ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit's Rock Springs location will hold their Grand Opening event Friday February 11th, serving up hot pit-smoked meats, home-style sides and one dollar big barbecue sandwiches for all.
The event kicks off at 11 a.m. where patrons can also enter to win free barbecue for a year, according to officials.
Dickey's is growing at a rapid pace with 140 locations and sixty more are in development across the country this year.
Its latest addition is at 76 Gateway Blvd in Wyoming.
"People in Wyoming are in need of a great barbecue establishment and we are excited to finally bring Dickey's to the state, especially to Rock Springs," said Franchise Owner Lesly Solano. "Since we have been open, it has been a wonderful experience-- a lot of hard work that is definitely paying off. We look forward to seeing everyone at the first grand opening in the state and officially marking our place here."
Mrs. Solano, along with her husband Victor, said they decided to open a location in Rock Springs because they thought it would be a great business opportunity.
"You cannot find better people to work with than those at Dickey's and they have been there hand in hand with us since the very beginning," Mrs. Solano said.
This seems to be the sentiment of all Dickey's owner/operators.
"We care deeply about the success of our owners," said Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. President Roland Dickey, Jr. "The Solanos have been a wonderful addition to our business family and we know they will be successful. Rock Springs is a welcoming community and a great place to do business."
The first Dickey's Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX.
The original location is still open for business and Dickey's Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.
Committed to exceptional quality at a great value, Dickey's Barbecue is unlike anything in the area, according to Solano.
This is the first location for Dickey's in the state.
