G.I. Jobs Magazine States Dickey’s is Veteran Friendly

DALLAS, May 17, 2012 Dickey’s Barbecue is pleased to announce it has made G.I. Magazine’s Military Friendly Franchise list for 2012.
“We are honored to be ranked on this list — Our veteran’s provide a tremendous service to our country and Dickey’s is happy to help make the dream of owning their own restaurant business a reality,” said Roland Dickey, Jr. president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “My grandfather, Travis Dickey, Sr. opened our first barbecue restaurant in 1941 after his service in World War II.”

A recent study shows that veteran-owned franchises generate more than $41 billion annually and employ 1.5 million people. G.I. Jobs Magazine is a veteran-owned magazine that focuses on helping military veterans find career opportunities.

“Dickey’s provided me with an affordable opportunity to own my own business and I really like their Veteran’s programs,” said Tom Emmons, Dickey’s Barbecue franchise owner in Mesa, Arizona. “Their Military Discount program has actually been a great incentive for me to expand – I’m currently looking to open another location this year.”

Dickey’s Barbecue discounts franchise fees for all honorably discharged veterans who meet the franchise criteria and are approved through the application process. The honor of being ranked as a Military Friendly Franchise is only shared by 10% of all franchises nationwide. Results are compiled through national survey results.

Since 1941, the world’s largest barbecue franchise has offered free kids meals every Sunday and affordable family packs designed to bring the whole family together for dinner. Dickey’s Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce. All meats are slow smoked on-site in each restaurant.
