Pink Dot, a leader in the express delivery of made-to-order meals and popular brands of supermarket products, has changed its name of 13 years to PDQuick(TM) in conjunction with the company’s national expansion. Effective August 10, 2000, Pink Dot customer fulfillment centers in Orange County will operate under the new PDQuick name. The remaining Pink Dot centers, all located in Los Angeles County, will change to the new name on August 31, 2000.
On these dates, customers will be able to order from PDQuick online by visiting www.PDQuick.com and by phone at 1-888-PDQuick almost any hour of the day and night, 365 days a week; pay using cash, check or credit card; and count on delivery to their home or office in approximately 30 minutes. Customers can also expect the same friendly, dependable service that helped build Pink Dot into a Southern California success story.
In addition, customers will be able to order from an expanded menu of freshly prepared meals, which for the first time includes fried chicken, and an ever-growing selection of thousands of popular brand name products found in supermarkets.
Dan Frederickson, PDQuick’s Chief Executive, said, “The new name better reflects our commitment to customers to provide just about anything they want in a hurry in minutes. It also represents an important milestone in our 13-year operating history as we position ourselves to dominate this business on a national basis.”
In July 2000, PDQuick received $35 million from its investors to fund its expansion into new consumer markets around the country. An experienced executive team and board members from such well-known retailing and restaurant innovators as Kinko’s, Pizza Hut and Circle K are spearheading the company’s national expansion plans.
