The Lewisburg location has been opened following a recent agreement signed by Trident Holdings, consisting of Chris Benner and Tim Stokes, through which the duo purchased eight corporate-owned Captain D’s locations in with plans to develop 10 new fast casual seafood restaurants under the brand throughout the state, and also in major Southeast target markets such as Tennessee, Louisiana, and Georgia.

“Chris and Tim have been dedicated to the company since day one and their continued focus exemplifies the unlimited potential our franchisees can obtain in our system and in this segment. The future is bright as we kick off 2020 with two new franchise development agreements signed for development across Southern Florida and Southeast Georgia.”

Trident Holdings, which signed its first agreement with Captain D’s in 2015, has gone on to become the largest franchisee of the brand. Currently,  Trident Holdings operates more than 30 Captain D’s fast casual seafood restaurants in seven states.

Going forward, the Trident Holdings team will look to continue expanding its Captain D’s network while branching out with the the latter’s sister company, Grandy’s, a Southern-style quick service concept, including 10 units in the pipeline starting in Nashville.

Chris Benner said: “Our rapid growth with Captain D’s is a true testament to the exceptional corporate support system the brand offers franchisees. In a segment dominated by burger and concepts, Captain D’s high-quality, affordable seafood products resonate with consumers, which is why it’s one of the best opportunities in franchising today.

“Our incredible experience with the company to date made it a no-brainer to further our development with Captain D’s sister brand Grandy’s, and we look forward to being a part of the concept’s growth across the Southeast region.”

Captain D’s boasts of more than 530 restaurants in 22 states across the US.
