NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit is throwing a smokin' celebration on Friday, June 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. In honor of the grand opening event Dickey's will be serving $1 pulled pork sandwiches.
"Before we opened, North Richland Hills was really lacking a great barbecue place," said franchise owner Shawn Boedecker. "We are excited to be serving our authentic mouthwatering barbecue to this great community."
Shawn grew up in Lewisville and his wife Beth is from Middletown, New Jersey. This new location is the fifth Dickey's for the couple. The Boedeckers own and operate Dickey's Barbecue in Roanoke, Hurst, Bedford and the North Fort Worth location on Blue Mound Road.
