DICKEY’S BARBECUE PIT Closed Location List

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.

(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).
