August 04, 2014 // Franchising.com // TEMPE, ARIZ. – Cousins Subs® opened a new store Friday inside Fry's Shopping Center at 3118 South Mill Avenue in Tempe, Ariz. The new Cousins Subs store will offer deli-style sandwiches with freshly sliced meats and vegetables, on their famous freshly baked bread. The store also features the brand's signature cheese steak line and other hot subs grilled daily to order.
The brand new 1,422-square-foot store seats 26 and is the first location to open under owner Thomas Jaeger. Jaeger grew up eating Cousins Subs, relocating to Arizona from Milwaukee four years ago.
"Cousins Subs has always been a part of my life, and I've developed a true passion for the brand and its high-quality product," said Jaeger. "I couldn't be more excited to share the Cousins story – and its delicious food – outside of Wisconsin and become a fixture in the Tempe community."
Cousins Subs currently operates in four states. The Tempe location will be their sixth restaurant in the Arizona market.
"We are excited to welcome Thomas to our team and continue expanding into the greater Phoenix area," said Joe Ferguson, vice president of development at Cousins Subs. "His passion for Cousins Subs is contagious. We're confident he'll be successful."

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.
