Cousins Submarines[1], better known as Cousins Subs, is a U.S. sub sandwich chain founded in 1972 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cousins Subs is a regional chain with stores throughout the Midwest and on the West Coast. Although the majority of franchises remain in Wisconsin, Cousins restaurants can be found in 6 states, including stores in Arizona, Minnesota and Illinois.

Cousins Subs started in 1972, founded by two cousins from Atlantic City, NJ: Bill Specht and James Sheppard. They opened their first restaurant in Milwaukee, located at 60th Street and Silver Spring Drive.[2]

Until 1985 all Cousins Subs locations were company-owned. Cousins continued to open company-owned stores until 2004. In October 2004, Cousins announced that it would be selling 25 of their 40 company owned stores to franchisees in order to adopt a more traditional franchise growth model.

Co-founder James "Jim" Sheppard died on July 2nd, 2007 due to complications stemming from surgery and long-term health problems.
