The fast-casual chain has partnered with delivery services to meet consumer demand for convenience.
DALLAS – Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has formed partnerships with more than 50 vendors to provide delivery services for the fast-casual chain’s franchises. GrubHub, UberEats, Postmates and Amazon are among the service providers.
“Folks’ idea of convenience has evolved to mean on demand, making delivery a guest expectation for most restaurants,” Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey's Barbecue Pit, said in a statement. “We are taking measures to ensure its success for our brand and franchises. By offering third-party delivery through dickeys.com as well as our partner’s sites, we’ve extended our barbecue base. Third-party delivery isn’t revolutionary, but integrating it seamlessly into our business is unique.”
Dickey’s new website hosts third-party delivery vendors which enables consumers to easily place online orders for delivery or in-store pickup. The company said more than 20 new delivery services have been added since the beginning of 2017, and new partnerships with additional providers are being formed weekly.
“Third-party delivery vendors allow our owner/operators to continue to focus on Texas-style barbecue and keep delivery costs low, while providing our guests ease in order and delivery,” Renee Roozen, president of Dickey’s, said in a statement.
