Restaurant chain Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has launched a mobile app which will allow its guests to order their favourites with the touch of a button.

Featuring everyday menu items to a full-sized catering, the app allows guests to order Dickey’s offerings online for either in-store or curbside pickup and/or delivery.

Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants CEO Laura Rea Dickey said: “We are living in an on-demand world where most guests will choose the location of their next meal primarily based on convenience.

“Our new app rewards our guests for their loyalty, fulfils the demand for convenience and most importantly, provides the authentic Texas-style barbecue they love.”

As part of the second phase of the Dickey’s app launch, a new loyalty rewards programme will go live in March. It is a review-based programme that rewards Dickey’s guests for feedback on their purchases.

The app is currently available in the Apple app store and will be launched for Android operating systems this summer.

Founded in 1941, Dallas-based Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants’ fast-casual concept has expanded to more than 550 locations in 44 US states.

The family-run barbecue franchise offers several slow-smoked meats and homestyle sides.
