A new takeout and catering franchise that specializes in signature seafood boils is expanding its presence in Florida. Just months after signing its first development agreement in Florida, the Outer Banks Boil Company has set its sights on several new markets for continued Florida expansion. The brand believes there are several markets within Florida that can support at least two locations, and is looking for local business partners to further expand the concept’s presence.
“Our concept has been facing increasing demand throughout the pandemic,” says CEO and founder of Outer Banks Boil Company Matt Khouri. “We have been able to provide customers with access to a restaurant experience while in the comfort and safety of their own home, and they have really enjoyed that. Our unique model has positioned us for even further growth in Florida, and we are eager to share our delicious seafood boils with new communities throughout the Sunshine State.”
The burgeoning brand is looking to expand into the following markets:
- Fort Lauderdale/Miami
- Fort Myers
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, as well as 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 a traditional Carolina low-country boil.
In addition to the above catering option, there are two other ways to enjoy Outer Banks Boil Company: 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.
Special Events: From rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions to birthday celebrations and family reunions, Outer Banks Boil Company makes any event one to remember. Also partnering with outside vendors like local breweries, corporate outings and events are able to have the best of both worlds.
The local expansion announcement comes at a time when Outer Banks Boil Company continues to expand its footprint in the Southeast. Today, the burgeoning brand has five total units operating in North Carolina, Maryland and Virginia. Specifically eyeing beach communities, cities and college/university towns, Outer Banks Boil Company is planning to open at least 3-5 units in 2021 and at least five locations each year thereafter.
