The two business partners behind 3 Buoys are former Legal Seafood officials. Bill Park, chef/owner, directed the test kitchen for it. “I got tired of being a number,” Park said recently. Legal Seafood has 30 restaurants between Boston and Florida. Although they do have growth in mind, the first and highly successful 3 Buoys in York will always be the flagship restaurant for Park. Currently, he’s looking for the right chef to step into his shoes here so Park can return to the larger York restaurant. The other business partner is Bill Holler, formerly vp of purchasing at Legal Seafood, Boston, with his wife Nikole. She’s former employee in the seafood business and is the operations manager at 3 Buoys. Nikole is looking for a few good servers, to fill out the staff. Currently Katie Haggerty is doing that job.
