Current free agent quarterback Tim Tebow does not have an NFL job right now, but that doesn’t mean the former New England Patriots quarterback hasn’t kept himself busy, as teams like the Rams, Chicago Bears, Browns and Buccaneers have not needed his services, but instead he has been focusing on opening his PDQ restaurant in Jacksonville.
According to the Jacksonville Business Journal, Tebow is gearing up to open his first area restaurant in Jacksonville on November 3, the first PDQ in the area and it is expected to create jobs and should be a very solid business investment, as Tebow is a heroic figure in his hometown. Tebow may or may not be at the restaurant for the opening and Tebow and his brother could be looking into another location in the area as well. The People Dedicated to Quality restaurant offers a wide range of options, including chicken sandwiches, salads, tenders and milkshakes as well as other items and Tebow will use his local celebrity to help with the promotion.
Tebow of course won national championships at Florida and he also was a star in Jacksonville, as he played at Nease High School and led them to a championship season as well. Tebow had a rough go of it last year with the New York Jets and while he got another chance with the New England Patriots, obviously that didn’t last very long and now he is looking for his next opportunity.
Tebow will have plenty of job offers outside of football, but that is what he wants to be doing and while the restaurant business could end up being very financially successful, Tebow is hoping that he could get another chance to play quarterback in the NFL. Tebow played with the Denver Broncos and led the team to the playoffs and a win in the postseason over the Steelers, but once Peyton Manning was signed he was shipped out to the Jets and now he must be wondering what would have happened had he been traded to the Jaguars instead of New York.
Tebow is investing in the chain with Vinny Testaverde in H2 Restaurant Partners LLC and Tebow should be able to get the location going with just his popularity in the area.
