June 17, 2008 // Franchising.com // Menomonee Falls, WI - Cousins Subs Systems, Inc. recently announced the opening of its new store located on South Church Street in Watertown, Wis. The store will officially open June 25 and is owned by Gerry Arnholt, who joined Cousins after being the general manager of a large automobile dealership for 16 years.
"When I was growing up, my family owned a wholesale bakery and we made breads from scratch," added Arnholt. "So I am very excited to be working with Cousins Subs and their high-quality breads that are baked daily."
"We are thrilled Gerry will be opening his first store with Cousins," said Kerry Espich, manager of franchise sales and recruitment for Cousins Subs. "He will be an integral part of the Cousins Subs team, and we look forward to the new store's success."
This store will be one of Cousins' first restaurants to feature the national sub-chain's newest designs and features including stained concrete floors and flat screen televisions tuned to news and sports for customers to enjoy.
"Cousins Subs is a great Wisconsin tradition, and I am looking forward to bringing that tradition to Jefferson County," said Arnholt. "The area is experiencing tremendous growth, and my goal is to open two new stores after this one; one will be in Fort Atkinson, and the other in Johnson Creek."
The new store is located at 5110 South Church St. just north of the airport and can be reached by phone at (920) 206-8000.

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.
