Nashville, Tenn. — Captain D’s, a leading fast-casual seafood restaurant, has converted a former Huddle House restaurant into its newest franchised location in Glennville, Ga. Owned by local entrepreneur Zuber Malek, the new restaurant will open on April 24; its grand opening kicks off a spate of Captain D’s conversions this spring in Georgia, including a former Bojangles in Savannah and a Dunkin’ in Marietta.

The new Glennville restaurant features Captain D’s vibrant, coastal design and welcoming atmosphere, serving high-quality seafood with warm hospitality at an affordable price. With spacious dining room seating for 22, the restaurant also has drive-thru, carry-out and call-ahead ordering options.

“Zuber Malek has a deep commitment to his community and exceptional talent for running successful restaurant operations. He is just the type of franchisee Captain D’s looks for to continue expanding our brand throughout the Southeast and beyond,” says Brad Reed, chief development officer of Captain D’s. “We have several more converted restaurant locations on tap for Georgia this spring, showcasing our expertise in turning around a variety of vacant properties and getting our franchisees up and running faster to serve their communities.”

The Nashville, Tenn.-based brand, founded in 1969, remains focused on corporate and franchise development in target markets throughout the South, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states, including Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
