Dickey's Barbecue Comes to Downtown Raleigh Area Developer Forecasts North Carolina Locations to Triple by Year End

Chapel Hill, NC, August 06, 2010 --(PR.com)-- GMW Carolina, Inc that locally owns and operates two area Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations in Cary and Durham has signed a lease to expand into Raleigh. The location will be on 170 East Davie Street in the Progress Energy building between City Market and Fayetteville Street. The location is expected to open this fall and will include breakfast on weekdays, a unique menu item at many Dickey’s locations and the first location for North Carolina.

“It is really exciting to be part of the continued growth and revitalization of downtown Raleigh,” said Gregory Woloszczuk, President GMW Carolina. Maureen Woloszczuk partners with her husband, Gregory, making up GMW Carolina, Inc., said she is equally excited about the business’ persistent and rapid growth. “We were excited to be part of the Downtown Live Series last year working with Curtis Media’s 96 Rock as well as the good folks at Deep South Entertainment,” Maureen Woloszczuk, Vice-President GMW Carolina stated. “Since we supported the downtown events including a few of the festivals last year, many people encouraged us to expand downtown. Well, the timing is right and Raleigh is such a clean and nice looking city. We are happy to be able to give folks more choice in barbecue.”

The Woloszczuk’s are also Area Developers for North Carolina, working with Dickey’s Barbecue parent company to bring as many Dickey’s to North Carolina as it will hold. Gregory said this has been a very rewarding feat. “We have been working with three local teams of owners that are scheduled to open in Greenville, Winston Salem, and Southern Pines this fall,” he said. “What makes it special is each location has unique character while still maintaining the high quality standards that has allowed Dickey’s to be consistently awarded and recognized nationwide. One of the greatest benefits for North Carolina will be Dickey’s commitment in giving back to local communities. We have done a lot for the Durham, Chapel Hill, and Cary communities and don’t ever plan to slow down.”

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is also located at 200 Crossroads Blvd, Cary and 5318 New Hope Commons Drive, Durham. Both locations are locally owned and operated by GMW Carolina, Inc..

The first Dickey’s Barbecue opened in 1941 in Dallas, TX. The original location is still open for business and Dickey’s Barbecue is still owned and operated by the Dickey Family. Dickey’s only began franchising in 1994, now there are over 120 locations in 30 states. Even today, Dickey’s still slow smokes all of their signature meats overnight in every restaurant.
