Dickey's Barbecue Pit has been a family business for the past 75 years and Bradley and Nicole Sweeney are proud to be a part of that family tradition. The Sweeneys moved to South Carolina after falling in love with the area while on vacation, and have called it home ever since. After spending years in the restaurant industry, the Sweeneys decided it was time to open their own business and found a home in Dickey's. "We picked Dickey's over every other franchise program because of the level of support they offer to the franchisees," says Nicole Sweeney. "And of course because we love Dickey's slow-smoked, Texas-style barbecue."
