Captain D’s announced its newest Georgia location in the Atlanta suburb of Norcross officially opened on June 3. Located at 6859 Jimmy Carter Blvd., the new Norcross restaurant marks Captain D’s 25th Atlanta area restaurant and 104th restaurant overall in the Peach state. On the heels of its opening in Pooler earlier this year, Captain D’s continues to accelerate its momentum in the state, with two additional restaurants slated to open throughout this year, including in Hazelhurst later this month.
Leading Captain D’s Atlanta area expansion are multi-unit franchisees Ali and Anil Dossani. Leveraging their previous experience owning and operating Steak and Shakes, the duo joined Captain D’s a year ago with their first location in the Atlanta suburb of Acworth. Within a year of opening their first Captain D’s restaurant, the Dossanis have already opened their second restaurant in Norcross and plan to sustain the brand’s massive Atlanta area presence with an additional Kennesaw restaurant slated for 2020.
“We’ve experienced a tremendous wave of support from Captain D’s following our Acworth opening, which enabled us to quickly open an additional location and continue fueling our success in the Atlanta area,” says Ali Dossani. “As it stands, Captain D’s has an incredible network of locations throughout the state of Georgia and we’re honored to help further expansion efforts within the state’s largest city. In addition to our existing locations, we plan to open up shop in Kennesaw next year as we grow our footprint in this market and continue serving high-quality seafood to the community.”
Throughout the past year, Captain D’s 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. To date, nearly 80 percent of all restaurants have been reimaged to the brand’s new vibrant, coastal design.
Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., Captain D’s has more than 530 restaurants in 22 states.
