Cousins Maine Lobster, which made a splash on ABC's Shark Tank in 2012, launched in West Sacramento on Thursday.
The franchise business, owned by husband-and-wife team Paul and Vickie Sharkey, had its kickoff at Yolo Brewing Company in West Sacramento. By 5 p.m., a line had wrapped around Yolo Brewing's parking lot, with people waiting to get their hands on the truck's famous $14 lobster rolls (made with, yes, actual Maine lobster).
"I love lobster rolls. You can't find them anywhere in the Valley," customer Dan Dias said. "So I saw [this], following News10 on Facebook, so I said, 'hey, I'm going to go over there, wait a while and get a lobster roll or two.'"
Dias drove to Yolo Brewing from Folsom for his lobster roll fix before heading home to Stockton.
