Check out this great story from Patch on Thomas Jones, owner of the South Milwaukee Cousins Subs restaurant, and three others.
It celebrates Jones’ commitment to charity, including his recent support of the Growing South Milwaukee community garden efforts. From it …
At 16 years old, he started working at Cousin’s Subs. After gaining experience in business, working his way through college and the corporate office setting, he quickly realized that working in the restaurant is where he wanted to be.
In 2006, he purchased an existing Cousins Subs in South Milwaukee, and now owns four restaurants in Franklin, South Milwaukee, Oak Creek and Greenfield.
As his career in the restaurant industry grew, his means to express gratitude and charity did as well. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg for Jones. Through his businesses, he has donated more than $20,000 to local organizations in 2017 alone.
“Through giving back, I hope to empower individuals to support and help themselves so that they can positively contribute to society at large,” Jones told Patch. You cannot help others if you aren’t well. So, whether that is through gardening and eating clean foods like fruits and vegetables, or overcoming drug addictions, emotional and mental issues, or developing a healthy lifestyle through fitness and eating, it’s important to give back to causes that assist community members in being the best versions of themselves.”
Consider it another example of a South Milwaukee business owner doing business the right way. Thankfully, we have a lot of them.
