Captain D’s First-Ever ‘Express’ Restaurant Opens in South Fulton

South Fulton is now home to Captain D's first-ever "Express" restaurant. Anil Dossani, the restaurant's operator, celebrated the grand opening today along with the South Fulton Chamber, Old National Merchants Association and members of the community.
