Famous Dave's eyeing Dickinson


Franchisees Casey and Pat Ryan don't know where or when yet, but they plan to bring barbecue chain restaurant Famous Dave's to booming Dickinson.

"We plan to build restaurants in Minot and in Dickinson," Casey Ryan said. "We're actively looking for property in both those two markets."

The brothers, who are about three months away from opening their first North Dakota Famous Dave's in Williston, have bought the franchising rights to the Dickinson and Minot markets.
