The store is owned by Jim and Karen Railing and their daughter, Shantel Vaughn.
"We are very proud of the accomplishments of the Railing family. With Railing's business background in the franchise industry and Shantel's experience in the food industry, they make a great team," said Kerry Espich, manager of franchise sales and recruitment for Cousins Subs. "This is their second store since joining Cousins Subs only a year ago."
The location features a full-service drive-thru, a grill and French fries in addition to the sub-shop's traditional elements like daily fresh baked breads and cookies, and top-quality meats. In addition, the Scottsburg store provides catering and delivery services for meetings and events.
"We are excited about the opening of the Scottsburg store," said Vaughn.

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.
