Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is steering growth to Alabama. The world’s largest barbecue chain added another state to its growing list of new franchises by signing on Randy, Rosanne and Lauren Wiggins as its newest owners.

“We are thrilled about our first location in Alabama,” said Roland Dickey, Jr., president of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “We know the folks in Alabama will love our great tasting barbecue and we believe this will be the first of many new locations in the state.”

The Wiggins family were all born and raised in Alabama. Rosanne is a school music teacher and Randy was a commercial oil field diver. Their daughter, Lauren, is adding restaurant management experience to add to the mix.
