Dickey’s Barbecue opening in Vernal

A new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit restaurant is opening today in Vernal.

The outlet is the 11th operated by Dickey’s franchise owner John Thomson and is located at 2085 W. Highway 40.

According to their website, Dickey's Barbecue Pit prides itself on authenticity, innovation and barbecue sauce, one store at a time. With roots in Dallas, Travis Dickey set out to perfect Texas-style barbecue.

Dickey's believes that the success of a franchise depends on quality food, recruiting the right owner-operators and providing an in-depth support system. The initial stage of franchise support begins at Barbecue U, an intense, three-week training session where owner-operators learn how to run the restaurant from open to close.

The loyal patrons are what keep Dickey's thriving in every community. Barbecue is a regional cuisine in mostly southern states, but Dickey's Barbecue Pit is changing that one restaurant at a time. As it continues to expand from coast to coast, customers are wooed by the home-style flavor and family friendly atmosphere. Salt Lake Tribune
