World's Largest Barbecue Franchise Opens Newest Texas Location

Texas Business reports: GEORGETOWN, Texas—Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants opened a new location in Georgetown, Texas.

“Everywhere I go people show their excitement about a Dickey's Barbecue Pit opening,” said franchise owner Marcos Esquivel in a prepared statement. “Georgetown is a great family friendly community and I know they are going to love our food.”

Esquivel is from Austin, Texas. Prior to owning a Dickey's Esquivel was a general manager for Jiffy Lube and Sprint. For years, Esquivel also has starred in several commercials and films.

“I respect Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants and their successful family owned franchise concept,” said Esquivel. “Family is so important and my parents have supported me throughout the whole process and really helped make this dream possible. Unfortunately, I recently lost my Dad, but I know he would be so proud.” 

The Georgetown location is at 723 West University Avenue in Georgetown.

Dickey's has more than 90 locations throughout Texas and has plans to open new locations this year in Levelland, Mansfield, Carrollton, Duncanville, Cypress, and Ennis.  

 The fast-casual family-friendly concept has expanded to over 250 locations in 43 states and holds the title of the world's largest barbecue franchise.
