July 2015 marked a special occasion for Sacramento-area foodies. That’s when franchise owners Paul and Vickie Sharkey debuted their Cousins Maine Lobster truck, joining the fleet of food trucks that ply our area.
Now the Sharkeys are ready to roll out their second lobster truck, and Jim Tselikis and Sabin Lomac – the two cousins who founded the company – will be at two Auburn breweries to meet-and-greet the lobster-hungry for the launch.
Tselikis and Lomac started their one-truck company in 2012. Their biz took off after real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran teamed with them on the TV show “Shark Tank” and helped with bookings on “Good Morning, America,” “The Chew” and “The Today Show,” among others. Now their trucks operate in 13 cities nationwide.
“The cousins have never come to a town together, so this will be a first,” said Paul Sharkey.
The menu at Cousins Maine Lobster goes like this: two types of lobster roll, lobster quesadilla, lobster taco, lobster bisque and more, including lobster ice cream.
The cousins and the Sharkeys’ second lobster truck will be at Moonraker Brewing Co. from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11; 12970 Earhart Ave., 530-745-6816. On Saturday, Nov. 12, find the truck from noon to 8 p.m. (and the cousins from noon to 3 p.m.) at Knee Deep Brewing Co., 13395 New Airport Road, 530-797-4677.
