Navy Veteran Opens New Dickey's BBQ in Washington
Navy Veteran and professor, T.L. Driver, will open his second Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location on Thursday, June 11 at 11 a.m. in Poulsbo, Washington. Driver opened his first location in Port Orchard last summer. To celebrate, he’s hosting a three-day grand opening in Poulsbo, where the first 50 guests will receive gift cards ranging from $5 to $50.
“Dickey’s Barbecue has taken off in Washington state,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “Veterans are an integral part of our brand and we’re lucky to have Doc and his team expanding our brand in Kitsap County.”
On Friday, June 12, guests can receive free t-shirts, koozies, sunglasses, and more with all-day merchandise giveaways. On Saturday, June 13, radio station 94.1 KMPS will be onsite from noon to 2 p.m., and the new location is serving up $2 pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. During the event, one winner will be chosen for a $500 gift card and three winners will receive free barbecue for an entire year.
“Being in the barbecue business is exciting and we’re looking forward to celebrating our new store,” Driver says. “Dickey’s Barbecue has been extremely well-received here in Washington and everyone is looking forward to having a Poulsbo location.”
