The Seafood Company announces first 2023 southern and midwestern tour with early stop in Cookeville

Cookeville – Cousins Maine Lobster, leading food truck concept and purveyor of the tastiest Maine lobster rolls, will drop by the Red Silo Brewing Company in Cookeville from 4 p.m to 9 p.m. on their first southern and Midwestern Tour of the year. Led by franchisee Chris Papp, the tour will hit 10 cities in 12 days and bring their famous lobster rolls to untapped new markets.

Chris Papp joined the CML Franchise Family in 2018 when he launched his first food truck in Charlotte, NC.

“We started this tour in 2020 with our Charlotte operation to test new markets and introduce people to the best lobster rolls in the world. The tour led me to develop a second franchise agreement that includes Birmingham, Chattanooga and Knoxville; that group is now leading this tour. I’m extremely proud of this team’s hard work and dedication,” said Papp. 

CML co-founder Jim Tselikis celebrated Papp’s annual tour.

“We encourage this kind of creativity and innovation within our Franchise Family,” said Tselikis. “Every year, we are excited to see where Chris decides to go. His out-of-the-box thinking and approach to business invigorates our entire operation. It is a great way to kick off the year.”

The tour starts on January 4 in Huntsville, AL and will make stops in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri and Ohio before concluding in Maryville, TN on January 15.

Founded in 2012 by real-life cousins and Mainers, Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac, Cousins Maine Lobster began with a food truck and a shared vision to extend the highest-quality Maine lobster to the lobster-starved masses by making it affordable and accessible. After appearing on Shark Tank a few months later, Jim & Sabin partnered with Barbara Corcoran and began franchising, partnering with local entrepreneurs to bring Maine lobster to over 40 cities nationwide.
