Business Description

***Special Note: In a victory for small business buyers, the recent $900BB stimulus bill directs the SBA to pay the first 6 months of new SBA 7(a) loans approved between February 1 and September 30, 2021 (up to $9,000/month). Our advice: Don't wait. Find a quality business and get moving quickly. Banks will be busy this year and buyers that wait until July/August will likely lose out.

Profitable Michigan-based Dickey’s Barbecue Pit for Sale!
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit first opened in 1941 and has since grown into the largest barbecue chain in the world. Dickey’s offers seven slow-smoked, Texas-style meats and a variety of savory sides, all served with a touch of southern hospitality. Since 1941, Dickey’s has slow-smoked their meats overnight, every night to ensure its authentic flavor.
