PDQ History

PDQ was founded in 2011 in Tampa, Florida, by former Outback Steak House founder Bob Basham, and current CEO Rick Reader. PDQ originally stood for Pretty Damn Quick, but the company changed its mind fairly early and now states it means People Dedicated to Quality.

The company operates a chain of casual restaurants serving chicken, turkey, sandwiches, and salads. Currently, there are 55 locations, all company owned, in 8 states, with plans for expansion. Basham claims that each location averages $3 million in annual revenue.

PDQ is perhaps best known for their drive thrus that have no speakers for ordering in advance. Food is prepared when it is ordered and not even a few minutes before. Employees quickly discover that restaurants do not have freezers. Ingredients are delivered daily and products are always fresh, not frozen.

I work at pdq on Seminole Blvd and Park Blvd 7400 the store # is 420 . For the last few days my manager has been using profound language towards me . I have one manager telling me to go home and then him calling me back at 9 pm using profanity at me and telling me to come back and close . I did go and close got there 9:45 or so and closed went home . Next day I’m told I can’t help a guest with there order and was yelled at for doing what I was supposed to do as in helping one of our guests to whom had been there with receipt in hand for half an hour and hadn’t received there food .

Went to PDQ here in Ocala fl. after January 1st. Was very disappointed. Found out, PDQ headquarters change their menu. One of the items that was removed from the menu was the turkey breast sandwich. It was one of the best sandwiches on the menu. Manager said it was a low seller. Now, all you have is hamburgers & chicken. I don’t eat red meat & chicken I cook at home. My friend & I will go to the RED Robin. Even though they sell hamburgers. they also carry turkey burgers for customers that don’t eat red meat. Lost a good customer & many of my friends are also disappointed.

I was at PDQ madison and im pissed. I slipped on what seems to be laundry detergent right in front of door. There is no direct contact number that actually is valid. By falling I had to take rest of day off because im covered in liquid soap of some kind. This will be addressed

I was completely embarrassed by your staff Hilli Yalo at your Pompano location today. I was stort bu two pennies. She had the nerve to tell me make sure you are short next time. Mind you I come to this location almost every other day for lunch. Usually I have my debit-card with me today left it on my desk after I just paid some bills. I was short of 2 cents from $8.89, the manager was no help to me either. Needless PDQ just lost a loyal customer over 2 cents.

I need my w2 form from when I worked there . I started in may of 2014 and left in January of 2016 . I’ve reached out to employees as well as managers at the restaurant that I know that still work there and have got no where with them. I worked at the hickory location in North Carolina. My home address is Conover NC 28613 and my home phone number is 828855XXXX . Please help me in getting this so I can file my taxes for that year . Thank you
