Hickory River Smokehouse to Stage Grand Opening Event
at The Streets of Woodfield in Schaumburg
June 6- 9, 2013

MAY 28, 2013— Grand opening festivities for the new Hickory River Smokehouse in Schaumburg will be highlighted by Dollar Menu specials beginning June 6 through June 9. Also planned for the opening weekend will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, giveaways, festivities for children and adults alike and much more.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10:30 on June 6 and will be officiated by Village of Schaumburg President Al Larson, along with the Schaumburg Business Association. Following the ribbon cutting, the restaurant will officially open its doors to the public by offering special Dollar Menu items. These items feature the restaurant’s award winning pulled pork and Texas-style “dry rubbed” baby back ribs. These items will be available at the special price of one dollar through 9pm on Sunday, June 9 when the restaurant concludes its Grand Opening festivities.
Also on hand throughout the weekend will be Dale Obrochta, better known as the Magical Balloon dude. Dale is known for his amazing balloon figures as well as his ability to entertain a crowd. There will also be drawings for barbecue gift cards throughout the weekend.

B&D Texas Barbecue, LLC, who owns the Schaumburg franchise, opened their first Hickory River restaurant in 2010 in the nearby suburb of Glendale Heights. Based on its success, great reviews and constant requests to open another location closer to the popular suburb, the decision was an easy one when the Streets of Woodfield site became available.

“We’re growing and in today’s economy, this says a lot about the quality of our food,” said David Huff, CEO of B&D Texas Barbecue. “We know we have the best barbecue in the Northwest suburbs…maybe in all of Chicagoland, which is why we are so excited about the Streets of Woodfield in Schaumburg,” he added. Huff commented that B&D Texas Barbecue is committed to expanding in the Chicagoland area.

The new Schaumburg location will offer fast-casual dining and carry-out with a special emphasis on corporate deliveries. Hickory River Smokehouse is a Midwest-based chain that features Real Texas Barbecue with other locations in central Illinois and Ohio.
