Both college music majors, Lawrence and Bianca opened their first Dickey's store in January 2014, and have two stores in the pipeline including the Mount Pleasant store opening this weekend. Bianca is still an accomplished pianist, but Lawrence traded the tuba for electrician's equipment and worked overseas on military bases for many years. Following his career as an electrician, Lawrence knew he wanted to open a franchise in which he could give back to his community. "We are excited to open the doors and meet the neighborhood," Bianca says. "We have already hired some amazing people who have made training in the store fun and friendly. We can't wait for Mount Pleasant to join us in celebrating our grand opening."
