"We could not be more excited about our grand opening event on Friday and bringing Dickey's Barbecue to Greeley," said Jennifer O'Hara, who owns and operates the franchise location with her husband, Derek. "The grand opening will not only be a celebration, but an opportunity to thank the community for their support."
The grand opening will be held at 2331 23rd Avenue from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. with $1 pulled pork sandwiches and three giveaways for free barbecue for a year.
"Dickey's Barbecue is new to Greeley, but the community has been very receptive to the family-friendly atmosphere, variety of food and the free ice cream!" said Jennifer.
This is the seventh location in Colorado and the first in Greeley.
Texas-based Dickey's Barbecue Pit opened in 1941, and will celebrate its 70th anniversary this October.
The original Dallas location remains open for business and Dickey's Barbecue Pit is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family.
There are 172 locations in 39 states.
Even today, Dickey's still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
