"Our veterans provide a tremendous service to our country and Dickey’s is honored to help make the dream of owning their own restaurant business a reality," said Roland Dickey, Jr. president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "My grandfather, Travis Dickey, Sr. opened our first barbecue restaurant in 1941 after his service in World War I and we continue our commitment to veterans today."
