July 29, 2014 // Franchising.com // MILWAUKEE – Cousins Subs® has named Gabrielle Lulloff of Oshkosh, Wis., as the grand prize winner of its #GOHOGWILD contest. Lulloff will receive free Cousins Subs for one year. Throughout the 10-week contest period, guests were encouraged to capture their inner hog with a photo of themselves or their friends devouring Cousins' limited-time-only subs, the Cubano or the Pulled Pork and Slaw.
"I am honored to be the winner of the #GOHOGWILD contest," said Lulloff. "My love for Cousins Subs - especially the Cubano - and my passion for marketing helped me achieve this distinguished prize. I already make weekly visits to my local Cousins store, so it only made sense that I try my hardest to win free subs for a year!"
The #GOHOGWILD contest brought in more than 100 entries. A winning photo was selected every week, with each of these guests receiving a $100 Cousins Subs gift card. Cousins Subs Facebook fans then voted on the top ten photos, with Lulloff's photo winning the grand prize.
"We loved seeing how creative our guests were with our #GOHOGWILD contest," said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing at Cousins Subs. "We didn't expect to see a guest skydiving with a Cousins sub – or someone enjoying a sub while sitting next to an actual hog! It's great to see how much fun our guests had with these subs."
All contest photos can be viewed by searching the hashtag #GOHOGWILD on Twitter or Instagram or at cousinssubs.com/gohogwild.
Cousins Subs® and its franchisees operate more than 120 sub sandwich shops in four 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 deli fresh 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." The original recipe is still closely followed at every Cousins Subs restaurant, where each sandwich is made to order using freshly sliced deli meats, cheeses, and vegetables – and the bread is baked fresh each day. Forty-two 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.
