Two of my favorites (PDQ and 4 Rivers) have joined forces on one awesome sandwich
Florida’s leading award-winning barbecue restaurant concept, has teamed up with PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality), one of the nation’s fastest growing quick-casual restaurant brands, to introduce a specialty sandwich available this September and October.
4 Rivers’ Chef-Owner, John Rivers, created the chef-inspired sandwich to be served exclusively at 19 PDQ locations throughout North and Central Florida from Sept. 15 through Oct. 31. Proceeds from the sandwich will benefit the 4R Foundation, established in 2015 to advance the ministry and donation efforts of the 4R Restaurant Group.
Rivers worked with PDQ owners, Bob Basham and Nick Reader, to incorporate 4 Rivers’ homemade Signature and Mustard Barbecue Sauces and fresh ingredients into this one-of-a-kind collaboration sandwich for PDQ, appropriately named the 4 Rivers Smokehouse Sandwich.
“We are thrilled to partner with PDQ on the Smokehouse Sandwich in support of the 4R Foundation,” said Rivers. “Each of our concepts are founded on shared beliefs – we value giving back to others through charitable endeavors and pride ourselves on offering quality food to those we serve. The partnership seemed like a natural fit and we are excited to spread the word about dining with purpose.”
The sandwich includes PDQ’s never-frozen, crispy, 100-percent natural chicken breast dipped in a blend of 4 Rivers Signature Barbecue sauces. It’s topped with pepper jack cheese and Pederson’s all-natural cherry smoked bacon. The tasty sandwich is served on a brioche bun with fresh avocado herb sauce and shredded cabbage.
PDQ has one location in the Orlando area -- up in Sanford -- if you're dying to taste it like I am.
