Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will open a location in the Glasgow area today
The restaurant is off Route 40 in a newly constructed strip center near the Royal Farms station and convenience store
An earlier release stated that Powers would open a Dickey’s franchise in Middletown. A spokesperson for Dickey’s said plans now call for a location in 2019.
Dickey’s is the nation’s largest barbecue chain with 550 franchised locations around the nation.
Recent restaurant openings have been taking place in California and the family-owned company this month announced plans for another dozen restaurants in Texas and Louisiana.
The Glasgow location will face competition in an area that is something of a hotspot for barbecue.
Just down the highway is Smoke’s Smokehouse food trailer, with long-time barbecue spot, Durham’s operating off Elkton Road in Maryland. Also, a short drive away is the Famous Dave’s chain.
Barbecue has grown in popularity, due in part to interest in regional foods and televised national competitions.Dickey’s had a franchise location in Dover that was later closed.
