Captain D’s Celebrates Record-Breaking Success in 2015
Captain D’s is continuing on a track of upward growth and achieved record-breaking success in 2015. The company experienced the most successful year in its rich history by establishing an all-time system-wide AUV record, marking the brand’s third consecutive year of AUV record growth.
Captain D’s also saw a fourth-quarter system-wide same-store sales increase of 4 percent and a 4.3 percent system-wide same-store sales increase for the entire fiscal year, marking the company’s seventeenth consecutive quarter and fifth consecutive year of positive growth.
Additionally, Captain D’s closed out the fourth quarter of 2015 with the signing of seven new franchise development agreements, positioning the company for another year of explosive growth in the fast casual segment. These signings will bring additional Captain D’s locations to South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Colorado, Kentucky, Mississippi, Wisconsin and Michigan.
Among the new and existing franchise developers is Valerie Daniels-Carter, the country’s largest female African-American food service franchisee, who will begin developing six Captain D’s locations in Milwaukee and Detroit later this year. With a new cluster of new franchise development agreements, Captain D’s plans to open more than a dozen locations throughout the year.
