(Ceres, CA) Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has just executed a new three-store development agreement in Northern California. The new stores will be located in Ceres, Oakdale and Atwater. The Ceres store will open by the end of 2016, followed by the stores in Oakdale and Atwater.
Owner/Operator Amrik Singh has a long history in quick service restaurants. As a teenager he started working in the industry, eventually progressing into management. Singh also had a brief stint of franchise ownership in a small California pizza concept. Originally from India, Singh and his family made their home in California when he was a young child, and he looks forward to providing for his family in America for years to come. “Dickey’s has been incredibly supportive throughout this whole process, and I am blown away by the corporate office and their attention to detail,” says Singh. “We have purchased holiday meals from Dickey’s for years, and I am glad to now own my own stores and serve authentic, delicious food to my community.”
“Dickey’s is growing rapidly along the West Coast, particularly in California,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We recently announced the development of our 100th store in the state, and look forward to continued partnerships with Owner/Operators such as Amrik Singh.”
