Restaurant Conversion are Reshaping the Landscape
2020 is over but shifts in dining trends triggered by a global pandemic are here to stay, making it the right time to rethink conventional models, embrace restaurant conversions and get creative about the possibilities for growth.
Riding The Tide To New Growth.
With new, unique properties becoming available as brick and mortar businesses downsize or shift to online sales, it’s a buyer’s market in franchise real estate these days. While some brands are just starting to explore conversion opportunities, Captain D’s has been transforming existing property into Captain D’s restaurants since 2013. We’re pros and we know how to get creative. Recently, we converted a 1000 square foot Starbucks by adding a 500-600 square foot expansion. We can downsize too, eliminating square footage where it’s not needed. Regardless of the size, location or type of your restaurant, we love helping existing and new Franchise Owners convert restaurants into thriving destinations for the communities they serve.
Support For The Conversion Process.
We’re pros at helping business owners source the right franchise real estate from existing supply to get to market. Our team partners with you retrofit current locations to fit brand standards while making smart use of existing infrastructure. From Arby’s and Church’s Chicken to Dunkin Donuts and Jack in the Box, we’ve converted real estate from existing restaurant brands over the country.
Behind Our Smaller Footprint Is Big Innovation.
Last year, we launched our new smaller footprint protoypes, a happy coincidence in an otherwise tumultuous year. With the pandemic, drive-thru and carry-out sales soared, making our smaller prototype ideal for the times. “The thing we are most proud of is that we are kind of on the front end of this thing,” Captain D’s CEO Phi Russo told Nation’s Restaurant News Magazine.
Retrofitting Real Estate, Reimagining Possibilities.
Converting restaurants into Captain D’s can bring renewed traffic to an underutilized area, job opportunities to the community, and affordable, delicious fish and seafood options to markets already saturated with pizza, burger, and chicken fast-casual restaurants. When you convert an existing footprint, you can reduce startup costs by as much as 25-30%, and get open an average of 30 days sooner.
New Beginnings Start Here.
Our first Express location is on track to open in the Atlanta area by the second quarter of 2021. We partnered with multi-unit operator Anil Dossani, who had great things to say about the process and our people. “Captain D’s has been an incredible franchisor, providing us with unparalleled support since we signed our first agreement,” Anil said “We couldn’t be more thrilled to further develop our portfolio and bring the first Express locations to the greater Atlanta area.”
