Captain D’s Honors Top Performers at Annual Franchise Convention

Captain D’s, the leading fast casual seafood restaurant, announced today award recipients from its annual convention who were recognized as top performers whose ability to lead and manage teams in their restaurants led to high sales volume throughout the year. Additionally, franchise owners of five locations were named to the President’s Club for achieving the highest sales revenue in the system.

“Our franchisees continue to do an outstanding job providing unparalleled service to the customers they serve and have shown guest-focused leadership as they’ve led their teams to great success over the past year,” said Phil Greifeld, chief executive officer and president of Captain D’s. “It’s because of their commitment that Captain D’s achieved record-breaking success in 2015 and is seen as an industry leader. We’re incredibly proud of our entire team and award recipients across the nation and look forward to celebrating their continued success as we prepare for another prosperous year.”

In 2015, Captain D’s showcased its seafood expertise and product innovation with the introduction of new menu items including the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, Homestyle Fish Tenders and Creamy Shrimp Scampi. Through strategic rollouts of new products and limited-time menu promotions system-wide, the brand established an all-time system-wide AUV record, marking Captain D’s third consecutive year of AUV record growth. President’s Club award winners include:

  • Robbie Copenhaver, Sandy Haury, Newton Cannon – Scottsboro, Alabama
  • David Simmons, Mike Tidwell, Wes Cummings – Milledgeville, Georgia
  • David Simmons, Mike Tidwell, Roy Williams – Greenville, Mississippi
  • Mark Sweeney, Robert Weedon, Dave Ludlow – Fredricksburg and Richmond, Virginia

Captain D’s also named Ben Patel, Jim and Val McClure, and Brian Smith and Rodney Coats as Developers of the Year, and honored John Murphy, Ronnie Newell and Rob Gassel with the Mission and Values Award.

The second quarter of 2016 marked Captain D’s 19th consecutive quarter of system-wide growth, generating a 3.1 percent system-wide same store sales increase, along with a surge of new franchise and corporate growth. Coupled with its ongoing menu innovation, Captain D’s credits its new restaurant design with contributing to the brand’s compounding success. To date, 47 percent of all restaurants have been re-imaged to the brands new vibrant, coastal design, with another 50 locations to be remodeled by the end of this year. With these efforts, Captain D’s has remained true to what it does best — serving high-quality seafood with warm hospitality at an affordable price in a welcoming atmosphere.
