El Paso, TX (KTSM) - Shoppers at Sunland Park Mall will now have one more dining option beginning on Thursday. Dickey's Barbeque Pit will open their newest location in El Paso with a week's worth of giveaways including a full year of free barbeque for one lucky guest.
Dickey's Barbeque is the nation's largest chain barbeque restaurant, but this is it's first location in the El Paso area. El Pasoan Araceli Acosta franchised the location and decided to open in Sunland Park Mall. When looking for franchising opportunities, Acosta found a home in Dickey’s because of the delicious food and the great brand behind the food. “I am excited to have the opportunity to serve my community delicious, Texas-style barbecue,” says Acosta.
“The Dickey family congratulates Araceli Acosta on opening her first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Dickey’s has expanded to more than 570 locations in 43 states, and we are proud to have the opportunity to continue to serve delicious, slow-smoked barbecue to the people of Texas”
To enter to win free barbecue for a year, guests must be in the store for the first Saturday after opening to enter their name in the drawing. On Thursdays, the first 50 guests in the door will receive a complimentary special treat. On Fridays, Dickey’s offers 50 percent off to first responders and guests can donate to Dickey’s charitable foundation, Barbecue, Boots & Badges. On Sundays, kids eat free at Dickey’s with the purchase of an adult dine-in meal of $10 or more.
