Cousins Maine Lobster Comes Again

by: Ashley Johnson

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.


“It’s been really nice to watch the evolution of the Matchbook tasting room,” Tselikis reflected. “This has all happened in a year; it’s exciting to see what is to come.”

While the one-year anniversary might have passed, Matchbook Wine Company is already looking forward to its two-year anniversary. The road to that anniversary starts this Saturday, August 13.

Cousins Maine Lobster will be appearing at Matchbook Wine Company brimming with its succulent lobster goodies, such as Maine lobster rolls, lobster quesadillas, lobster tots, and more. And what better way to enjoy these goodies then with a crisp, refreshing glass of Matchbook Rosé of TempranilloMTBK-CML-AUG13, which received 90 Points from the 2016 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition, or a glass of Matchbook’s big and creamy Arsonist Chardonnay?
