Operator Signs Agreement To Bring Captain D's To Utah
Maqsood Merchant has more than 15 years of experience in franchising with brands like Quiznos, Popeyes, and 7-Eleven convenience stores. Now his MH & Sons Enterprises has signed on with fast-casual seafood brand Captain D's to open three new restaurants in the Salt lake City area. Merchant is bringing the brand as far west as it has ever been.
"Aside from the tremendous opportunity to bring the brand to Utah for the first time, what attracted me most to Captain D's was its substantial growth over the past several years with much of that growth being fueled by existing operators. Operator reinvestment in a brand showcases its strength and, ultimately, trust in the franchisor of the direction the brand is going in, which motivated me to jump on the opportunity quickly," said Merchant. "I'm so excited to bring the brand to Salt Lake City, and share Captain D's delicious, high-quality and affordable seafood with the communities here."
The Salt Lake City-based operator will open his first Captain D's location in Pleasant Grove next summer.
Nashville-Tennessee-based Captain D's now has more than 530 restaurants in 22 states.
