DALLAS (April X, 2021) – Barbecue restaurant brand Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is honoring those who protect and serve communities across the nation with the launch of Dickey’s Bottled Water.

Beginning May 3rd, guests can quench their thirst at any Dickey’s restaurant or catered event with a Dickey’s bottled water or a 24 ct case of Dickey’s bottled water. A portion of the proceeds from every Dickey’s water bottle sold will be donated to The Dickey Foundation, which provides safety equipment such as helmets, shields, protective equipment and overall support for local first responders.

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and The Dickey Foundation are proud supporters of our local first responders,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Doing both well and good is one of our guiding principles and we look forward to giving back and showing our support for local heroes nationwide.”

In addition to offering charitable water bottles, the Texas-style barbecue brand transformed its iconic Big Yellow Cup to the Golden 80th Anniversary, and currently the Historic Black & White Big Yellow Cup editions to commemorate Dickey’s 80th Anniversary. Dickey’s will continue to release four more, limited-edition cups totaling six throughout the year to celebrate its 80th anniversary.
