Captain D’s, the leading fast casual seafood restaurant, announced the opening of its newest franchised restaurant in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This opening, marking the brand’s 31st location in the state, emphasizes Captain D’s accelerated franchise and corporate development plans for South Carolina. The brand celebrated grand openings in several cities across the state in the past year, including Spartanburg, Boiling Springs, Hartsville, Lexington and Easley.
The opening in Myrtle Beach comes on the heels of the outstanding success Captain D’s has experienced in 2016, closing out the third quarter of the year with its 20th consecutive quarter of positive growth, generating a 2.8 percent system-wide same store sales increase. Additionally, Captain D’s is on track for its fourth successive year of achieving record high system-wide AUV and its sixth consecutive year of same store sales increases.
With 518 restaurants in 21 states, Captain D’s is the fast-casual seafood leader and number one seafood franchise in America ranked by average unit volume. The company is currently seeking single- and multi-unit operators to join in the brand’s rapid expansion.
