The Boil Daddy, a growing fast-casual seafood concept, is set to open two Orange County locations in Anaheim and Santa Ana, both of which will be helmed by franchisee Chinh Noa.
Noa tells What Now Orange County that they’ll have confirmations on the leases “pretty soon,” adding, “We’re so excited to finalize these deals and bring Boil Daddy’s incredible food to the community.”
The Boil Daddy was founded by owner and CEO Jun Cho in 2020, and in the short three years since, has grown to include 13 locations – 12 of which are in California and another in Garland, Texas – with another nine on the way that will be spread throughout California, Arizona, and Texas.
“Our entire team is blown away at the momentum we have seen already this year with our franchise opportunity, and we haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s to come,” Cho said in a statement. “The Boil Daddy is seeking to be the new face of delicious Cajun Seafood Boil not only in California, but across the U.S.”
Incidentally, Cho’s aggressive expansion plans and progress have even been recognized by Forbes, landing the young restaurateur on the prominent outlet’s exclusive list of 30 Under 30 for 2023.
“We want to make The Boil Daddy an accessible business ownership opportunity for people of all passions and interests. From our ultra-successful ghost kitchen model to our soon-to-come full dine-in experience, The Boil Daddy truly offers a perfect model for entrepreneurs of all kinds,” said Cho.
The Boil Daddy is one of the fastest-growing Cajun seafood restaurants on the West Coast, serving deliciously authentic Cajun seafood boil. Crowd favorites include Daddy’s Fried Oyster Basket, Fiyahhh Daddy Wings, Snow Crab Legs, and Deck Cadet’s Catch Combo.
