January 02, 2008 // Franchising.com // Milwaukee, WI – Cousins Subs Systems, Inc. recently announced the opening of its new store located on South Main Street in Fond du Lac, Wis. The store is owned by Phil Hudson, who joined Cousins as an area developer for the northern Wisconsin area in late-May.
"This store will be the first of ten," said Hudson. "After much planning, I am very excited to get started. The opening process has gone very well, and the store has turned out beautifully."
As an area developer for Cousins, Hudson is responsible for the sub-chain's brand expansion just north of Milwaukee, through Green Bay and counties surrounding Lake Winnebago. The new store's style coincides with the recent facelift Cousins Subs has undergone with new and existing stores.
"We are thrilled Phil has opened his first store," said Kerry Espich, manager of franchise sales and recruitment for Cousins Subs. "He is already moving forward with plans for expansion in the first half of next year."
Hudson has hired Jesse Konkle as general manager for the Fond du Lac location. She has four years of assistant manager experience and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh.
"Jesse is doing a great job," adds Hudson. "With great support at the Fond du Lac store and from corporate, we are poised to have a very strong beginning this year."
The new store is located at 928 South Main St. at the intersection of Main Street and Pioneer Street and can be reached by phone at 920-907-0172.

About Cousins Subs
Cousins Subs is based in Milwaukee, Wis., and is a national sub sandwich chain with stores throughout the Midwest and on the West Coast. The tradition of Cousins Subs started in 1972, when two transplanted cousins from Atlantic City saw the need for an East coast–style sub shop in their new hometown. They patterned their subs after the hoagie, grinder, hero and sub sandwiches they enjoyed back East. And with a dedication to delivering quality subs at fair prices, they opened their first restaurant. From the start, the two used bread baked fresh every morning and insisted on using only the finest, freshest ingredients.
