Dickey's Barbecue Pit recently announced the addition of John Geyerman to its family as the new Vice President of Franchise Sales. In his new role, he will work with the franchise business sales team to find the franchisees who will bring the famous Texas-style barbecue food the brand is known for to their communities.

According to Dickey, Geyerman's experience with other established large companies and his passion for the brand are great assets. Geyerman has extensive experience in resource management and retail operations, having worked with many industry titans in the retail sector.

Geyerman decided to join the food franchise brand so he could tap into his knowledge of business development and franchising to help it grow domestically and overseas.
