With 15 years of franchising experience, James and Eun Thornton are eager to open their first barbecue concept with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. Married for 34 years, the couple turned business partners are both international transplants that have built a successful franchising operation from Las Vegas to San Diego. “I lived in Houston earlier in my career and fell in love with Texas barbecue there,” James says. “Now I am excited to grow with one of the most rapidly expanding franchises and the largest barbecue chain in the nation.”
