Captain D's opening in former Jack in the Box location

Captain D's is converting a former Jack in the Box restaurant to a franchised location in Gun Barrel City, Texas. Located at 1380 W. Main St., the restaurant marks the brand's 19th Texas location and third for Franchisee Sajib Singha of Bonham Foods LLC, which owns eight Dairy Queens, two Golden Chicks, two Papa John's and one Schlotzsky's.

"Since adding Captain D's to my portfolio, I've been consistently blown away by the brand's high level of support and expertise, which has only reinforced my confidence as I set out to achieve my aggressive growth goals," he said in a company press release. "When I came to the team wanting to convert a former Jack in the Box into my newest location in Gun Barrel City, they jumped right in and made the entire process seamless from start to finish.

"With my first two restaurants in Bonham and Mount Pleasant performing exceptionally well, there's no doubt that Texas is an ideal market for Captain D's, and we look forward to our continued growth and success with the brand for many years to come."

Captain D's, which has opened Texas locations in Burnet, Stephenville, Plano, Garland and Houston, will expand its Texas footprint by opening 14 restaurants throughout the greater Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas over the next several years.

"Texas has remained a priority development market for us knowing the positive performance our existing locations have had and seeing firsthand how well our brand resonates among residents and visitors alike," Brad Reed, Captain D's chief development officer, said in the release. "Building off the momentum we've achieved in recent years, we'll continue to grow our presence throughout the state with experienced and knowledgeable franchisees like Sajib who have a keen understanding of their trade areas and the needs of their communities. Sajib has been fundamental to our ongoing success in North Texas and we are thrilled to be opening another restaurant with him in such a short span of time."

Captain D's Grows Presence in Florida With Opening of New Restaurant in Palatka

Leading Fast Casual Seafood Brand Continues to Target Florida for Development As It Expands Footprint Across the Southeast

Captain D's Grows Presence in Florida With Opening of New Restaurant in PalatkaNashville, TN  (RestaurantNews.comCaptain D’s, the nation’s leading fast casual seafood restaurant, announced today the opening of its newest franchised location in Palatka, Florida. Located at 200 State Road 19, the Palatka restaurant marks Captain D’s eighth location in Northeast Florida and 32nd overall in the state. Following openings in South Carolina and Louisiana earlier this year, the new Florida restaurant showcases Captain D’s steady growth across the Southeast region, with an additional location slated to open in Oak Grove, Kentucky next month.

The new Palatka location is open for drive-thru, carry out, and call ahead ordering with contactless curbside pick-up only; the dining room will remain closed for the immediate future to help with the safety of guests and team members. Online ordering at, as well as third-party delivery will be available at a later date. Additionally, Captain D’s has enhanced its standard employee food safety protocol to now include single-use dining items, sanitation procedures deployed every 30 minutes, the installment of plexiglass barriers between guests and cashiers, employee health screenings, among other measures.

Behind Captain D’s recent Florida growth are restaurant industry veterans, Wanda Davis and Toks Achebe of Crossroads Portfolio, Inc. Although first-time Captain D’s franchisees, Davis and Achebe bring over 17 years of franchise industry expertise to the fast casual seafood brand, previously owning and operating Bojangles’ and McDonald’s restaurants throughout Georgia. While plotting the construction of their new restaurant, the duo worked closely with Captain D’s real estate and development teams, as well as Putnam County officials to restructure the restaurant prototype’s layout in order to preserve 200-year-old oak trees located on the property. Following careful planning, Davis and Achebe are ready to debut their Palatka location.

“Drawing on nearly two decades of experience in restaurant operations, Toks and I knew from the start that Captain D’s was the perfect fit to expand our portfolio into the fast casual seafood segment. Since signing our agreement last year, the brand has supported us every step of the way, particularly in pivoting our construction plans and reconfiguring our restaurant’s footprint to salvage a piece of Putnam County’s history,” said Wanda Davis. “It is extremely rewarding to see the end product – made possible by Captain D’s talented teams, as well as the flexible prototype options it made available to us – and we’re excited to continue being an active member of our new community, bringing Captain D’s fresh seafood to another corner of Northeast Florida.”

Since launching its development strategy for Florida a few years ago, Captain D’s has experienced tremendous success growing its footprint in key markets throughout the state. The brand opened a new restaurant in Union Park earlier this year following the debut of its first South Florida location in Belle Glade last August. Fueled by this compounding success, Captain D’s continues to identify the state as a prime market for franchise development and, in addition to the northern and southern regions of the state, is targeting key areas throughout Central Florida including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Bradenton and Orlando for future development.

“As a state surrounded by water, seafood naturally resonates with Florida residents, making it an ideal development market for our brand. With existing Florida locations consistently reporting positive sales, our unique proposition in the fast casual segment coupled with the quality of our product and reasonable prices, continues to attract best-in-class restaurant operators like Wanda and Toks who are eager to capitalize on the tremendous opportunity our brand has here,” said Brad Reed, chief development officer of Captain D’s. “Wanda and Toks’ community-first mentality directly reflects Captain D’s brand values, and it has been a pleasure working with them to create development solutions to best serve the Palatka community. We look forward serving residents here for many years to come.”

The Captain D’s in Palatka is open Sunday – Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Call ahead orders can be placed by calling 386-530-2036.

With more than 530 restaurants in 23 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. For more information about franchise opportunities, visit or call 800-314-4819.

Captain D’s announced the opening of its newest franchised location in Memphis, Tennessee. Located at 9607 Highway 64, the new restaurant marks Captain D’s 10th Memphis location and 74th overall in the brand’s home state of Tennessee. Throughout 2020, Captain D’s continued to prioritize its development in the Southeast, opening new locations in Oak Grove, Kentucky; Shreveport, Louisiana; Palatka, Florida, and Lancaster, South Carolina, and will continue with its development plans in the new year starting with the Memphis opening.

Driving Captain D’s Tennessee expansion is multi-unit franchisee and restaurant industry veteran, Joe Springer, operating partner of Nufish, LLC. With nearly two decades of restaurant experience, Springer has become one of Captain D’s largest multi-unit franchisees since first signing on with the brand in 2009. Over the course of 12 years, Nufish has grown Captain D’s presence throughout Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee, with the new Memphis restaurant marking the operating group’s 19th location.

“I’ve spent over a decade of my career as a Captain D’s multi-unit franchisee and each year I am even more blown away by the ample support that the brand provides us. Coming off of 2020, Captain D’s proved to its operators that it is an unshakable legacy brand with a sustainable and trusted franchise model,” says Joe Springer. “It is an honor to kick off Captain D’s 2021 development with a fresh start and continue to grow alongside the brand in Memphis, a community Nufish has been dedicated to serving since we first joined Captain D’s in 2009.”

Since the first Captain D’s restaurant opened in Nashville in 1969, the Southeast has remained a key region for the brand’s long-term growth. Building upon the brand’s foundation established in the Southeast, Captain D’s pushed into neighboring regions such as the Midwest, expanding across Michigan, Illinois and Missouri just last year. Looking ahead, Captain D’s plans to sustain its sprawling footprint by opening restaurants in new markets across Texas, Florida, Louisiana, and as far west as Utah.

“Multi-unit owners and operators like the group at Nufish have been an integral part of our sustained success and growth, even in the most trying of times for the restaurant industry. We value the synergetic relationship we have with our trusted franchisees and, therefore, will continue to help fuel their success in whatever capacity we can moving into this new year,” adds Brad Reed, chief development officer of Captain D’s. “As we focus on growth from Florida to Texas and everywhere in-between, that mentality will remain the same to foster the relationships with our existing franchisees and onboard new operators.”

Captain D's

U.S.-based restaurant chain

Captain D's is an American fast casual restaurant chain that specializes in seafood and is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee. The chain was founded as Mr. D's Seafood and Hamburgers by Raymond L. Danner Sr. on August 15, 1969, in Donelson, Tennessee. The chain is currently owned by private-equity firmSentinel Capital Partners. Captain D's has more than 500 locations in the United States.[1][2]


Mr. D's Seafood and Hamburgers opened in 1969 after entrepreneur, owner of Danner Foods and KFC franchisee Raymond L. Danner Sr. was unable to expand the territory of his Shoney's Big Boy Restaurants franchise. The franchise was limited to 11 states in the Southeast. In 1971, Danner and his Shoney's co-founder Alex Schoenbaum completed a merger between Shoney's and Danner Foods and named their new company Shoney’s Big Boy Enterprises. In 1975, Danner was president of the company, which announced the renaming of Mr. D's Seafood and Hamburgers as "Captain D's" and the launch of a national franchising program. By this time, Captain D's menu was edited to focus on seafood and side dishes, and the chain had expanded to 32 locations that earned more than $10 million annually. In 1976, Captain D's was held by the rebranded Shoney's Inc., after Danner and Schoenbaum sold the Big Boy trademark to Marriott Corporation.[1][3][5][6][7][8]

Throughout the 1970s, the company grew rapidly and added special programs like the Kids' Birthday Club and children's comic books. During the 1980s and 1990s, the company's logo and building design evolved.[9]

On September 13, 2010, Phil Greifeld was appointed CEO of Captain D's.[10]

Throughout 2016, Captain D's experienced a surge of franchise and corporate development, with 13 new locations opened, along with numerous development agreements signed to open additional restaurants. This ongoing growth expanded the brand's presence, including in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.[11]

Racial discrimination lawsuit[edit]

In April 1989, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund filed a class-action lawsuit against Danner and more than 200 other Shoney's Inc. officials for allegedly implementing discriminatory policies against Black people who sought employment or were then employed with Shoney's Inc. restaurants—Shoney's, Captain D's, Lee's Famous Recipe Chicken, Pargo's and the Fifth Quarter. Nine former employees and job applicants of Shoney's Inc. restaurants sought more than $500 million as well as an affirmative action plan authorized by the court to prevent discriminatory policies in the future. In November 1992, Captain D's was involved in the $105 million settlement of the racial discrimination case against then-parent company Shoney's Inc. and Danner agreed to contribute $65 million of the company's stock toward the settlement amount. The settlement was awarded to the more than 40,000 former, then-current and prospective restaurant employees who claimed they were discriminated against or were ordered to engage in discriminatory practices between February 1988 and April 1991.[12][13][14][15][16]


In January 2005, Sagittarius Brand, Inc. acquired Captain D's for $150 million. To gain capital, the holding company sold Captain D's to buyout firm Sun Capital Partners, Inc in 2010.[17][18][19]

After Spectrum Restaurant Group Inc. filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2006, Captain D's bought its restaurant chain Grandy's as a subsidiary.[20][21]

In 2013, Sun Capital Partners Inc. sold Captain D's to its affiliate, Centre Partners Management.[22]

In 2017, Captain D's was procured by Sentinel Capital Partners.[23]


Captain D's offers fried fish, shrimp, lobster, crab and chicken meals, platters and sandwiches. The fish and shrimp options come grilled or fried. The appetizers include fried mozzarella sticks, jalapeño poppers, clam strips and butterfly shrimp. The side dishes include coleslaw, French fries, green beans, okra, broccoli, baked potato, corn, mac & cheese and hush puppies. The dessert menu includes cheesecake and funnel cake stix.[24]

In 2019, PepsiCo announced that it would partner with Captain D's as its only beverage supplier.[25]

As of 2021, Captain D's restaurants are sourced by 60 food suppliers.[26]


In 2020, Captain D's announced its Express prototype, a 960-square-foot building model with drive-thru and walkup windows only. The first Express unit was set to open in College Park, Georgia, in 2021.[27][28]

In 2021, Captain D's announced the debut of its double drive-thru in Tupelo, Mississippi.[29]
