Father and son restaurateurs John and Max Lee opened their first two Dickey’s locations in November and their initial openings are two of nine total virtual locations they plan to open in the U.S. The family franchisees have signed development agreements to open seven other virtual kitchen Dickey’s locations in the San Francisco Bay area and one more off-premise based unit in Las Vegas.
In addition, the two are setting their sights on bringing Dickey’s, authentic Texas-style barbecue to the Southeast Asian countries of Myanmar, formally known as Burma, and the Philippines. Earlier this month, the Lees entered into a letter of intent with Dickey’s to develop close to 100 locations in both countries with the first one scheduled for the capital of the Philippines, Manila, around late next year.
Barbecue fans in the surrounding 10-mile area will be able to get their Dickey’s fix by ordering delivery directly to their doorstep through dickeys.com, the Dickey’s app or dialing the store by phone.
