GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-unit franchise owners Richard and Cheryl Cochran and Larry and Sue Tyler are eager to open their third Dickey's locations in Nebraska. The new location in Grand Island will open this Thursday, August 23 and the first 100 customers will receive a free Pulled Pork Big Barbecue sandwich.
