Thursday only: Brown shoes = free chicken tenders at PDQ

in Uncategorized by

Want some free chicken tenders this Thursday? Super. Just wear your brown shoes to PDQ and you’re good to go.

Apparently Thursday is national Brown Shoes Day (that’s a thing) and PDQ is honoring it by handing out delicious battered and fried chicken tenders. Yum.

It doesn’t matter what kind of shoes – new, old, flip-flops, loafers, tennis shoes, brand name, generic – just so long as they’re brown. Light brown, dark brown, in between brown. Doesn’t matter. There’s free chicken in it.

Don’t get greedy, though; only one order of free chicken tenders per brown shoe-clad customer.

No purchase necessary.

PDQ is located in St. Pete in the 4500 block of Fourth Street. There are also locations in South Tampa, Riverview, Carollwood and Brandon. The food chain is considered “fast casual” and serves, in addition to chicken tenders, sandwiches and salads.
