Dickey’s Barbecue, the world’s largest barbecue chain, invites the Porterville community to its grand opening event on Friday, June 8 from 11am to 1pm.

“I am extremely excited,” said local franchise owner Ed Phillips. “Dickey’s serves great barbecue, excellent customer service and a family friendly environment—what’s not to love.”

At the event, customers will enjoy $1 pulled pork big barbecue sandwiches and three lucky customers will win free barbecue for a year.
