Three guests will win free barbecue for a year at the new location! Guests can enter to win one of three ways: use hashtag #1FreeYearofBBQ, order online or sign up for the Big Yellow Cup Club. Winners will be announced Monday.

“Dickey’s continues its rapid growth throughout California, with four new locations opening in the state this month,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We are proud to serve authentic, Texas-style barbecue in the Golden State.”

The new Dickey’s is owned and operated by two couples who have been friends for 26 years. Rich and Debbie Breedwell and John and Sharon Sanchez have lived in Vacaville for most of their lives, and decided to open their third store in Petaluma because of the great location and their mutual love of barbecue. “Dickey’s is authentic Texas barbecue at a great price, which appealed to us early on,” says co-owner Debbie Breedwell. “The unique customer focus and family-friendly atmosphere all helped us decide that Dickey’s Barbecue Pit was the right fit for us. We are excited to open our third store in the great community of Petaluma.”

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Petaluma is located at: 417 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma, CA 94954. The phone number is 707-744-4499. Find Dickey’s on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
