Texas barbecue chain names second Hawaii franchisee

  • COURTESY DICKEY’S BARBECUE PIT

    Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has nearly 600 locations in 44 states and announced its first Hawaii franchisee, part-time Kauai resident Jack Chubb, about a year ago.

Seventy-five-year-old family business Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has named Danny Mabalot as its second Hawaii franchisee.

Mabalot, a Subway franchisee and operator, plans to open his first location of the Dallas-based barbecue chain within the next year.

The four Subway locations Mabalot runs with his brother were established by his father and were passed down, according to a statement from Dickey’s.

“We hope to continue the family business with Dickey’s and pass it down to the next generation just like my father did for my brother and me,” Mabalot said, in a statement.

No details of the exact location were released.

Dickey’s has nearly 600 locations in 44 states and announced its first Hawaii franchisee, part-time Kauai resident Jack Chubb, about a year ago. At the time, Chubb operated two Dickey’s locations in Florida as well as Aloha Furniture Gallery in Lihue.

No Hawaii locations yet appear on the Dickey’s website.
