Wauwatosa Cousins restaurants to hold donation nights, special events to benefit Wisconsin Lutheran Warriors teams
September 13, 2011 // Franchising.com // WAUWATOSA, Wis. - Cousins Subs® today announced that its three Wauwatosa stores have started a new fund-raising partnership with Wisconsin Lutheran College (WLC) sports teams for the 2011-12 school year. Fund-raising efforts will include Warrior donation nights at the Wauwatosa stores and special activities in conjunction with Warrior events.
"Cousins Subs has always been a strong supporter of Wisconsin Lutheran College and the Warriors, and we're excited to take that relationship to a new level," said Dave Stewart, owner of the Cousins Subs store at 853 N. Mayfair Road. "We've been working closely with the school's athletic department and coaches on this initiative, and we think it's going to be a big positive for Wisconsin Lutheran College, for Cousins and for the community we call home."
As part of the partnership, the three Wauwatosa Cousins stores - 853 N. Mayfair Road, 12325 W. Burleigh St. and 6810 W. State St. - will donate 10 percent of their Thursday evening proceeds to a different WLC team each month. September donation nights will benefit the Warriors cheerleaders.
Cousins Subs will also hold a fund-raiser for the Warriors' Oct. 8 football game against Concordia Chicago. Fans at Raabe Stadium will have the chance to win Cousins prizes and the Wauwatosa Cousins stores will donate 15 percent of the day's proceeds to the WLC Locker Legends campaign to help renovate locker rooms and concession stands.
Cousins Subs, based in Menomonee Falls in suburban Milwaukee, is a restaurant specializing in East Coast-style submarine sandwiches made with the finest ingredients served on a variety of freshly baked breads, along with salads, soups, chips and soft drinks. 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. For more information, visit www.cousinssubs.com.
