About Us

PDQ, which stands for People Dedicated to Quality, is a fast casual restaurant specializing in fresh hand-battered chicken tenders, made-to-order sandwiches, daily cut fries, hand-spun milkshakes and fresh salads.

Former Outback Steakhouse co-founder Bob Basham and MVP Holdings CEO Nick Reader are the two principal owners of PDQ. The partners spent more than two years developing the concept behind the brand and the quality of the food and establishments. On October 30, 2011, the original PDQ restaurant opened its doors across from Plant High School in Tampa, Florida.

PDQ was founded on a concept that high-quality food, memorable service and genuine hospitality are the basis of an excellent restaurant. PDQ values genuine customer service, whether dining in or picking up at the drive-thru. We are committed to doing the things we do the right way.

PDQ is known for fresh hand-breaded chicken tenders but our commitment to quality fresh food doesn?t stop there. We pride ourselves on delicious sandwiches and salads made with the finest ingredients. Our signature sauces and dressings are homemade everyday. Our fries are fresh-cut right in the restaurant, you can even see our masters at work from the drive-thru. Hand-spun milkshakes round out the perfect meal. All menu items are made to order and we believe fresh high-quality food can be served fast, at a price you?ll love.

We offer Fresh Tours daily and would enjoy showing you how we cook fresh!
