College Sweethearts Open Second Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Shreveport

August 28, 2014

Catherine and Matthew Long met at Louisiana Tech University and moved to Dallas shortly after college. They fell in love with Dickey’s Barbecue, but were transferred to the Shreveport Bossier area in 2008. On Thursday, August 28 at 11 a.m., the couple will open their second Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location in Shreveport with a three-day grand opening celebration. The first 50 dine-in guests receive gift cards worth up to $50.

“I’m a Dallas native and I’ve always loved Dickey’s Barbecue, so it was the perfect choice when we were looking for the right franchise,” said multi-unit franchise owner, Catherine Long. “Our first restaurant has done really well here because it’s a great product with a family-friendly atmosphere.”
