MONTGOMERY, Ala., May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit is steering growth to Alabama. The world's largest barbecue chain added another state to its growing list of new franchises by signing on Randy, Rosanne and Lauren Wiggins as its newest owners.
"We are thrilled about our first location in Alabama," said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We know the folks in Alabama will love our great tasting barbecue and we believe this will be the first of many new locations in the state."
The Wiggins family were all born and raised in Alabama. Rosanne is a school music teacher and Randy was a commercial oil field diver. Their daughter, Lauren, is adding restaurant management experience to add to the mix.
"We were drawn to Dickey's because the concept is unique -- they take pride in picking their meats and quality products and we are excited to bring a taste of the lone star state to the heart of Dixie," said franchise owner Lauren Wiggins. "At Dickey's you can get great tasting barbecue that is served fast – we can't wait to open in Montgomery."
Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941. Dickey's began franchising in 1994 and has continued to grow across the country. Dickey's currently has more than 230 locations. Alabama is the 42nd state for the nationally recognized fast-casual barbecue chain. With every new restaurant, the company creates additional jobs for landlords, brokers, construction companies, and of course makes an impact on the city it serves.
Since 1941, Dickey's Barbecue has offered free kids meals every Sunday and affordable family packs that come with a choice of two meats, three medium sides, six rolls and Dickey's famous barbecue sauce.
