Captain DoRegos was founded in 1972 by the DoRegos brothers with the first store opening at Grootte Schuur Hospital in Cape Town. In 1993 the concept was converted to a Franchise brand with 8 initial franchise stores. The new owners came on board in March 2018 and after consolidating the brand, are looking to expand the brand by ±10 stores per year over the next five years.
Captain DoRegos is a fast food franchise that prides itself on a quality variety menu. The target market is lower to middle LSM groups with stores ranging from sites at taxi ranks to strip malls and malls. Typical stores range from 80m² – 120m² with staff compliment ranging from 8-14 people depending on store size.
The franchise provides a turn key operation with ongoing training and support. Initial training consists of 4 weeks management and 3 weeks staff training. Refresher training is done on owner request in store by operations managers. The franchise provides support with site selection, landlord negotiations, marketing and a frequently updated training & operations manual.
We are looking for entrepreneurs with a hands-on approach to business. We require the store owners to be directly involved in the running of the business for at least the first year of trade.
