"We are proud to open the eighth Dickey's Barbecue Pit in Nevada, and look forward to many more locations in The Silver State," says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "We congratulate Owner/Operator Doug Dubin on opening his first of eight Dickey's locations."

For the Dubin family, Dickey's Barbecue Pit is a family business. The Pahrump location is the first of eight stores which will open in Nevada and Southern California, and the entire Dubin family will be a part of each store's operations. The fact that the barbecue brand is still owned and operated by its founding family was a big part of Doug Dubin's decision to start franchising. "We are excited to provide career opportunities for our family and other families," Dubin says. "We look forward to serving authentic Texas barbecue to our community in Pahrump and future locations." Dubin's next Dickey's location will open in the Las Vegas area by mid-2017, with at least two more stores to open in and around the Las Vegas Valley and four in Southern California. The new Dickey's location will also hold fundraisers for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and American Cancer Society during their four-week opening celebration.
Residents of Pahrump can find their newest Dickey's at 240 Highway 160, Unit 17, Pahrump, NV 89048. The phone number is 775-209-1950.
