Random information on the term “PDQ”:
PDQ Food Stores was a chain of convenience stores located in the Wisconsin areas of Milwaukee and Madison, and one California store near Homewood.
The chain began as Tri Dairy Store in 1948 in Middleton, Wisconsin, opened by Sam Jacobsen. Originally the store carried only dairy products, but Jacobsen added other grocery products as time went on, and business improved. The second store didn’t come along until 1962; the name PDQ, an acronym for “pretty darn quick” or “pretty damn quick”, was a popular catch phrase in the post-World War II era, and the name was suggested by Jacobsen’s wife Mary. The original store soon adopted the name as well.
As of January 2016, PDQ Food Stores numbered 34 locations. Most sold gasoline, as is common with modern convenience stores. On May 1, 2009, PDQ Food Stores was sold to the employees and was 100% employee owned.
On July 19, 2017, Kwik Trip Stores signed an agreement to acquire the assets of PDQ Food Stores. The acquisition was completed on October 9th, 2017, and Kwik Trip remodeled and re-imaged the existing PDQ locations over the following weeks.
Random information on the term “ASAP”:
A.S.a.P. were a band created by guitarist and vocalist Adrian Smith of Iron Maiden. A.S.a.P. released an album in 1989 entitled Silver and Gold. A.S.a.P. stands for “Adrian Smith and Project”, and the full name of the band is incorporated within the band logo, with each word written in tiny font underneath the corresponding letter in the abbreviation.
Adrian Smith formed the band in 1989 when Iron Maiden was taking a year break after spending almost a year on the road for the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album tour in 1988. The band had its origin in Urchin, a band Smith fronted in the 1970s. Andy Barnett, Dave Colwell and Richard Young played with Smith in various incarnations of Urchin, which was disbanded in 1981 when Smith joined Iron Maiden.
Further foundations for the band were laid out in late 1985 when Iron Maiden were taking a break after their massive world tour in support of their album Powerslave. Bored with the lull in band’s activity as they prepared to record a new album, Adrian Smith and Nicko McBrain started playing on their own to pass the time, and they soon formed a full band which included Colwell and Barnett. Along with some other musicians they knew, they went to play a one-off gig at London’s Marquee Club in 1986, under the name of “The Entire Population of Hackney”. At the show, the band performed mostly original material, including the songs “Silver and Gold” (which would later become the title track of their only album, “Fighting Man”, “School Days” and “When She’s Gone” (all of which would later be recorded by A.S.a.P. and released as B-sides to its singles) at the show, as well as three songs that would later be recorded by Iron Maiden (“Juanita”, “Reach Out” and “That Girl”).
