Seafood steam pot a hit for social distance gatherings
June 26, 2020 – Surf City, NC – Topsail Steamer, the no-restaurant restaurant, has boomed as the shift in habits reflect new lifestyles that are evolving from Coronavirus. The stores, located in Topsail Island and Wrightsville Beach, NC, and Ocean City, NJ, have experienced record sales as people look for unique experiences they can have outside or at home.
“We create a fun, healthy, and yummy family-friendly dining experience,” says Danielle Mahon, Founder and CEO of Topsail Steamer. “When I was writing the Topsail Steamer business plan, a pandemic was not part of my SWOT analysis. While quality seafood and convenience are always in the spotlight, we’ve watched the experience take the lead during this time of restrictions and isolation. We’re just thrilled that we can bring more fun to people’s lives.”
Topsail Steamer was founded in Surf City, NC in 2017. The great success in this vacation-friendly beach spot led to an expansion in Wrightsville Beach in 2018, and a subsequent opening of a new store in Ocean City, NJ, on May 15th, 2020. The Ocean City store location was selected because that’s where Mahon spent her family spent summers as she was growing up, and her friends and family now help run that store.
“We’re a family-run business that builds seafood steam pots for people to take home, steam and eat,” said Mahon. “That DIY-but-it’s-done-for-you approach is a great way to entertain and get out of the isolation rut. It’s really resonating with people.”
A Convenient, Quality Experience – and Nationwide Next Day Delivery
