Ty Graham joined the Outer Banks Boil Company team in 2016 and partnered with his longtime college friend, Matt Khouri to open the organization’s second location in Wilmington, NC called Cape Fear Boil Company. Prior to OBBC, Ty had worked as a Business Development sales rep for a startup software company in NC called NextGlass. After NextGlass was acquired and merged with another software company in that space, Ty left the venture to begin his career with OBBC. Within the first year of business, Ty’s Cape Fear Boil Company location fulfilled over one hundred catered boil events and grossed over $100,000 in sales. In only year two of operation, CFBC managed to turn a solid profit and now in year three, continues that trend upwards.
As the Chief Financial Officer of the OBBC franchise operation, Ty is an expert at evaluating and monitoring company metrics, improving operational efficiencies, assessing financing options and identifying where risks and opportunities exist. Ty’s work as CFO goes beyond budgeting into several facets of the company. He is also an expert at helping to plan media initiatives. His strong experience and background in marketing gives OBBC a greater opportunity to collaborate and make data-driven decisions around what’s working and what’s not working with regard to company strategy. Ty’s skill set is crucial in developing company systems and ensuring that those systems are scalable for maximum growth potential.
