New Fast Food Restaurant in Tega Cay?
I imagine you, like me, are curious about the new fast food restaurant under construction at Gray Stone Crossing Shopping Center in Tega Cay (Hwy 160 between Dam Rd and Stonecrest Blvd). I have not found anyone directly familiar with PDQ. I know the Fort Mill Times sent out a Tweet a while back asking anybody for info on PDQ. Here is what I have been able to find about PDQ via my internet research.
PDQ Fresh Food Fast restaurant is a new concept restaurant developed and owned by the Captiva Restaurant Group together with Robert Basham (co-founder of Outback Steak House). Captiva’s partners Mike Vaughn, Joe Douglas and Chris Carlsen own and operate the small chain of 131 Main restaurants in Cornelius and Charlotte. Their always fresh concept (they don’t own a freezer) at 131 Main units is part of the PDQ’s fresh food concept claiming food is never frozen. The group decided to expand the PDQ concept after success with the first PDQ type unit in Cornelius NC called Tenders Fresh Food.
Info from a real estate marketing listing claims PDQ’s menu will be a simple offering of chicken tenders and sandwiches, turkey pork tenderloin sandwiches, fries, milkshakes, and fruit. PDQ estimates opening in September. As you can see in the first picture, a sign company was putting the last sign up yesterday evening.
By the way, the .084 AC PDQ site is being marketed for sale (ground lease) as an investment by Berkeley Capital Advisors LLC for $950,210.
PDQ is located at 2435 SC Highway 160, Tega Cay, SC 29708
