Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is expanding its operations in Georgia and California as part of the company's long-term growth.

The chain has five locations in Atlanta and is looking to add to its store-presence there. Meanwhile, the company is on pace to open its first location in Modesto, Calif., through a franchise agreement with Jerrad Marsh and Dianne Marsh-King.

Dickey’s Barbecue opened more than 66 stores in 2011 and is planning to add 100 new locations nationwide this year. 

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941 and began franchising in 1994. Dickey’s has more than 200 locations in 36 states nationwide.

    California BBQ SUCKS! I love to eat Dickey's BBQ Brisket and I am disappointed that the two that opened in Orange County are now closed. There are plenty of firms that will reduce your rent or there's no fee. If successful they typically charge ~12% of the rent savings. Below is a link to the White Paper entitled "Four Strategies to Negotiating a Rent Reduction". I wish the Dickeys franchisee would have read it before he shuttered the restaurants.
