Biographical Info

Inland Seafood of ATL provides all the Fresh Fish you have come to trust and enjoy every week in Eric’s Fresh Fish Market Sylva & Franklin.

I approached Mike Hulsey, Director of Retail Operations in the fall of 2007 with my idea to open a Fresh Fish Market here in the Mountains. He was intrigued. Fresh Fish Markets don’t have the strongest track record in WNC; many come and many go. But Mike understood my business plan for a defined business that focused on event: Eating Fresh Fish for the Weekend. He jumped on the opportunity, and with his help, I opened the first Eric’s Fresh Fish Market in Sylva, the summer of ’08.

My previous 22 years experience serving WNC through opening from the ground up four restaurants and then, a brief stint teaching at Western Carolina University gave me not only the vision for a fresh fish market but developed the necessary tools, knowledge, and familiarity with this area to open a dedicated Fresh Fish Market.
