The Daniel brothers oversee two other Dickey’s locations in addition to Springboro — in Mason and South Lebanon — and plan to add as many as 10 more locations over the next decade, Dickey’s officials and Randy Daniel said.

Initially, the Springboro restaurant — at 752 Gardner Road across Ohio 741 from the Settler’s Walk retail center — is expected to be the northernmost in the Dickey’s presence in southwest Ohio. But Daniel made it clear he and his brother have not ruled out shifting their expansion efforts farther north in the future.
Daniel described the customer response to the Springboro restaurant during the first month “very good.”
“We’ve had a lot of positive comments,” Daniel said. “It has opened very well.”

Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc., said in a release, “Dickey’s Barbecue Pit always has been a family-run, family-oriented business and that is something we pride ourselves on. Having experienced franchisees, such as the Daniel brothers, eager to open new locations is a testament not only to the success of our business, but the brand as a whole.”
