LOS ANGELES — Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has just executed a development agreement for three new stores just south of Los Angeles. The new stores will be located in Lomita, Hawthorne and El Segundo, and will be owned and operated by Alex Roth who also owns the Dickey’s location in Redondo Beach. The Hawthorn location is slated to open by early 2017, followed by Lomita by the end of 2017.
“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is proud to expand so rapidly in California this year,” says Roland Dickey Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. “We have opened several new stores throughout The Golden State, which has the greatest number of Dickey’s locations after Texas.”
Owner/Operator Alex Roth is a former United States Marine Corps reservist, but began his career in foodservice at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit. After becoming a barbecue expert in his local store, he had the opportunity to invest in a franchise. His first franchise was the Redondo Beach location, for which he increased sales by 300 percent in three years. “I love making high quality, authentic food,” Roth says. “I find that my Dickey’s stores are good for my community in so many ways, from serving excellent barbecue with great service to providing jobs for local citizens.”
