Dickey's Expands Manufacturing Footprint
Dallas, Oct. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is once again broadening their barbecue horizons with the launch of their new manufacturing and distribution plant, Wycliff Douglas Provisions. The state-of-the-art facility is centrally located in Mesquite, Texas, not too far from the original Dickey’s location and the company Headquarters in Dallas.
With 50,000 sq ft. of USDA Inspected production, Wycliff Douglas Provision’s primary goal is to control costs of goods for the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Owner/Operators. The facility is packed with multiple capabilities such as: sausage grinding, blending, stuffing, marinating, tumbling, smoking, slicing, shredding, and high-speed packaging. Additional facility benefits are its freezer capabilities and redistributing of frozen items to bring down freight costs while nationwide fuel and transportation costs are still at an all-time high.
