For me, the biggest difference between PDQ and Chick – fil-A is that PDQ offers more of a gourmet fried chicken service. Chick – fil-A is tends to me more of a fast food, a basic fried chicken spot. When going to PDQ , I expect something more than a basic fried chicken sandwich with some complementary pickles.
North Florida/Georgia Market Director Pam Murphy said Tuesday this will be the seventh PDQ owned by the H2 group led by Tebow and Vinny Testeverde, a former University of Miami quarterback and 21-year veteran of the NFL.
PDQ — which officially stands for People Dedicated to Quality, but is also pretty darn quick, based on my experience Thursday — is a fast-casual restaurant that serves crispy chicken tenders, handcut fries, salads and chicken sandwiches. The restaurant’s dipping sauces are all made from scratch on-site.
PDQ , a Florida-based fast-food chain specializing in chicken tenders and chicken nuggets, has closed its two Valley locations. The closures come in the wake of increased competition from chains like Popeye’s and McDonald’s that have turned their focus to chicken sandwiches.
About 80% PDQ stores are corporate owned while rest are franchisees. A typical PDQ store cost $1 million to open according to PDQ president and they plan to trim $100,000 -$150,000 off the $1 million cost for future locations.

A spokesman for PDQ , which stands for “People Dedicated to Quality,” told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Monday the closures of the Phoenix and Tempe locations are permanent. The restaurant at Cactus Road and Tatum Boulevard opened in September 2017, and the other near Priest Drive and Warner Road opened in January 2019.
“I believe in the business plan laid out by PDQ because it’s in alignment with my personal beliefs,” said Operating Director, Jim Crenshaw. “The food is fresh, made from scratch, without preservatives, no growth-hormones, no antibiotics, no MSG , no freezers and no microwaves.

According to PDQ’s allergen list, the grilled chicken salad also is gluten free , as are nearly all sauces and dressings. While not as addictive as Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries , the skin-on fries at PDQ are well seasoned and tasty.
