Roland Dickey, Jr. has had a busy year in 2015, but his personal engagements on the conference circuit have not deterred him from continuing the aggressive growth of his Dickey’s Barbecue franchise, which now offers Texas style barbecue nationwide in over 540 locations. Roland Dickey, Jr. is continuing explosive growth plans across the Pacific by bringing its signature slow-smoked barbecue to Hawaii with the addition of five future store locations following a newly executed Development Agreement. The five locations in and throughout Hawaii and will be owned and operated by current franchisee, Jack Chubb.
“Dickey’s has grown rapidly nationwide, and we are proud to add our 44th state,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “The new stores in Hawaii are our first venture as a company beyond the continental United States, and we look forward to further expansion overseas in the future.”
The first of the new five Hawaii stores are slated to open before the end of 2016. A former hospital administrator, Jack Chubb retired from his 34-year executive tenure and decided to become a business owner. He spent most of his research time at his local Dickey’s Barbecue Pit enjoying the authentic Texas-style barbecue, when he decided that the barbecue chain was the right opportunity for his next career move. “I love providing a great guest experience, and my favorite thing is to see the guests’ faces light up when they eat at Dickeys,” says Chubb. “Barbecue invokes great memories for most people, and I am happy to provide that experience in my stores and excited to bring it to Hawaii.”
Roland congratulated the franchisee on their successes, “We are thrilled to see Jack take us to our 44th state. It’s exciting to see Jack’s growth in his current community and with our brand. Our franchisees are an essential part of our brand and it’s always exciting to see them succeed at such a high level. These events will be huge in Hawaii, and also represent a bigger victory for our business nationwide.”
