Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is Heating Up Utah With Double Celebrations

(Salt Lake City, Utah) Dickey’s Barbecue, the largest barbecue chain in the country, is throwing two hot parties in Utah to celebrate the grand openings of its restaurants in Draper and South Jordan.  Dickey’s Barbecue Pit operates eleven Utah locations, is planning to add at least eight more restaurants in the state by the end of the year. “We've had remarkable growth in Utah,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Utah has embraced our authentic and unique barbecue concept and is ready for more!” On Thursday, October 4, Dickey’s in Draper, located at 163 East, 13800 S and Bangerter Hwy E-6, near Harmon's Grocery will be offering $1 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The second event is on Friday, October 5 at the Dickey’s in South Jordan, located at 689 W South Jordan Parkway.  They will be running the same promotion of $1 Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwiches from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. “There aren’t many things you can get for a dollar anymore,” said John Thomson, multi-unit owner with locations across Utah and Dickey’s Area Developer for the state of Utah. “We’re offering an amazing deal at these events to celebrate with the local communities.  Our Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwich is piled high with our signature slow smoked pulled pork and for only a dollar it’s a real steal.”  Since 1941, the world’s largest barbecue franchise has offered free kids meals every Sunday and affordable family packs designed to bring the whole family together for dinner. Family packs come with a choice of two meats, three medium sides, six rolls and Dickey’s famous barbecue sauce
