Published: 12 Mar 2018

(Oklahoma City, OK) Tom and Ben Michaud plan to bring three Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations to Oklahoma. Their first location is slated to open in the coming weeks in Oklahoma City with two more following in late 2018. 

“The Dickey family congratulates Tom and Ben on opening their first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location in Oklahoma City,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We look forward to their success and are excited for the future they have with the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit brand.” 

Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Ben and his father looked to open a business where they could share their passion with their community. When the pair decided to break into the restaurant industry, they did extensive research on franchising concepts and found a home in Dickey’s Barbecue Pit.

“With their 75-year-old history, Dickey’s has created a strong brand name that we are proud to be a part of,” says Tom. “We look forward to opening our three Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations and making Oklahoma City Dickey’s Barbecue Pit country.”
