In 2012, Cousins Maine Lobster founders Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank with a dream to share delicious seafood straight from their hometown in Maine. With one food truck already under their belt that opened in Los Angeles to a line of 50 people, they were grilled by the investors on Shark Tank. But, they prevailed and walked away with a business partner Barbara Corcoran who helped them establish firm footing for their business and a road map for future success.
Today, Cousins Maine Lobster has food trucks in 10 regions throughout the United States, and also offers home delivery of their lobster treats online.
One of these 10 regions where Cousins Maine Lobster can be found is Sacramento. And, for the past year Matchbook Wine Company and Cousins Maine Lobster Sacramento have been working together to provide wine and lobster lovers delicious wine and savory lobster dishes.
On Saturday June 25, Matchbook Wine Company celebrated its one-year anniversary with Cousins Maine Lobster Sacramento owners Paul and Vickie Sharkey. To further mark this anniversary, Cousins Co-founder Jim Tselikis made a special trip out to Matchbook to revel in this special occasion.

We likely don’t mention it as often as we should, but Matchbook Wine Company does its best to donate to nonprofits and fundraisers in the greater Sacramento/Davis/Woodland region. This month, for instance, we’ve donated a mixed case of Matchbook wines to Sacramento’s public television affiliate KVIE for their annual Uncorked event on Thursday, March 26.
According to the event’s website, Uncorked “supports the non-profit mission of KVIE Public Television – offering a world of ideas, arts and adventures to everyone in our region.”
With that in mind, we’re happy to know that attendees will be enjoying Matchbook wines while auctioning items and listening to live music by Frankie Moreno.
