Captain D's set to reopen Jan. 13

City of Anderson provides $50,000 grant

ANDERSON — Almost a year after a fire destroyed Captain D’s, the popular northside restaurant is set to reopen Jan. 13 in a new building at the same site.

The restaurant in the 2700 block of Broadway was originally constructed in the 1970s. Troy Knight, who also owns a franchise in Muncie, purchased the business with his father, Don, in 1983.

The Anderson Board of Public Works on Tuesday approved a $50,000 grant from food and beverage tax revenues to help with the rebuilding of the business.

Greg Winkler, director of the Anderson Economic Development Department, said the business was missed on the north side and several people contacted the city about a scarcity of dining options in the area.

Knight said reopening of the Captain D’s in Anderson is a $700,000 investment and will employ about 50 people. He said the planned opening is set for Monday, Jan. 13.

Winkler said Knight looked at several other possible locations for the business in Anderson and other communities. Winkler noted that Knight used local contractors and suppliers in constructing the new restaurant.

The business was destroyed on the morning of Jan. 28, after two motorists called emergency dispatch to report the blaze. It took Anderson firefighters three hours to bring the fire under control. An employee inside the building escaped uninjured.

After the fire Captain D's restaurant, 2701 Broadway, is expected to reopen Jan. 13. The original structure, built in the 1970s, was destroyed in a Jan. 28, 2013, fire.
