Captain D’s Seafood Kitchen, the nation’s No. 2 seafood chain, is looking to San Antonio, Texas, for expansion beyond its Nashville roots. A southern favorite, Captain D’s is owned by Nashville-based Sagittarius Brands.

“San Antonio is an ideal market for Captain D’s. San Antonio diners enjoy seafood and Captain D’s provides an alternative seafood experience with a focus on quality,” says Rick Hedreen, franchise recruiting director for Sagittarius Brands.

According to Hedreen, the chain is seeking experienced restaurateurs to open as many as 10 new restaurants in the area. Hedreen will be meeting with prospective franchisees in San Antonio from November 7 and 8.

Recently, Captain D’s introduced an updated concept with a new look to the restaurant and a revamped menu. The new restaurant design combines traditional Captain D’s elements with a blend of new features and colors including a new order station, menu board, seating package, and decor.

In addition to keeping the all-time traditional menu favorites like Captain D’s freshly battered fish fillets and deluxe seafood platter, the chain has added grilled items such as Alaskan Salmon, Tilapia, and farm-raised Catfish or Shrimp Skewers, available grilled or Blackened.

Captain D’s opened its first new prototype design in Oxford, Mississippi, in January. The Oxford restaurant is the beginning of a phased-in remodeling and building program that includes 35 restaurants in the Nashville market.

Captain D’s owns, operates, and franchises some 600 restaurants in 26 states, the Caribbean, as well as military bases around the world.
