Cousins Maine Lobster Pops Open in Time for Summer

From ‘Shark Tank’ to Smyrna

Popular food truck and Shark Tank success story Cousins Maine Lobster announced in February that the next phase of its local growth was the opening of a brick and mortar restaurant this spring — and it happened on Saturday, May 26 at 1932 Almaville Rd. in Smyrna.

Founders Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis sent the following statement to Eater on the eve of the opening.

A few years back, we opened a food truck in Nashville and expected to be fairly busy. The truth is, we couldn’t keep up with the demand. We opened a second truck and still couldn’t keep up.

Now, thankfully, people can find us every day of the week at our new restaurant and we even have an expanded, larger menu for people to sample.

Nashville has become a culinary leader throughout the country and we are honored to be a part of that movement. This restaurant is our first opened outside of Los Angeles’ and we couldn’t be happier with the location. We love Nashville!
