Captain D’s Opens in Moss Point, Mississippi
Raises Funds for Tunnel to Towers Foundation During Sept. 11th Week
September 14, 2023 // Franchising.com // NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Captain D’s is converting former restaurant space into a seafood franchise with its newest opening in Moss Point, Mississippi. The new Captain D’s is in a space formerly occupied by KFC at 6600 MS-63 North and features a spacious dining room and convenient drive-thru. This is the 12th Mississippi location for Chris Benner and Tim Stokes of Trident Holdings, LLC, who opened in nearby Gulfport last October. They are the brand’s largest franchisees with 55 total restaurants across eight Southeastern states.
The duo has a history of reviving vacant properties with Captain D’s; their most recent project was converting a Bojangles in Savannah, Georgia, this past April. Identifying prime sites in markets like Moss Point has become a key strategy for Benner and Stokes.
“Moss Point was a natural choice for us to try to find a home for a new Captain D’s because of the response our Gulfport restaurant has received from the community,” said Chris Benner. “We were thrilled to find this existing restaurant building for sale in Moss Point and be able to transform it. We have a team of over 40 crew members and managers ready to serve delicious broiled and fried seafood with a large array of sides to the wonderful people of Moss Point and Pascagoula.”
It's important to Benner and Stokes to give back while also celebrating this grand opening with the community. To do that, they are hosting a fundraiser for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization that provides mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and builds specially adapted smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Captain D’s in Moss Point will match all donations made by customers during the week of Sept. 11th
Located at 6600 MS-63 North, the new Moss Point restaurant features Captain D’s vibrant, coastal design and welcoming atmosphere, serving high-quality seafood with warm hospitality at an affordable price. With spacious dining room seating for 40, the restaurant also has carry-out and call-ahead ordering options, as well as a drive-thru equipped with state-of-the-art technology for efficiency and speed. Hours of operation are Sunday – Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
