Amelia Island, another one of the great American barrier islands, is known for its gorgeous, uncluttered beaches, its native wildlife, and now, thanks to Dave & Elaine Lynch, Outer Banks Boil Company!
We couldn't be happier to add this great couple - and Clancy! - to our Outer Banks Boil Company Family. A love of seafood, a great location, and a perfect pair have come together to bring "The Best Pot on the Beach" to northern Florida. Here's how:
Transplants from Washington DC, Dave & Elaine stumbled upon Amelia Island on a quick vacation. The shrimp were the best they'd tasted (which was a qualifier!), but it was the people that really clinched the deal. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly . . . there was no other place to go: They had found their new home.
Dave is a foodie. While he earned his living as a technical writer for our federal government, Dave has worked as a personal chef with his business "New Lime Catering" (where his moniker, "The Lasagna Guy", was born).
Elaine is an island girl. Growing up in Puerto Rico, being close to the ocean is essential. As a design and proposal professional with over 20 years of management experience, Elaine's focus will be on the marketing and back end of the business.
And then there's Clancy! Dave and Elaine have a passion for dogs. (They actually met while walking their dogs!) Clancy, their trusted Labrador Retriever, is well known already in the community for his amazing people skills. He'll be a welcome face in their storefront - as well as carrying on the already well-trodden path of Jack, Zoey, and Obe in our North Carolina locations!)
Why Outer Banks Boil Company? That's an easy question:
"We did months of research and couldn’t find a business we felt passionate about", Elaine tells us. "When friends introduced us to Outer Banks Boil Company, we instantly knew we wanted to be a part of 'The Best Pot on the Beach'."
Dave loves the shrimp, it's true, but it's really the banter with customers that keeps him happy.
For Elaine, it's the crabs and fresh corn!
Anticipated opening date: May 4, 2022 - Just in time for Mother's Day!
