Dickey’s Barbecue franchise in Glasgow to open today


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

Thenew location will be opened by Brendan and Linda Powers with their two sons, BJ and Trevor.

A veteran of the U.S. Army, Brendan Powers looked to open a franchise during his retirement to run with his wife of 27 years and his two sons.

When researching franchising concepts, “Dickey’s was the perfect fit for my family’s first franchise,” says Brendan Powers. “Our family looks forward to serving the families of our community.”

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Glasgow is located at 2832 Pulaski Highway Newark, DE 19702. The phone number is 302-203-0040.

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.
