March 29, 2018 – Local franchisees Jonathan and Stephanie Frederick plan to bring their first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location to Leesburg, FL. The new location is slated to open by the new franchisees in late 2018.
“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has and always will be a family-run, family-oriented business and that is something we pride ourselves on,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “The partnership we have with each of our franchisees is very important to us and we look forward to supporting the Fredericks in their first restaurant venture.”
Originally from Florida, Stephanie looks forward to opening her first business with her husband, Jonathan, in the state they now both call home. Stephanie and Jonathan collectively bring years of restaurant experience to the Dickey’s brand along with a passion for smoking delicious barbecue.
“After making the decision to open our own restaurant for our family to run, we knew that it had to be Dickey’s Barbecue Pit,” says Jonathan. “Our passion for slow-smoked barbecue paired with Dickey’s experience and strong support for their franchisees made it an easy decision for us.”
