QSR: New Dickey's location to open in Georgia

Published: 27 Feb 2017

QSR covered the development agreement of a new Georgia location.


Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is slated to open a new location in the Peach State in spring of 2018 with Dickey’s newest owner/operator, Sanchez Smith. The new location will be the 12th Dickey’s store to open in Georgia.


Originally from South Carolina, Smith recently made the state of Georgia his home and to immerse himself into his new community he decided to open his own restaurant. Smith has a passion for delicious, slow-smoked barbecue and when looking for franchising opportunities fell in love with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.


“The Dickey’s Barbecue Pit family is thrilled to have Sanchez Smith join our team,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “To enhance their passion for barbecue, we have each new Owner/Operator attend Barbecue University to learn how to perfectly smoke our meats ensuring all locations have the same authentic Dickey’s Barbecue Pit flavor. I am sure that Smith’s passion for barbecue and South Carolina roots will only heighten his Barbecue University experience.”
