Dickey's will open in two new Ann Arbor, Michigan, locations, one of which is the University of Michigan campus.
Husband and wife franchise team William and Rebecca Kaufman are the operators.
"I grew up eating Dickey's and I am excited to bring the residents of Ann Arbor their own little bit of Texas-style barbecue," William Kaufman said in a press release. "I am most looking forward to opening our campus location to win the hearts of the students of the University of Michigan."
"We're excited William Kaufman is joining the Dickey family and bringing barbecue to the campus," Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, said in the release. "We think William is right when he says Michigan students will love our real pit smoked barbecue."
