Real Talk with Real Owners: Skyler Jones of Garden City, Idaho

Please click here for more information on Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

For Skyler Jones, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is a family affair. After living in Texas for 14 years, Skyler and his father knew they needed to bring slow-smoked barbecue to their new hometown of Boise, Idaho. The father - son team now have three Dickey’s stores in the area, in addition to a family-owned storage facility business.

 A Brigham Young graduate in entrepreneurship and business management, Skyler always knew he wanted to start and grow his own business. After attending Dickey’s 4-week long training program at the corporate office, Barbecue University, he knew he was on track for success as a multi-franchise unit owner/operator.

Skyler and his father Keith are well-connected in the community, serving in their local church and making a practice of helping others. They have met many new friends through their service, who have now become loyal customers. “I enjoy selling food that I love to eat, and I love working with great people,” Skyler says. “My team is fantastic and we are building a tasty reputation in the Boise area.”
