“Dickey's has expanded exponentially throughout California, and the Golden State has the most Dickey's locations following Texas,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We congratulate Michael and Margarita Tucker on their grand opening.
Originally from Brawley, Calif., Michael Tucker began his career as a jeweler. Having owned two jewelry stores, Tucker became a franchisee of another concept over 15 years ago. Michael and Margarita Tucker are long-time entrepreneurs, and when they tasted Dickey's brand of hickory-smoked barbecue, they knew they had found their next venture.
“The food at Dickey's is fantastic, and the overall home office support is unbeatable,” Michael Tucker says. “I have been a business owner all my life, but I am especially excited to join the Dickey's team.”
