La Marque Lands Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Location Set to Open September 2018
News Release
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

La Marque, Texas - A new 2,165 square-foot Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location is set to open at La Marque Crossing in September 2018. La Marque Crossing is anchored by Walmart Supercenter at the corner of Interstate 45 and FM 1764. The restaurant will take an endcap space closest to Panda Express. New franchise owners Dave and Lesa Covert have been residents of Galveston County for more than 20 years and are excited to open and own their own business in La Marque.

“We chose this location because of the power corner,” said Dickey’s co-owner Dave Covert. “This is THE Walmart and THE Sam’s for everyone from La Marque, Texas City, Santa Fe and Hitchcock – it really draws from all of southern Galveston County. Panda Express, I-HOP, and Waffle House have all invested in this corner and that says something.”

The new Dickey’s Barbecue Pit location is expected to generate six full-time jobs and six part-time jobs.

“For some of our positions, we’ll be targeting College of the Mainland students,” said Covert. “The schedule is flexible and allows them to attend classes during our slow times.”

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit offers dine-in, drive-thru, catering, online ordering and holiday meals. For information, visit or register for City of La Marque e-notifications for updates, including grand opening and hiring events at
