Dickey’s will join brands such as Cinnabon, Quizno’s, Nathan’s Famous, Shaquille O’Neal’s Big Chicken and many more that will be available for customers at the first-ever Ghost Kitchen Brands counter in a Walmart in New York state. While Dickey’s will only be serving two locations in November, it aims to grow its ghost kitchen offering to over 100 locations in the U.S. and existing locations in Canada.
“We are beyond excited to partner with Ghost Kitchen Brands and expand our availability to our fans,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc.
“Dickey’s is committed to constantly evolving with consumer trends, and Ghost Kitchen Brands’ innovative model provides another opportunity for us to stay ahead of the curve. We look forward to being on this journey with Ghost Kitchen Brands as it grows across the U.S. and Canada.”
“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit offerings are a delicious addition to our line-up of menu items,” said George Kottas, founder and CEO of Ghost Kitchen Brands.
“We’re excited to incorporate Dickey’s smoked meats and wholesome sides into our concepts, on their own or mix and matched with our other brands and available in one order out of our ghost kitchen.”
Ghost Kitchen freshly prepares food brand products in one kitchen and location, optimizing it for online delivery and pick up.
The rapidly growing concept’s expansion plans include opening more locations in Canada with additional U.S. locations including Texas, California, Illinois, Georgia over the coming months and in 2022.
Dickey’s appears to be growing through a strong period of growth after recently announcing 15 new restaurants for Singapore. The barbecue franchisor recently opened its first location in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with the aim to open 110 units across the country.
