Captain D's expands Illinois and Midwest Footprint

November 02, 2021 // // NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Captain D’s, a fast-casual seafood restaurant, announced the opening of its newest franchised restaurant in Posen, Illinois. Located at 3021 W. 147th St., the Posen location marks the brand’s eighth in the state and first in the greater Chicagoland market. The Posen Captain D’s is owned and operated by multi-unit operators Tina and Hardik Patel of Sheiva 11, Inc., who joined the brand in 2019.

“Tina and Hardik Patel excel at store operations and managing their employee teams, and their impressive portfolio and experience in multi-unit ownership showcases they have a deep understanding of what it takes to succeed in the Chicago market,” says Brad Reed, chief development officer for Captain D’s. “Coupled with the strength of our business model and strong sales system-wide, their experience and enthusiasm for our brand ushers in a momentous time for Captain D’s in Chicagoland.”

With a portfolio that includes three Dunkin’ restaurants and one Subway in the Chicago metro area, the Patels have already set their sights on further expansion in the market, signing a second agreement this year to open two more Captain D’s restaurants in Chicago. 

“Hardik and I look forward to bringing Captain D’s unparalleled guest experience and high-quality seafood at affordable prices to Posen and the Chicago metro area,” says Tina Patel. “We have enjoyed being a part of this business community for the past two decades and are thrilled about this new opportunity in the fast casual seafood space with an innovative brand that prioritizes our success.”

The Captain D’s in Posen is open Sunday – Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. The restaurant offers a spacious 22-seater floor plan, featuring the brand’s signature coastal design. Vibrant colors and décor create a fun and welcoming atmosphere where friends and families can come together and enjoy their seafood favorites.
