North-Carolina based Outer Banks Boil Company, a new takeout and catering franchise that specializes in signature seafood boils, is bringing their brand to Virginia Beach. The new location, set to open on April 10 at 1253 Nimmo Pkwy, Suite 113, is conveniently located to serve Sandbridge, oceanfront and the greater Virginia Beach market.
Long-time friends and business partners, Kyle Vrhovac, Parker Byrd and Evan Verbeek are no strangers to the Outer Banks Boil Company concept. Byrd and Vrhovac own the Charlottesville location and Verbeek wanted to join in on the fun. With the Virginia Beach ocean front, the trio is eager to introduce the tourists and locals to their savory offerings.
“Kyle and I first stumbled across an Outer Banks Boil Company when we were searching for rental homes in the Outer Banks and my whole life I have been brought up around the making of seafood boils. Being able to be our own bosses while serving a community we resonate with is a lot of work but a whole lot of fun is involved too,” says Byrd.
So what exactly is a boil and how does it work?
Jumbo shrimp, spicy andouille sausage, red bliss potatoes, corn on the cob and sweet Vidalia onions are layered, seasoned to perfection, and expertly steamed together in a boiling pot of spiced water. Seafood such as snow crab legs, clams, mussels, scallops and lobster tails can also be added, in addition to local favorites depending on store location. For non-seafood fans, Outer Banks Boil Company also offers pulled pork barbecue, coleslaw, cornbread muffins and key lime pie for dessert.
When cooking is complete, all the yummy goodness is dropped onto a table fully equipped with a table cloth, plates, forks, knives, and all the other essential utensils and fix-ins for an Outer Banks Boil Company signature seafood boil.
In addition to the above catering option, there are two other ways to enjoy an Outer Banks Boil Company signature seafood boil: Takeout and Special Events.
You Steam – Takeout: Outer Banks Boil Company “Best POT TO-GO” provides customers with the opportunity to experience a signature seafood boil without the full-service catering.
