Captain D’s, a fast-casual seafood restaurant chain headquartered in Nashville, opened a new location, a conversion of a Taco Bell restaurant, in Brooksville on Sept. 14.
It’s the second such conversion in Hernando County this summer, following the July opening of a Captain D’s in Spring Hill that had been a Burger King restaurant, according to a news release. Both are company-owned stores.
“Florida has traditionally been a very strong market for Captain D’s, but the response we have received from the Spring Hill community has surpassed our expectations,” Captain D’s Chief Development Officer Brad Reed states in the release. “We could not be happier with our momentum there and look forward to doing the same in Brooksville. We are seeing a lot of real estate opportunity right now on the west coast of the state, particularly in areas like Ocala and Lakeland, which we have targeted for future development.”
Captain D’s next company-owned Gulf Coast restaurant, the release states, will be in New Port Richey.
With more than 530 restaurants in 23 states, Captain D’s is the No. 1 seafood franchise in the United States ranked by average unit volume, according to the release. Information about franchise opportunities is available at CaptainDsFranchising.com or by calling 800-314-4819.
