October 29, 2014 // Franchising.com // MILWAUKEE – Cousins Subs® fed more than 9,000 event participants at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's 2nd Annual "Soles for Catholic Education" Walk on Saturday, Oct. 25.
As an event sponsor, Cousins Subs provided more than 9,000 sub samples and cookies to alumni, students, parents and supporters of Catholic education.
"At Cousins Subs, we believe education is a vital component to improving the general welfare and quality of life of the children in our communities," said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing at Cousins Subs. "Every child deserves access to an education that equips them with the tools needed to succeed, and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is working each and every day to 'Make It Better' for those with limited access."
The "Soles for Catholic Education" walk aims to raise awareness of the benefits of Catholic education and to help make Catholic education affordable for all children throughout southeastern Wisconsin. One hundred percent of pledges raised by walkers went directly to the school of their choice. Participants also had the opportunity to "Stuff the Bus" by donating gently used shoes for distribution to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
"Partners like Cousins Subs understand the importance of high quality education for individuals and for society. With their support, we hope to continue this Walk and the more than 170 year tradition of Catholic education in southeastern Wisconsin," said Dr. Kathleen Cepelka, superintendent, Archdiocese of Milwaukee Catholic schools.

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.
