Cousins Maine Lobster Makes a Splash in Rhode Island with Grand Opening and 12th Anniversary Celebration!

Lobster lovers rejoice! Cousins Maine Lobster, the popular food truck phenomenon known for their delicious Maine lobster rolls, is setting sail for Rhode Island. They're hosting a grand opening event on Saturday, April 27th, from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, marking their exciting expansion into Southern New England.

Lobster fans can gather at Greenvale Vineyards (582 Wapping Road, Portsmouth) to savor the taste of Maine with Cousins Maine Lobster's signature offerings. The menu will feature their famed lobster rolls, sure to satisfy any seafood craving. Don't forget to indulge in their authentic New England clam chowder and classic whoopie pies for a complete culinary experience.

This grand opening isn't just about delicious food; it's also a celebration! Cousins Maine Lobster is marking their 12th anniversary since their very first food truck hit the streets of Los Angeles. Co-founder Jim Tselikis will be on hand from noon to 4 pm, personally celebrating this milestone with guests.

The Rhode Island expansion is spearheaded by the Nelson family, a group of dedicated franchise owners. Todd Nelson, along with his daughter Tara and son TJ, are bringing the Cousins Maine Lobster experience to not only Rhode Island but also Windham and New London Counties in Eastern Connecticut.

This family affair adds a heartwarming touch to the story. Back in 2012, Jim Tselikis, along with his cousin Sabin Lomac, took a leap of faith on the hit TV show Shark Tank. Their passion for fresh Maine seafood impressed investor Barbara Corcoran, who secured a deal that propelled Cousins Maine Lobster to new heights.

Fast forward to today, and Cousins Maine Lobster boasts a presence in over 20 states. Their robust franchise program allows them to share their culinary vision nationwide, with franchise owners receiving exceptional training directly in Maine. Beyond the iconic food trucks, Cousins Maine Lobster has also established successful restaurants in California, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, and New Jersey. They even offer the option to have live Maine lobsters shipped directly to your doorstep!
