Dicky’s Barbecue Pit

240 South Highway 160, Unit 17


Age: 50

First job: “At 13 I worked for my father in sales in the family business.”

Years in Business: “I have been in sales for over 30 years.”

Background: “I have had my own business working in sales. I will be working at GM selling cars for the next year. I started Dicky’s because of job security. Times have changed and people don’t stay and retire with the same old company for their entire life. People nowadays have up to five or more jobs in their lifetime.”

Personal: “To relax we like to travel and go on cruises with the family. I am also a travel agent.”

Business Climate: “A big part of being successful in business is a good location. I feel we have that and more. I did this because I found a great location next to Denny’s. When I found this locale, I said we need to put something there.”
