Chad Dillon, a 33-year-old entrepreneur and restauranteur, has achieved massive success as the young owner of The Boiler Seafood and Crab Boil, a Black-owned Atlanta-based restaurant that serves fried lobster tails, fried king crab, fried catfish, hushpuppies, and more. After just one year in the business, his restaurant has already generated $8 million in sales.
Chad who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York to Jamaican parents, has always had a knack for business. Upon noticing a gap in the market, he seized the opportunity to bring an upscale seafood boil experience to Atlanta. He initially wanted to be a franchisee of The Juicy Crab but was denied. That was when he decided to take a risk and launch his own concept.
The Boiler Seafood’s menu features a wide range of seafood options, including snow crab legs, blue crabs, mussels, and crawfish. The restaurant’s signature seafood boil bags, combining seafood with potatoes, corn, and a special sauce, have been a hit with customers. Additionally, the restaurant offers enticing alternatives such as seafood egg rolls and various fried options.
