Captain D’s, an American chain of fast casual seafood restaurants, has opened two new restaurants in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Danville, Kentucky.

V&J Holding Cos president and CEO Valerie Daniels-Carter owns and operates the newest Wisconsin location.

The new Milwaukee location is situated at 3326 Capitol Drive. It marks the brand’s second restaurant in the metropolitan area after Daniels-Carter lead the brand’s market entrance in February last year.

Daniels-Carter’s franchise empire features brands such as Burger King, Pizza Hut, Haagen-Dazs Coffee Beanery and Auntie Annie’s. She expanded the portfolio to more than 135 units since 1982.

Captain D’s chief development officer Brad Reed said: “Thanks to the record-breaking performance we’ve accomplished over the past few years, we’ve been able to forge meaningful relationships with key multi-unit franchisees, such as Valerie Daniels-Carter.”

The Danville restaurant is owned by multi-unit operator, Shaun Hill, and business partners, Kelly and Corey Boernsen, of Triton Investments.

It joins Shaun Hill’s portfolio of foodservice brands like Buffalo Wings and Rings. Shaun Hill’s already own Captain D’s Bardstown, Kentucky location.
