At PDQ, we’re People Dedicated to Quality. But mostly, we’re committed to you.

In 2009 our Founders, Bob and Nick, were hungry to build a new kind of restaurant. One that makes people the focus, and quality the bottom line.

Bob was in search of 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 road and (lucky for us) found just what they were looking for in North Carolina. A friendly down-home neighborhood joint called Tenders with the tastiest, freshest, made-from-scratch chicken tenders. They made a deal on the spot with mom and pop, and in 2011 opened the first PDQ in Tampa, Florida. Best road trip, ever.

Bob and Nick knew they had something special at the opening of our first Tampa restaurant on Halloween weekend. Car lines wrapped around the building, and folks kept coming back for more.

From the beginning, Bob and Nick believed food should 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 Dedicated to Quality. It’s not just words. It’s our passion and our purpose. And in everything we do, it reflects our commitment to you.
