PDQ staff and members of the South Lake Chamber of Commerce celebrated the arrival of PDQ at a ribbon cutting on Monday, June 5.  The eat-in, take-out restaurant, located at 1660 E. Highway 50, boasts quality food at affordable prices. All foods are prepared on site from scratch with fresh ingredients; no steroids, no hormones.  It’s open 7 days a week from 10:30 am – 10 pm.

PDQ is a corporate-owned restaurant chain with headquarters in Tampa.  The co-founders, Bob Basham, former co-founder of Outback Steakhouse; and Nick Reader, former CFO of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, opened the first PDQ in Tampa in 2011.  Since then the chain has rapidly grown to 56 locations in eight states, Clermont #56.
