The Cousins Maine Lobster
food truck will make its debut Saturday, March 2nd at Crosstown Brewing.
The truck, which is one of about two dozen nationwide, is known for its lobster rolls.
Cousins is run by two cousins — Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac. According to Lomac, they were only in business a couple of months when they were urged by the producers of Shark Tank
to appear. They did and convinced Barbara Corcoran to back them.
The company has since expanded wildly — now with 30 trucks and eight brick-and-mortar restaurants. Lomac says it was the exposure from the show that helped them realize this sort of success.
Lomac says that the Memphis market appealed to them because they recognized the promise in the food scene.
The truck will be at Crosstown Brewing on March 2nd from 2:30 to 7 p.m. From there, it's a busy schedule:
Buster's Liquors & Wines
191 S Highland Street, Memphis TN 38111
7945 Wolf River Blvd, Germantown, TN 38138

Health Sciences Park

The menu for the Memphis truck features two types of lobster roll (Maine and Connecticut), a lobster grilled cheese, lobster tots (!), clam chowder, and lobster tacos and shrimp tacos.
For Lomac, sourcing the lobster through Maine guarantees quality, which will be something Memphians will appreciate. "It's an affordable luxury," he says. "And we saved them a trip to Maine."
