Las Vegas, NV (RestaurantNews.com) Local Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchisee, Ed Ciampa, plans to open his first Dickey’s location in Meadows Mall in Summer 2018. Though he is new to the Dickey’s family, Ed has over 30 years of franchising experience that he brings to the brand.
“At Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, we pride ourselves on serving each and every guest authentic, Texas-style barbecue,” says Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “With new franchisees such as Ed that have extensive franchising experience, we can continue to grow our brand and more importantly continue serving our guests delicious barbecue.”
Originally from Boston, Ed has called Las Vegas his home for the past 12 years and looks forward to bringing Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to his community.
“After deciding to take on a new restaurant concept, I knew barbecue was the perfect fit for my area because we have so few barbecue options in Las Vegas,” says Ed. “From there, Dickey’s was the easy answer, they have a great product, great franchisee support and are well known brand across the nation.”
