New business roundup: Dickey’s Barbecue, Bike Hub, Fire Artisan Pizza

View Larger Map

Let's catch up on new business openings in Spokane and the environs:

As reported yesterday on the SR's Too Many Cooks blog, Texas-based barbecue retailer Dickey's Barbecue Restaurant opens a Spokane location on Friday.

The franchise business will be at 12628 N. Division (phone number: 465-9999). It's filling the spot vacated by Camino Real.

The first 100 customers at the 11 a.m. opening receive a free pulled pork sandwich.

It will be open daily from 11 a.m.-9 p.m.  There are roughly 270 Dickey's nationwide.

Bike Hub plans second location

The Bike Hub will open a second Spokane store at 1405 W. First Ave., in the space vacated by Two Wheel Transit, which moved to the South Perry District. It plans to open March 1.

The Spokane Valley  Bike Hub is about four years old. Owner Chris Andreasen decided the time was right to add a new shop near downtown, said Valley manager Morgan Johnson.

Johnson said Bike Hub is remodeling the store, which comes to about 6,000 square feet including the basement and main floor.

Fire Artisan Pizza comes to Spokane

Sometime next week, owners of Coeur d’Alene’s Fire Artisan Pizza will open a downtown Spokane eatery with the same name.  It's taking the former Moxie spot at 806 W. Sprague Ave. Co-owner Paul Cartee said the goal is opening the week of Jan. 21.

Cartee said the improvements will change the appearance of the restaurant “totally.” Seating will be either at a counter or at a number of tables. Capacity will be around 45 seats.

His two partners are Doug Johnson and John Cardosa.
