Captain D's Seafood / Title Max, 2324 Taylor Street: late 2000s   6 comments

Posted at 12:10 am in business,restaurants

Captain D's Seafood is owned by the same people as Shoney's and generally seems to like to locate very near to a Shoney's. That was the case with the Shoney's on Two Notch and the Shoney's on Bush River Road, but this one, on Taylor Street, in an outparcel of old Food Lion / current Allen University Mall, never had a Shoney's nearby.

After Captain D's left, the building was taken over by loan company Title Max (which took over a number of failed fast food operations in town, including the old Charleston Highway Burger King, and Steve's #1 Sub Contractor on Broad River Road). I don't recall that operation lasting very long, and the building is now vacant once more.

  1. This strip mall opened with a lot of fanfare and some help from Congressman Clyburn as an attempt to revitalize the area. I do not know why Capt. D's fail but I remember reading that the Food Lion behind it closed because it was unproitable due in part to high shrinkage.

  2. High shrinkage, aka lots o' shoplifting.

  5. By the way, TitleMax took over the former Captain D's on St. Andrews Road that was an Asian restaurant briefly as well (another one you haven't mentioned)

  6. I believe Title Max got the old Church's on North Main and Sunset, too.
