PDQ Closes Augusta Restaurant
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.
