Local Family Brings Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to Parker

Published: 15 Jun 2018

(Parker, CO) Local Dickey’s franchisees Stephen and Heidi Bernier plan to bring their first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location to Parker, CO in Fall 2018. 

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has been family owned and operated since 1941 and we consider each of our owners as a part of our family,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We are proud when new franchisees, such as the Bernier family, invest in our brand and bring barbecue to their local community.” 

Originally from California, the Berniers moved to Parker ten years ago and have since called it their home. Heidi is very active in the community and after deciding to open their own restaurant, they knew that Dickey’s Barbecue Pit was the perfect option. 

“We look forward to becoming a part of the Dickey’s family,” says Heidi. “We have always wanted to open our own restaurant and with Dickey’s successful business model, delicious food and support for their franchisees, we cannot wait to bring our first Dickey’s to the people of Parker.”
