Nashville, Tenn. Captain D’s has named Jeff Wilson as its new chief financial officer. He joins Captain D’s at a time when the fast-casual seafood franchise is expanding its geographic footprint, introducing new menu offerings and offering an exceptional customer experience with streamlined digital, drive-thru and delivery options. Wilson joins Captain D’s from Cracker Barrel.

“We are pleased to have Jeff join the Captain D’s executive team, bringing with him a wealth of finance, operations, and profitability enhancement skills in both public and private companies,” says Phil Greifeld, CEO and president of Captain D’s. “Our impressive AUVs and strong sales comps system-wide have contributed to accelerated growth with new and existing franchisees over the past several years, and we have no doubt that Jeff’s extensive leadership experience will help the brand continue to reach new heights.”

Wilson spent the past 15 years at Cracker Barrel, most recently as the company’s vice president of finance and CFO of the Emerging Brands group. He also served as corporate controller and vice president of operations analysis for the company.

Captain D’s has developed restaurant footprints well-suited to the increasingly competitive real estate market, including highly efficient double drive-thrus, smaller footprints and cost-effective conversion opportunities. These flexible options are attracting multi-unit and multi-concept franchisees who are growing with the Nashville, Tenn.-based brand throughout the South, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states. Captain D’s operates more than 530 restaurants in 23 states.
