Strong Q3 same-store numbers from Captain D's

Nashville-based seafood chain Captain D's said its third-quarter same-store sales were up 3.2 percent from mid-2012, with company-owned locations putting in ever better numbers. The 3.2 percent gain falls nicely between the performances from Q1 (+1.6 percent) and Q2 (+5.3 percent).

The company's push to add grilled items and upgrade its stores has now produced 26 straight months of same-store growth. Two year system-wide same-store sales during the quarter was an impressive 14.1 percent.
