Captain D’s, the nation’s leading fast casual seafood restaurant, announced that it achieved significant growth and success in its 50th year, opening 15 new locations and signing eight franchise development agreements with new and existing franchisees to expand its brand footprint throughout the Southeast, Midwest and Utah. This surge in franchise development, coupled with the brand’s longstanding history and compounding success over the past several years, reinforces Captain D’s as the leader of the fast casual seafood segment, supported by the brand’s commitment to innovation and strong unit-level economics. In 2019, Captain D’s achieved another year of comp sales and AUV growth.
As a result of its tremendous development success in 2019, Captain D’s will open many new restaurants over the next several years in key markets like Southern Florida and Illinois, and is positioned for substantial growth in 2020. On the heels of its latest corporate opening in Union Park, Florida earlier this month, the brand is projected to open 25 additional locations throughout the year, including its first restaurants in Michigan and Utah. Looking ahead, the company is continuing to focus its efforts on corporate and franchise development in target markets throughout the South and Midwest, including Central/Southern Florida, Texas and Wisconsin.
