The fast-casual barbecue concept is opening its first virtual kitchen outpost in city of Chicago, IL on Friday Oct.30
Chicago, IL (Restaurant News Release) Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is unveiling their first virtual kitchen this Friday, Oct. 30 in the city of Chicago, IL and with this model the international barbecue chain will forgo a traditional dine-in space and service the surrounding area through delivery only.
Barbecue fans in the surrounding 10-mile area will be able to get their Dickey’s fix by ordering delivery directly to their doorstep through dickeys.com or the Dickey’s app. This model, which services guests solely through online ordering and third-party delivery, is the first of its kind to open for the Texas-based, family-owned franchise.
“As an industry leader we are continually adapting our restaurant models to fit the needs of both the economic climate and the fluctuations of guest behavior and with states such as Illinois cautiously suspending indoor dining operations once again, the opening of our first virtual kitchen could not be more timely,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc.
Guests in the surrounding Chicago, IL area can enjoy free delivery through Dickeys.com and the Dickey’s App on all orders of $10 or more.
This is Dickey’s fifth Illinois location in and the second to open in the Chicago area. Dickey’s new Chicago location will feature the brand’s full line-up of authentic, Texas-style barbecue classics such as hickory-smoked brisket and fall-off-the-bone ribs alongside wholesome sides like mac n cheese, creamed spinach and more.
