KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit Owner/Operator Ryan Wenrich ventured out from the typical Dickey's Barbecue Pit location and has set up shop at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium.

His first concession location opened during preseason and a second location will be opening soon.
"We are excited to have this opportunity at Arrowhead Stadium," says Wenrich. "Nothing goes better with football than delicious barbecue and we are proud to offer this to the fans at Arrowhead stadium this season and hopefully many seasons in the future."
