Entrepreneur magazine ranks Captain D’s #1, Franchise Owners second that opinion.

Captain D’s is proud to announce that we have been ranked #1 in our category in Entrepreneur’s Top 500 and have also received recognition in Entrepreneur’s 2019 Best of the Best Franchises.

The Best of the Best ranking celebrates those elite companies that rank at the top of their industry categories in the Franchise 500. Previously, Captain D’s was ranked #1 in the category in January 2019 in Entrepreneur’s 40th Annual Franchise 500.

These accolades serve to reinforce our leadership as the only fast-casual seafood restaurant franchise and highlight why Captain D’s is a great catch for Franchise Owners. Jim McClure, a multi-unit owner from Georgia, relates why he and his wife, Val McClure, chose Captain D’s after retiring from farming.  

“The biggest thing that differentiates Captain D’s apart from our competition is that we’re basically in a category of one of one.  And that sets us apart as a brand.”

He also likes the fact that half of the 500 Captain D’s locations are corporately-owned.

“Because they are in the restaurant business themselves, their goal is to operate successful and profitable restaurants. That helps the Franchise Owners by constantly providing us with support and innovation,” said McClure.

Multi-unit Franchise Owner Lisa Starnes mentions Captain D’s food quality and the appealing price points.

“I think that Captain D’s has the absolute best value on the street. You go to Captain D’s and you get a protein, two sides, and bread for $4.99 and its good quality product. You cannot beat Captain D’s,” she said.

For Jim and Lisa, that unbeatable combination of quality, value and experience are hallmarks of the Captain D’s brand. The fast-casual industry is also taking note of our impressive system-wide growth and average unit volume.
