Dickey's Barbecue Pit makes plans to bring a delicious new dining option to Boulder, CO in Spring 2018. The new location will be opened by barbecue fanatic and Dickey's Barbecue Pit franchisee, Brandon Gerrick.
"We want to congratulate Brandon Gerrick on joining the Dickey's Barbecue Pit family," says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "With experienced, passionate franchisees such as Brandon, the Dickey's brand will continue to grow and be successful."
Originally from Chicago, Gerrick recently moved to Colorado and immediately noticed a void of delicious, Texas-style barbecue in Boulder. As he has been in the restaurant industry for 18 years, Gerrick decided it was time to open one of his own and found a home in Dickey's after researching franchising concepts.
"Dickey's is a great brand that has delicious food and a solid franchising concept, which is why I chose to make Dickey's my first business to own," says Gerrick. "Boulder was at the top of my list for where to put my first Dickey's location and when the territory was available I jumped at the opportunity. I greatly look forward to opening up our store and serving the residents of my new community."
