Knoxville Headquarters

— Our Story
Years and counting

Capstone Concepts was founded in 2012 and began operating two Mr. Gatti’s Pizza locations in Knoxville, TN and signed a Multi-Unit franchise agreement with First Watch. On October 21, 2013, we opened our first First Watch location in the Turkey Creek Shopping District in West Knoxville. We currently operate eleven locations across our territory in East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. We are also working on opening additional location in Tennessee and North Carolina.

Our goals at Capstone Concepts are to create relationships that last and help our team members reach their potential with an environment that supports growth and recognizes achievements.

We are always looking to diversify our concept by partnering with other brands that are aligned with our mission and philosophy.

A culture of excellence.

Capstone Concepts is dedicated to serving our guests, our team, and our community.

At Capstone Concepts, LLC, we lead, develop, and care for each other so we can take care of our guests.

Trust. Serve. Lead.

We are a hands-on team that believes integrity comes first.  Our customer focus, management controls, and relationships drive our growth and build successful brands.
