CONCORD, Calif., April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dickey's Barbecue Pit is heating things up in Concord. Entrepreneurs, Damon and Shantell Owens, are celebrating their grand opening on April 20 from 11am to 1pm where they will serve $1 pulled pork big barbecue sandwiches.
"The meats at Dickey's are simply the best. The ribs are fall of the bone delicious, the brisket is smoked to perfection for 14 hours and the peach cobbler reminds you of home," said Damon Owens. "In addition to that, families who are on a tight budget can enjoy great food at a great price without sacrificing quality or taste."
Self-starters, the Owens' have been in the real estate and mortgage business for over 16 years. They own Realty World of Brentwood and founded Second Chance Ministries. This is the first Dickey's Barbecue franchise opportunity for Damon and Shantell Owens who are looking for another location to open this year.
"From the first day we opened, the response from the Concord/Clayton Community has been absolutely amazing and we're so thankful for that," said Damon Owens.
At the event, customers will have a chance to win free barbecue for a year. Come join the celebration at 5434 Ygnacio Valley Rd.
"Damon and Shantell are very enthusiastic owners," said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "I know that they are going to enjoy the celebration with their community."
