Dickey’s Barbecue Pit , which opened at 752 Gardner Road in Springboro three weeks ago, will launch a month of introductory special offers today with a giveaway of “free barbecue for a year” to three customers.
The restaurant across Ohio 741 from the Settler’s Walk retail center is the first Dickey’s in the Dayton area, and it is operated by Dickey’s franchise owners Kevin and Randy Daniel, who oversee two other Cincinnati-area locations.

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit always has been a family-run, family-oriented business and that is something we pride ourselves on,” Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc., said in a release. “Having experienced franchisees, such as the Daniel brothers, eager to open new locations is a testament not only to the success of our business, but the brand as a whole.”
Founded in 1941, Dickey’s bills itself as “the nation’s largest barbecue chain,” operating more than 550 locations in 45 states. The Dallas-based chain operates locations in Mason, South Lebanon and Amelia in southwest Ohio, and three in central Ohio north of Columbus.
It offers traditional Texas-style barbecue meats that are smoked in-house at each restaurant. In 2016, Dickey’s won first place on a “Top 100 Movers and Shakers” list assembled by Fast Casual, a publication and web site that cover the fast-casual segment of the restaurant industry.
