Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Expands into Mississippi Delta
Dickey’s has executed a development agreement for three new stores in Mississippi
(Greenville, MS) Dickey’s Barbecue Pit announces expansion into the Mississippi Delta. The three new locations will be the first in the Mississippi Delta. The first store will be located in Greenville, and will open by the end of 2016. The additional locations will open in Cleveland and Greenwood, with timeline to be determined.
“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is proud to expand into this new area,” says Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. “The South is known for its appreciation of great barbecue, and we look forward to bringing our Texas- style flavors to the Mississippi Delta for the first time.”
Owner/Operator Dominick Trinca was born and raised in New York, but moved to Mississippi in 1994 after getting married and practiced medicine for 20 years there. Having always wanted to open a restaurant, Trinca decided to take the leap into franchising with Dickey’s Barbecue Pit after researching the brand thoroughly. He tasted the food and knew he wanted to serve Texas-style barbecue to his community. “I knew my community needed a new Fast Casual option,” Trinca says. “This area loves barbecue and I believe the brand is a great fit for my family because of its support system and excellent quality.” Trinca hopes to leave his restaurants as a legacy for his three sons.

The Pizza Hut Franchise's Crown Crust Pizza
The Crown Crust Pizza may strike U.S. eaters as a truly strange juxtaposition of American fast food staples, but to a foreign audience, it's no less bizarre than piling ethnic entrees from different regions onto a single plate and labeling them by country, as in U.S. strip mall buffets that feature Indian food items side-by-side while those same items may only be eaten thousands of miles apart in their country of origin.
Franchise Marketing Fund Disclosure: A Cold Stone Creamery Case Study
In the Cold Stone case, the franchisees are also seeking information relating the pricing of the supplies on which the franchisor is receiving the vendor rebates. If it turns out that the prices that vendors charge franchisees are artificially inflated in order to allow for payment of these “kickbacks” to the franchisor, then the franchisees no doubt will assert additional claims in their lawsuit against Kahala. Such claims may include fraud for inadequate or misleading disclosures in the Cold Stone FDD (if in fact information was withheld – at this point, we don’t know who is right or wrong).
