Nashville, TN (RestaurantNews.com) Captain D’s, the nation’s leading fast casual seafood restaurant, announced today the opening of its newest corporate-owned location in Union Park, Florida, kicking off its 2020 Southeast expansion with its 31st Sunshine State restaurant. Located at 10414 E. Colonial Drive, the Union Park location marks the brand’s fifth Orlando area restaurant following the opening of a location on Orange Blossom Trail last year. On the heels of 2019’s accelerated Florida growth, the brand is slated to open an additional location in Palatka later this quarter.
“2019 was an outstanding year for our Florida growth, expanding our footprint into the Southern region with our Belle Glade opening last August and signing franchise development agreements to bring new restaurants to the central region of the state,” said Brad Reed, chief development officer of Captain D’s. “Likewise, this year is already proving to be a promising one for our accelerated development plans for Florida as we continue to develop corporate locations alongside our franchisees, showing equal investment within new and existing territories. With our existing stores in Orlando consistently surpassing performance benchmarks, we’re looking forward to our continued growth throughout the market and serving more communities in the years to come.”
