After a week away, BizBlog is back in business. Here's one item while I play catch-up at the office:
Dickey's Barbecue Pit is opening a second restaurant in Whatcom County.
The new restaurant is opening at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 26, at 2054 Main St. in Ferndale. Once open, hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, said franchise owner Dustin Benson.
The first Whatcom County Dickey's restaurant opened in Lynden in 2012. The Ferndale restaurant will have the same menu as the one in Lynden, Benson said.
