Watch out Rudy's, Dickey's Barbecue is coming to town


LAREDO, Texas, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire

Dickey's Barbecue is looking to open a location in Laredo. Keith Selman has signed a franchise agree with Dickey's and is excited to begin.

"The whole idea of owning and operating a Dickey's, serving people, a new experience, plowing new ground and being a business owner is all so exciting," said Selman.  

Selman was born in North Carolina and grew up in the south east. At age 29, Selman moved to Laredo and has stayed there ever since. Prior to owning a Dickey's Selman was the planning director of the City of Laredo.

"The Laredo community is in desperate need of hickory smoked barbecue," said Selman. "Hickory wood is a superior wood for smoking and ultimately makes the best barbecue flavor so I know Dickey's is going to be a huge success here."

Dickey's Barbecue offers a quality selection of signature meats, home style sides and tangy barbecue sauce.

  1. Enough with the restaurants. Laredoans eat enough food already.

  2. I agree but that's the only businesses coming to town, well eateries and the poverty industry businesses (pawn shops, cash advance, rapid-refund and the like).


  3. If you could think of anyone who would know if a new chain would succeed or not in Laredo, it would be the former director of Planning & Zoning.
