Just Made, Better means more than great food and ingredients. Giving back is a part of who we are, and we're committed to building deep roots around each of our stores.

We believe in giving military personnel, first-responders, and teachers the special treatment. And, we commit time and money to supporting charities, schools, little league and high school sports teams, and students.

Every PDQ restaurant participates in hundreds of initiatives each year — Fundraising Nights, Community events, PDQ Fundraising cards and more — to benefit local organizations.

Since our inception, PDQ has donated nearly $6 million and in-kind donations to local charities across the country, including groups like Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Best Buddies, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs, the Bullard Family Foundation, Children’s Cancer Center, Duke Children's Hospital, the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Gigi's Playhouse, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Make a Wish, Making Strides for Breast Cancer, Metropolitan Ministries, Muscular Dystrophy Association, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Relay for Life, Ronald McDonald House, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Smile Train, St. Baldrick's Foundation, the V Foundation for Cancer Research and Young Life.

And, we’re just getting started.

To us, our community is our home. It’s where our Guests live. It’s where we work. And it’s why we exist: to help make each of our local communities just, better.
