Hickory’s Smokehouse are a small group of authentic, barbecue-style restaurants that live and breathe the values of the American Deep South.
The restaurant chain, with multiple sites across Merseyside, Deeside and the Midlands, employs 526 staff and was founded in 2008 by Neil McDonnell. By 2014, the firm had three sites but secured a £6m investment to open a further ten restaurants.
Hickory’s Smokehouse isn’t so much a restaurant chain as a philosophy. It’s inspired by the open-hearted service style and delicious barbecue food of Southern USA.
The team criss-crosses South America in search of new menus. What they’ve also found is the generosity and warmth of the Southern people, and they’ve brought that state of mind back to the UK.
The five stars next to the name represent five values that are incorporated into the Hickory’s Smokehouse experience. They include authentic and quirky, which could mean free popcorn on arrival or ‘build your own’ frozen custard for kids.
