Chad Dillon, a 33-year-old entrepreneur and restauranteur, has achieved remarkable success with his Black-owned Atlanta-based restaurant, The Boiler Seafood and Crab Boil. After just one year in business, the restaurant has already generated $8 million in sales.
Chad was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York to Jamaican parents, and always had a passion for business. He noticed a gap in the market and seized the opportunity to bring an upscale seafood boil experience to Atlanta. Initially, he wanted to be a franchisee of The Juicy Crab, but after being denied, he decided to launch his own concept.
In January 2019, Chad started planning and secured a building lease in Atlanta's prominent Buckhead neighborhood in August 2019. Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, Chad remained determined to bring his vision to life. On December 4, 2020, The Boiler Seafood opened its doors and quickly gained popularity, becoming Buckhead's number one seafood and crab boil restaurant.
"I'm a thinker and innovator, so even without a culinary background, I enjoy finding voids in the business market and creating solutions," Chad told Travel Noire. "I also take a very hands-on approach, spending 10+ hours a day at the restaurant, running errands, and handling the restaurant's logistics."
The Boiler Seafood's menu features a wide range of seafood options, including snow crab legs, blue crabs, mussels, and crawfish. Their signature seafood boil bags, combining seafood with potatoes, corn, and a special sauce, have been a hit with customers. Plus, the restaurant offers enticing alternatives such as seafood egg rolls and various fried options.
