"There are a lot of franchises out there," said Aaron Michals. "But Dickey's is the only one that offers an excellent support system."
The couple has recently moved from Pennsylvania to Georgia and is eager to begin serving lip smackin' barbecue in the south.
"We're looking forward to getting to know the Cumming community," said Aaron Michals. "We hope to open by early June."
The new location is at 415 Peachtree Parkway, Suite 255, near Northside Hospital.
Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened its first location in Dallas in 1941. Dickey's began franchising in 1994 and has continued to grow across the country. Dickey's currently has more than 220 locations and seven of them are in Georgia.
"We're always excited to add a new location and introduce a new community to Dickey's authentic slow smoked meats," said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc.
Dickey's Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are slow smoked on-site in each restaurant. For more information, including a full menu, other restaurant locations and franchising opportunities, please visit www.dickeys.com.
