Where Is Cousins Maine Lobster From Shark
Tank Today?
By David Tran
Cousins Maine Lobster debuted in 2012 with one food truck in Los Angeles, serving Maine's lobster delicacies, including their signature lobster roll. The culinary creations of Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac didn’t just attract Los Angelenos, but they also perked the interest of “Shark Tank,” and the two struck a deal with shark Barbara Corcoran on their Season 4 appearance.
Since then, Cousins Maine Lobster has made more than $50 million, and in a CNBC article, Tselikis wrote that “Barbara's influence on the company was felt from day one.” She helped propel the company into wide recognition, showcasing the business on “Good Morning America,” “The Today Show,” and “MasterChef,” and the cousins also hosted “Food Truck Rehab” on Food Network.
Three years after their initial appearance on “Shark Tank,” Tselikis and Lomac appeared in a “Shark Tank” update, where they shared that they'd franchised their business, thanks to Corcoran's advice. The food business has now expanded to 29 food trucks, 21 franchisees, and 10 restaurants, including an overseas location in Taiwan.
