Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will bring Texas-style barbecue to Egypt with a location the chain plans to open this spring in Cairo. The chain signed a development agreement with Swinder Group to bring its brand to Africa for the first time.

“Since my family opened the first Dickey’s in 1941, we’ve made it our mission to serve as many guests as possible the very best barbecue out there,” says Roland Dickey, Jr., CEO of Dickey’s Capital Group. “With this new partnership, Dickey’s Legit. Texas. Barbecue. will soon be available on four continents.”

In addition to more than 500 locations in North America, Dickey’s opened its first international location in Asia in the UAE in 2018, and the chain will open its first South American location in Brazil in June.
