Video: Dickey's CEO honored to win Fast Casual Top 100
FastCasual's editorial team has released the Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers, its annual list of the industry's most significant brands and executives, awarding Dickey's Barbecue Pit the coveted No. 1 spot. CEO Roland Dickey Jr. accepted the honor at this year's annual gala Sunday in Chicago.
"The top spot unanimously went to Dickey's Barbecue Pit for not only its impressive growth performance (a 19 percent year-over-year growth rate with nearly 550 units and plans to open 100 this year), but also because it is a leader when it comes to implementing technology to enhance the guest experience," said Cherryh Cansler, managing editor of FastCasual.
The gala and the Top 100 report were sponsored by Taylor.
