At PDQ, we’re People Dedicated to Quality. But mostly, we’re committed to you. During 2009 our Founders, Bob and Nick, were hungry to build a new kind of restaurant. One that makes people the main objective, and quality the bottom line. Bob was searching for fresh flavor and inspiration, and Nick wanted a place that served fresh, fast food he felt good about feeding to his kids.
So they hit the street and (lucky for all of us) found just what they were hoping to find in North Carolina. An amiable down-home neighborhood joint called Tenders using the tastiest, freshest, made-from-scratch chicken tenders. They made a deal on the spot with mom and pop, and in 2011 opened the initial PDQ Menu Prices in Tampa, Florida. Best road trip, ever.
Bob and Nick knew that they had something great at the opening of our own first Tampa restaurant on Halloween weekend. Car lines wrapped round the building, and folks kept coming back for additional.
From the beginning, Bob and Nick believed food ought to be fresh, fast and affordable. They believed in working with good people. And, they believed in unwavering quality and hospitality.
It’s what makes us People Focused on Quality. It’s not just words. It’s our passion and our purpose. As well as in everything perform, it reflects our persistence for you.
