PDQ Again Named One of QSR's Best Brands to Work For

Nov 15

For the second year in a row, PDQ has been named one of the Best Brands to Work For in the annual survey by QSR Magazine. The publication polled restaurant brands and outside pundits for submissions, and then used a panel of industry experts to make their picks. 

QSR Magazine said about the winners: "These chains have positioned themselves as employers of choice thanks to an emphasis on culture, wages, and a supreme focus on the employee."
PDQ was mentioned for numerous reasons, including its focus on its Team Members and preparing them for success, whether with the corporate structure or their post-PDQ lives.

A few excerpts from PDQ's award:

 - One of the chicken chain’s benefits, for instance, is a scholarship program that invites and encourages employees to continue their education and career building in areas they’re most passionate about.

- PDQ recently unveiled a collective group of team members called "PDQ Champions" to provide feedback on behalf of their stores and to share insight.

-  According to analysis of Glassdoor data from financial services company William Blair, 71 percent of employees at PDQ said they’d recommend their job to a friend. In fact, the fast casual took the top overall rate for the first time, moving up from No. 7 in 2021. The overall employee rating of 3.9 (based on reviews) shared the top spot. PDQ also finished top 2 in culture and values (4.), senior management (3.5), career opportunities (3.6), and diversity and was No. 3 in diversity and inclusion (4.2).
