(Kingston, NY) Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will continue its expansion in the northeast with a new location in Kingston, NY. Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, a southern favorite, has been serving slow-smoked, Texas-style barbecue as a family for the past 75 years around the nation. Dickey’s is proud to have owners like Daniel Terlizzi who want to continue and expand the family business. This third Dickey’s location in New York is slated to open in Spring 2017,.


“The Dickey family congratulates Daniel Terlizzi on opening his Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location, and we look forward to opening more stores with him in the future,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Dickey’s has grown rapidly over the past 75 years and we are proud that we have continuously served delicious, slow-smoked barbecue throughout the nation”


Born and raised in New Jersey, Daniel Terlizzi is a family man above all else. Terlizzi has been a part of his family’s dance apparel business his whole life, and decided that it was time to venture out and start a business of his own. This new Dickey’s location will be a true family business with the involvement of Terlizzi’s three children. In the future, he hopes to open three more stores in the area so each of his children have the opportunity to run a store of their own. “I want to give each of my kids the stepping stones of the business and see what amazing things they do with it, and I believe Dickey’s is the perfect place to do that,” says Terlizzi.
