Dickey's Barbecue Pit has executed a new development agreement for eight stores, with six to open in Nevada and two in southern California.
Originally from Montana, Owner/Operator Doug Dubin intends his investment to be a family business, according to a company press release. His family has three generations of restaurant experience, and the fact that Dickey's is still owned and operated by its founding family was a clear selling point as Dubin looked for franchise concepts.
"We are opening a business because we want to provide career opportunities for our family and other families," Dubin said. "We chose to invest in Dickey's not only because of the reasonable franchise fees, but because of the level of support. I always know that someone at the home office will answer the phone when I call."
Dubin's entire family plans to work in the new stores. His wife, brother and three daughters will all help manage the operations, and Dubin's stores will hopefully be a future place of employment for his two young nephews as well.
Dubin will open his first two stores in Pahrump and Summerlin, Nevada in 2016. Eventually, Dubin will open six stores in the Las Vegas Valley and two in southern California.
