Founders Program

What is it?

Cousins Subs is committed to new market growth. To show our support, we've created two exciting opportunities* for new Cousins Subs Founders.

Sign up to open 3-5 stores and Cousins Subs will apply the franchise fee from each store to local store marketing for your locations. Combine this amount with the franchise grand opening fee totaling $10,000 per store, and you have approximately $150,000 to promote your new business locally.
