Friends Open Up Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Ferndale (video)

(Crystal A. Proxmire, July 23, 2014)

After working together for 12 years in the mortgage underwriting business, Jason Irvine and Craig Southerland nicholas-schrock-allstatewere hungry for something more fun. While they were grateful for their work at JP Morgan Chase, there were some days where the best part was escaping for lunch and filling their bellies with barbeque at the Dickey’s Barbeque Pit location near their office.

“We always talked about starting a business together, and we loved Dickey’s food, so we thought, why not open our own?” Irvine said.

The newly constructed center at Woodward and W. Cambourne seemed like a great spot, just at the edge of the walkable Downtown area, but with their own parking and grouped with two other popular franchises, Pizza Hut and Jimmy Johns. Being a franchise gives them a proven concept to work with, brand recognition and plenty of support, which is important since this is their first business.

On July 23 they had their VIP Grand Opening with the Ferndale Chamber and the Ferndale DDA included among family and friends. They will officially be open for business on July 24.
