Dickey's is opening two new units in southern Texas, in New Braunfels and San Marcos. The New Braunfels location opens this fall, followed by the San Marcos opening next year.
"Dickey's Barbecue Pit is continually expanding throughout our home state," said CEO Roland Dickey Jr., in a news release. "We are proud to increase our presence in south Texas with these two new stores."
The new franchisee, Kenneth Elliott, has prior experience as a manager in the oil and gas industry and said he has been a lifelong fan of the brand.
"When I moved to south Texas I realized there was a need for Dickey's on the I-35 corridor between San Antonio and Austin. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Dickey's quality barbecue to New Braunfels and San Marcos," he said in the news release.
