Tyler Deal Or No Deal Winner Opens Local Seafood Company

You may remember UT Tyler student, "Will Edmond," who won a whopping

$214,000 on "Deal or no Deal."

While most people spend their winnings on lavish cars, "Will" decided to reel in the big bucks, opening up his own seafood company.

 "I thought well, I like fish and I like to cook a little bit, so why not try to do something with seafood,"said Will Edmond.

"Will's Seafood Co." in Tyler, specializes in shrimp and fired fish.

"You have to find a nitch for this area, and I think we've found something that this area doesn't have, and that's fresh seafood and good cooks," he says.

"Will's Seafood" is just one of his investments from his "Deal Or No Deal" wining's.

He is also paying his little sister's college tuition.

Will says, "Rich" is when you have a lot of money-- "Wealth" is when you're happy

and you actually give to people in need of something. "Right now, I'm not

rich, but I'm wealthy and happy," he says. 

"Will's Seafood Co." is located in the Tanglewood shopping center in Tyler, in suite 108.
