The phone number is 505-750-3331.
