Cousins ​​Maine Lobster food truck hits the road in Rochester NY

A food truck that got its big break on the television show “Shark Tank” will hit the road in Rochester this week. Cousins ​​Maine Lobster serves two types of lobster rolls, lobster bisque, New England clam chowder, other lobster dishes and whoopie pies.

According to the website, cousins ​​Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis launched their first food truck in April 2012.

Since then, Cousins ​​​​Maine Lobster has become a franchisee and now has food trucks and restaurants in more than 40 cities across the country.

The husband-and-wife franchisees for the Rochester truck are Cindy and Peter Sztankovits, who joined the company as franchisees in 2019 and also own Cousins ​​Maine Lobster food trucks in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
