Nashville, Tenn. — Captain D’s, the nation’s leading fast-casual seafood restaurant, has converted a former Dunkin’ to its newest franchised location in Marietta, Ga. (not pictured here). This is the fourth Atlanta-area Captain D’s for local owner Anil Dossani, who began franchising with the brand in 2018 and already has a fifth location on tap for Ellenwood later this summer. The Marietta opening comes on the heels of two other Captain D’s conversions this spring in Georgia, including a former Bojangles in Savannah and a Huddle House in Glennville.
Dossani began developing with the brand 5 years ago and has grown quickly. He started with traditional 44-seat dining room locations in Acworth and Norcross, Ga., then opened Captain D’s first franchise-owned Express prototype in South Fulton, featuring drive-thru and walk-up service only. Later this summer, he will be opening his fifth restaurant in Ellenwood, which will also be the first Captain D’s in-line with a convenience store. Together with this Dunkin’ conversion in Marietta, he will soon be operating every prototype the brand currently offers.
“My team and I continue to grow with Captain D’s because the company knows how to be innovative both with its menu and its real estate development,” says Anil Dossani, owner of the new Captain D’s in Marietta. “Converting a former restaurant location like this one helps us save significantly on startup costs, while smaller footprints like Express give us more flexibility when looking at potential sites or tough real estate markets.”
The new Marietta restaurant features Captain D’s coastal design. With dining room seating for 30, the restaurant also has drive-thru, carry-out and call-ahead ordering options.
