The entire Dickey's family is saddened by the events that occurred in Utah and takes this incident very seriously. We are keeping the entire Harding family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
We would like to reassure the public that this was an isolated incident in South Jordan, Utah. Nothing like this has occurred in the 73 years we have operated. There is nothing more important to us than the trust and safety of our guests. The independent owner of the South Jordan location is deeply saddened by this incident; he is fully cooperating with authorities as they investigate how this tragic event occurred. The health inspector was called to the location during the incident and the store passed all requirements to remain open. The incident is still under investigation.
Dickey's appreciates all of the messages of support. We ask for your prayers for the Harding family.
