COUSINS SUBS® RESTAURANT OPEN IN FONTANA - Local Entrepreneurs, Neil and Deepak Gill, Opened Cousins Subs in Their Hometown -

FONTANA, Wis. (October 31, 2013) – Local entrepreneurs, Neil and Deepak Gill, have opened a new Cousins Subs® restaurant in Fontana this Thursday, October 31st. The Fontana restaurant will be connected to the existing “Fontana Shell” gas station at 286 Valley View Drive.

The restaurant will be open 10AM – 8 PM, seven days a week, and will have expanded hours in the summer.

The Gills, who live in Lake Geneva, own several convenience stores in the area.  

“We decided we wanted to expand our business into the restaurant market, and because we are such fans of Cousins Subs, it was a natural fit,” Neil Gill explained.  “As business owners, we recognized the great potential that opening a Cousins Subs restaurant would bring to the area - there isn’t currently a quick food option for the many people visiting the marina and beach in Fontana.”

“Our new Cousins Subs restaurant offers deli-style sandwiches with freshly sliced meats and vegetables, on Cousins’ famous baked in-store bread,” Gill continued. “We also serve up fries and grilled sandwiches.”  

“We’re thrilled to have the Gills join the Cousins Subs family,” said Joe Ferguson, vice president of development at Cousins Subs.  “They already have successful businesses in Walworth County, and we are excited to help them grow by serving up better subs to the community.”

For more information, please visit or call the store directly at (262) 275-0300.

Cousins Subs® and its franchisees operate more than 130 sub sandwich shops in six states, with bold expansion plans. The first Cousins Subs was established in Milwaukee in 1972 by Bill Specht and his cousin. Their dream was to bring East Coast-style sub sandwiches to Milwaukee – with their own handcrafted touch. They started with their bread, developing a secret recipe with the perfect taste and crunch. That bread is the cornerstone of the Cousins Subs slogan, “Better Bread. Better Subs. Better Day.” The original recipe is still closely followed at every Cousins Subs store, where each sandwich is made to order using freshly sliced deli meats, cheeses, and vegetables – and the bread is baked fresh each day. Forty-one years later and still family owned, Cousins Subs employees and franchisees are driven by their mission to “Make it a Better Day” in all they do. In 2013, the brand proudly announced the establishment of the Make it Better Foundation, dedicated to funding causes that address health and wellness, hunger and youth education in the communities that Cousins Subs serves.
