Local Entrepreneurs Bring Dickey’s Texas-style Barbecue to Lebanon, TN

(Lebanon, TN) Local Lebanon couple brings Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to their community this Thursday, October 5 with four weeks of specials and giveaways, including free barbecue for a year for three lucky guests. This will be Ron and Tricia Burkett’s first Dickey’s location with hopes of opening more in the future.

 

“We are thrilled to have Ron and Tricia Burkett join the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit family,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, Inc. “With franchisees like the Burketts, who are passionate about the art of great barbecue, the Dickey’s brand will continue to be successful and grow.”

As new restauranteurs, the Burketts saw great value in the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit brand, especially after moving from Frisco, TX where Dickey’s is a household name. Upon moving to Lebanon, the couple decided it was time to open a restaurant of their own and found a home in Dickey’s. “For the last 10 years I have traveled for my job and saw new Dickey’s locations pop up with lines out the door,” says Ron Burkett. “When it came time to make a career change and stop traveling, we knew that opening our own Dickey’s was the right choice for us. We cannot wait to serve the members of our Lebanon community.”

 

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Lebanon is located at 115 S. Hartmann Dr. Lebanon, TN 37087. The phone number is 615-549-0033.
