LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville's Dickey's Barbecue Pit is no more.

Two stores have opened in the last three years on Hubbards Lane in St. Matthews and on Linn Station Road, but the owner of both locations said it was costing him too much to stay open because of the company's business model.

He also said 69 other locations have closed since January.

Dallas-based Dickey's Barbecue Pit specializes in slow-smoked Texas barbecue in a fast-casual environment.
