Maine-raised cousins Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis initially channeled a shared love of lobster into a Los Angeles-based food truck. Their entrepreneurial spirit grew and the cousins appeared on popular TV show, Shark Tank in 2012. The success of Cousins Maine Lobster has since skyrocketed and the cousins have more than 20 food trucks across the country. Next came brick-and-mortar locations and the duo's latest location is at Neptune Beach's Seminole Shoppes.

A July 29 grand opening was met with a line of eager, lobster-loving fans. The cozy, 1,253 SF space is located in our 87,274 SF Publix-anchored shopping center less than two miles from sandy Neptune Beach.
"We couldn’t be happier to serve the real estate needs of Cousins Maine Lobster at Seminole Shoppes,” said Ann Gallaher, Regency Centers Property Manager. "We are both pleased and proud that Cousins chose this market to expand into, and we are delighted their recent grand opening was so successful. The timing was perfect for this unique opportunity and we believe Cousins Maine Lobster brings economic growth, value and enjoyable food options to the beaches community."
