DICKEY’S BARBECUE PIT Closed Location List – UPDATED

DICKEY’S PIT BARBECUE Closed Location List is an interactive and continually updated work-in-progress.  Please share information on Dickey’s franchise closures, ownership changes, franchise transfers and reopenings.  UPDATED!

(UnhappyFranchisee.Com)  DICKEY’S PIT BARBECUE Closed Location List is an ongoing attempt to track Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchise closings as well as franchise ownership transfers.

Dickey's Barbecue PitWe put together the initial Dickey’s location list by compiling from publicly available online sources (such as Yelp, Facebook, and local news outlets), Dickey’s Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs), analysis and tracking of the location page on the Dickeys.com website, and input from Dickey’s franchise owners and former owners.

Moving forward, we will rely on tips posted below or emailed to UnhappyFranchisee[at]gmail.com from Dickey’s current and former franchisees, managers, employees, staff, vendors, and customers.

Please add dates and insights below! (Anonymous info and emails are fine as long as verifiable).

* Thus far, Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. has declined to disclose or confirm franchise closures or ownership transfers.  For this reason, this is an imperfect and but constantly updated list, and our attempt to identify closed or high owner turnover locations.  There are surely closures we have missed and others that may have been reopened by the company or different owners.  Please verify your own local Dickey’s and share any updates or corrections below.  Please also report closed locations on Yelp via the Edit Company Details link on the location page.

**  Franchise owners report that troubled stores are often transferred to new owners for little or no money in order to keep them from closing.  A transferred store might still mean the franchise owner lost his/her investment the same as if they closed.

Information is approximate.  Please investigate yourself and let us know what you find.

    Most people who exit the Dickeys system end up in bankruptcy. Not because Dickeys sues them (although they do this also) but, because they/we take/took out HUGE loans, more then we were told it would be to build out these properties and put equipment in them. From what I understand from other franchisees and myself the golden number is $150,000. Most of us were told build out and equipment all in would be $150,000. The big red flag should’ve been when our build out bill was $100,000 and our equipment was $100,000 and that didn’t include, franchises fees, POS (point of sale not piece of sh%t but that’s what it should stand for) architect, first day deposits, food, because grand openings always mean free food, paying salaries for training staff two weeks prior to opening, working capital, tvs, the $4000 boss system. All in is closer to $350-450,000 range. Everything moves quickly before you know it your money is spent and your taking out huge loans.

    The first year always seems great, you forget that you have gotten free rent or tenant improvement money and you think your actually making money. Within six months (if you haven’t already agreed prior) Dickeys is asking you to start on your second store, or approaching you about a failing store (they will say this is a store failing because of money mismanagement and not the actual truth) they will tell you this store is free and clear. As we all learned when we were young, nothing in this world is free. Loans willl pop up, banks will
    Threaten to take your equipment unless you pay up, want to keep that catering number? You better pay that back bill. Oh, catering down payment already taken? Sucks to be you. Maybe they will even approach you with multiple free stores, great, more loans you will be paying off. If your really lucky you get to fight with the department of revenue over this free store that owes them back sales tax. You will have personally guaranteed your house, your car, your first born and probably another family members house and car to your bank, to your landlord, to Dickeys (again the least of your worries). When you close or give your store back to them you will owe hundreds of thousands and will be forced into bankruptcy. Don’t believe it? Call any of the owners on the closed list, they will confirm. Pensions, retirements, inheritances, every single dollar you owned, GONE, most within 3 years. But the best thing you can do? Don’t stay quiet, spread the word, share your story, share others. Contact the FTC, contact your law makers. Roland Dickey JR should be in prison from the things he has done to people.

    You can add the Dickey’s in Idaho Falls, Idaho to your list. Went over there 9/3/17 & they were closed, but no signs on doors or anything. Checked back several times dice & no sign of life. There’s a Keller-Williams real estate lockbox on the door, but our realtor says it’s been on the market for 6 months. Pretty rude. SOMEONE could have made a note, or they could have taken 5 minutes to put the letters CLOSED on their movable plastic letter sign out front.

    Tod,

    If you followed any of the other unhappy posts you would realize that a sign or posting it on your letter board. Doesn’t work. Corp will come take the signs down or cover them. They will stop at no lengths to cover up a failed store. They will take your neon signs down so people “forget” you were ever there. Also, sometimes it’s hard for owners to just close. This is just a corporate chain closing, it’s someone losing their life savings, or pensions, or houses. I think posting a sign may possibly be the furthest thing from their mind when they are about to lose everything.

    Just my two cents

    Tod,

    The reason they haven’t advertised that store is closed is because at this very moment they are looking for a sucker to flip it to. Expect to see it open again in a couple of weeks. And closed again in a few months…

    I tried going to the Dickeys in Layton, UT and it was closed. This must be recently as I drove by last week and it seemed open then. There is a sign on the door that it is closed permanently. I checked Google and Yelp and they haven’t updated yet.
