Multi-Unit Operator Expands the Fast Casual Seafood Leader’s Presence in Colorado
Captain D’s, the nation’s leading fast casual seafood restaurant, recently announced the opening of its newest franchised location in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Located at 4441 Integrity Center Point, this restaurant marks the first new Captain D’s to open in Colorado since the 1990’s. The new Colorado Springs location is owned and operated by existing multi-unit operator and Vietnam War Army veteran, Lester Nowell, who has been a Captain D’s franchisee since 1986 and currently owns five restaurants throughout the greater Colorado Springs region.
Captain D’s reignited growth in Colorado comes on the heels of a successful 2018, in which the brand rolled out a new royalty incentive program and achieved its highest average number of units signed in three years. The opening of the new Colorado Springs restaurant is a direct reflection of how years of continuous success have fueled a surge in franchise development from both new and existing franchisees and accelerated its expansion throughout the U.S.
In the past year, the company has opened more than a dozen new locations and inked numerous franchise development agreements to open new restaurants in states like Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, North Carolina, Illinois, Michigan and Oklahoma. With more than 530 restaurants in 22 states, Captain D’s is the fast-casual seafood leader and number one seafood franchise in America ranked by average unit volume. With these efforts, Captain D’s has remained true to what it does best — serving high-quality seafood with warm hospitality at an affordable price in a welcoming atmosphere.
