Kansas City Chiefs fans Sunday not only celebrated opening day with a win against the Philadelphia Eagles at Arrowhead Stadium, they also got their share of barbecue from Dickey's Barbecue Pit.
"We are excited to have this opportunity at Arrowhead Stadium," franchisee Ryan Wenrich, said in a company press release. "Nothing goes better with football than delicious barbecue and we are proud to offer this to the fans at Arrowhead stadium this season and hopefully many seasons in the future."
The concession stand offers Dickey's slow-smoked barbecue sandwiches, ribs, frito Pie and waffle fries. Wenrich said a second location will open soon inside the NFL stadium, and Pit Bosses Kip McVey and Michael Meade will run both units.
"At Dickey's Barbecue Pit, we are proud to have franchisees like Ryan Wenrich, that take Dickey's Barbecue Pit to a new level by being innovative in location selection and embracing serving our traditional barbecue in a new way," said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants in the release. "It is ideas such as these, that will continue Dickey's growth now and in the future."
