The Concept

The Bolay restaurant concept was founded in 2016 by Bolay CEO, Chris Gannon, son of Outback Steakhouse co-founder, Tim Gannon. The idea was to bring flavor and healthy ingredients to a fast casual dining experience. Bolay knows that people are on the go and are looking to get healthy options. Whether your managing family dinner for your family or looking for a quick, lunch on you work break, Bolay’s vegan and meat-based Bol’s providing an energizing, flavorful meal to support a healthy lifestyle.

General Manager, Erik Ashton

Bolay of Falls Church, Va. is led by its dynamic, general manager, Erik Ashton, long-time Reston, Va. resident, who has worked in the food and beverage industry for more than 25 years. Ashton most recently worked with the Great American Restaurant management team in Tysons Corner Va. The former certified ski-instructor and licensed tour guide is an avid traveler, and names New Zealand as his favorite destination, where he got to heli-ski, (when you take a helicopter to access backcountry ski runs that are otherwise very difficult to reach.) Ashton resides in Reston, Va. with his wife and newly rescued cat.

“Bolay is about energizing, healthy foods that help us be at our best and feel our best; we want to inspire our Bolay team and our guests to be the best versions of themselves,” said Erik Ashton, general manager of Bolay Fresh Bold Kitchen of Falls Church, Va. “I’m thrilled to introduce the Bolay experience to Northern Virginia and eager to create so many new, job opportunities for our community,” said Ashton.
