Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Ramps Up Catering Program as Country Reopens

Published: 26 May 2020

America’s longtime catering expert – Dickey’s Barbecue Pit – is rolling out a new line-up of catering options for guests looking to safely feed large groups as more states reopen.

To provide an alternative to its popular communal delivery buffet or to feed large groups on-the-go, Dickey’s is now offering an expanded variety of boxed meals that come packaged individually. Orders also feature new item labels for accuracy and more individualized sauce options.

“Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, we’ve seen a huge demand from big box retailers, grocery stores and government offices to cater our comfort food to their frontline workers,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Our extended catering options give businesses and organizations who are beginning to reopen an easy, affordable way to feed all of their employees a variety of slow-smoked meals without going off-site.”

Guests can now upgrade their boxed lunch experience with Dickey’s Westerner Sandwich, Chicken Caesar Salad or Loaded Baker for events of any size. At participating locations, guests can add one of Dickey’s Southern favorite sides to their boxed lunch order for an additional $1.

Now through the end of May, employers, graduates and event planners can use the code 10offcatering at checkout on to receive 10% off their catering order or call 1-866-BARBECUE (866-227-2328) to speak to a catering expert and receive a customized free quote.

The world’s largest barbecue concept offers catering set-ups for groups of all sizes, including party platters, full-service buffets and delivery buffets. Dickey’s catering experts are all ServSafe certified and wear masks and gloves both in-store and off-premise when handling and preparing authentic, Texas-style barbecue.
