MILWAUKEE - November 11, 2013 – Cousins Subs® restaurants recently sponsored the "Soles for Catholic Education" charity walk, providing subs and cookies for nearly 7,000 walkers and supporters of Catholic Education. The walk, organized by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, took place on November 2nd at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee.
The primary goals of the event were to raise awareness about the benefits of Catholic education and to help ensure that every family that wants a Catholic school education has access to one.
"Cousins Subs has been a great philanthropic partner to our 'Soles for Catholic Education' walk," said Julie Wolf, director of communications, Archdiocese of Milwaukee. "With their support, we were able to feed the nearly 7,000 people at the event – the subs and cookies provided definitely made it a better day for them!"
"The 'Soles for Catholic Education' walk's mission fits perfectly with our overall mission to 'Make It A Better Day,'" said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing, Cousins Subs. "Access to great education is a crucial component to our children's success and well-being. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee is working hard to increase access to and awareness of Catholic education."

Cousins Subs® and its franchisees operate more than 130 sub sandwich shops in six states, with bold expansion plans. The first Cousins Subs was established in Milwaukee in 1972 by Bill Specht and his cousin. Their dream was to bring East Coast-style sub sandwiches to Milwaukee – with their own handcrafted touch. They started with their bread, developing a secret recipe with the perfect taste and crunch. That bread is the cornerstone of the Cousins Subs slogan, "Better Bread. Better Subs. Better Day." The original recipe is still closely followed at every Cousins Subs store, where each sandwich is made to order using freshly sliced deli meats, cheeses, and vegetables – and the bread is baked fresh each day. Forty-one years later and still family owned, Cousins Subs employees and franchisees are driven by their mission to "Make it a Better Day" in all they do. In 2013, the brand proudly announced the establishment of the Make it Better Foundation, dedicated to funding causes that address health and wellness, hunger and youth education in the communities that Cousins Subs serves.
