Kelley Millikin has been passionate about the art of great barbecue for more than ten years, so the decision to join the Dickey’s family came naturally to him. Millikin worked in commercial sales, travelling every week, until deciding he wanted to open his own business in the town he has called home for the past 20 years. “Dickey’s is giving me the opportunity to do what I love most, make delicious, slow-smoked barbecue and serve the great people of my community,” says Millikin.

Residents of Hilliard can find their newest Dickey’s location at 3915 Britton Parkway Hilliard, OH 43026. The phone number is 614-777-4020.
