ROGERS, Ark. -- Dickey’s Barbecue is building momentum throughout Arkansas. The world’s largest barbecue chain is developing new locations in the state with Lowell and Siloam Springs already open and Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Searcy and Little Rock set to open soon.
“We are seeing an uptick in interest in Arkansas and are thrilled with the excitement surrounding our brand,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We have very energized franchise owners in Arkansas and we know they are going to make the Dickey’s brand grow and prosper in the state.”
Dickey’s Barbecue added almost 100 stores last year and is planning to add at least that many new locations nationwide in 2013. The new location in Rogers, off of Promenade Boulevard, will be owned by Jared Thompson.
