New Franchise Owner Achieves American Dream with Dickey's Barbecue Grand Opening

(Killeen, TX) – Nigerian native Joseph Enueshike will be living his American dream as a new business owner when his new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location opens this Thursday. Gift cards will be offered to the first 50 guests, three lucky winners will receive free barbecue for a year and one guest will be chosen for a $500 gift card.

"Dickey's Barbecue Pit has over 500 locations across the U.S., but our home base is in Texas," says Roland Dickey, Jr., Dickey's CEO. "We look forward to opening our newest Texas store in Killeen and we are proud to support Joseph in achieving his American Dream."

The three-day grand opening includes:

  • Thursday, September 10 kicks off with the first 50 guests receiving gift cards worth up to $50.

  • Friday, September 11, radio station KUSJ US 105 FM will be on-site from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. The new store will serve barbecue specials such as $2 pulled pork sandwiches. One lucky winner will be chosen for a $500 gift card and three winners will receive free barbecue for an entire year.

  • Saturday, September 12, Dickey’s will give away goodies and merchandise all day.

Owner/operator Joseph Enueshike came to America in 1982 to go to college, and worked hard in the Fast Casual industry for decades. He worked his way from bus boy to area manager, and after 18 years decided it was time for the next step: owning his own business. “I can’t wait to put all my skills to use that I have learned in my career,” Enueshike says. “But this time I am putting them to use for my own business.”
