PDQ Closes Augusta Restaurant

December 7, 2017|

Tampa Bay-based fast food restaurant PDQ (“People Dedicated to Quality”) closed its Augusta location Wednesday, according to an email from the company and a sign on the restaurant’s door.

“We are sad to announce that we have made the very difficult decision to close our Augusta PDQ location on Washington Road today. The welfare of our team members is always a top priority and we are currently working to relocate as many of our employees to other PDQ locations, including our neighboring restaurant in Evans,” read the email.

The email also mentioned that PDQ hopes “to find another site in the area where we may be able to relocate our restaurant.”

PDQ opened its Washington Road location in March of 2016, two years after the area’s first opened in Evans in 2014. The PDQ in Evans will remain open.

PDQ has 62 restaurants in the U.S. and has become known for its chicken dishes and fresh approach to food. The restaurant makes its sauces in-house and does not use preservatives, according to a manager at the Evans PDQ. PDQ also did not use freezers for a long time as part of its dedication to high-quality, fresh meals.

PDQ in Evans is located at 4311 Washington Rd.

      How in the world do people not like this place? I’ve been over a dozen times and loves everything about the quality and service.

      The one in Evans sucks! The one in Augusta was the best. How can they close with no warning? Where am I suppose to eat. I’m gonna starve.

    Sad but it was such a poor site with the traffic. Not sure why they picked it.

      You are exactly right. When they built there before I even knew what it was, I said it would have a difficult time. Too close to interstate ramps and very difficult to get in and out.

    You can’t put a PDQ that close to a Zaxby’s and expect it to do well.

    The closing of PDQ in Augusta is extremely disappointing. Their food and service were far and above zaxbys or chick fila. I guess I will be going to Evans.

    It is the location. It outshines zaxbys because of the freshness and better service all around as well as a better product. But the location was awful! Glad to see they are looking for a new location in this area. Too far to drive to evans!
