Kansas City Chiefs fans who love great barbecue and ribs are in for a real treat this season at Arrowhead Stadium. Multi-unit franchisee Ryan Wenrich has opened a Dickey's Barbecue Pit location in the concession area at the home field of his own favorite NFL team. He says when he was offered the concession stand space he simply could not pass on the opportunity. His first concession location opened during preseason and a second location is scheduled to open soon.
"We are excited to have this opportunity at Arrowhead Stadium," says Wenrich, who also operates 6 traditional Dickey's locations. "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 Dickey's brand has been ramping up expansion recently and has grown to nearly 600 locations in 44 states.
"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," says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "It is ideas such as these, that will continue Dickey's growth now and in the future."
