The Brand

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.
