Dallas-based Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is expanding its Canadian development with a 30-unit deal with franchisee Muhammad Faisal, who operates several locations in the Toronto area.
“We want to accelerate our Dickey’s Franchise ownership through greater Toronto, and we are thrilled to enter the next chapter of our journey with Dickey’s,” Faisal said in a company press release. “It’s a partnership fueled by our dedication to delivering unique, high-quality food in a fast-casual environment, in the fast-paced Canadian landscape, alongside this esteemed North American brand known for its smoked barbecue concept. We look forward to building out over 30 locations across Greater Toronto and we are confident with our team and Dickeys.”
“We started at a responsible pace with Muhammad to ensure he felt comfortable with a bespoke development plan,” Jim Perkins, EVP of international development for Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, said in the release. “It soon became evident to Muhammad that he had the capacity and infrastructure to do more than he had originally planned. We sat down and agreed to modify his existing development, only to receive a request three months later for additional locations. We are mapping out Toronto and beyond and look forward to what the near future holds for this fantastic partnership.”
Dickeys has over 700 locations.
