According to an article from NBC Chicago, the famous Cousins Maine Lobster is opening up multiple restaurants in the Chicagoland area, and bringing 5 food trucks to Illinois as well. In the article, they say...

"The chain announced it will open two brick-and-mortar restaurants and five food trucks, with the first food truck expected to begin operating in early 2024, according to a news release. Signature offerings, such as authentic Maine Lobster Rolls, Lobster Grilled Cheese, Lobster Tacos, New England Clam Chowder, will be available on the first food truck. The brick-and-mortar locations will have additional menu items, including Maine whole-belly fried clams as well as fish and chips."

I feel like there is a space for seafood in Illinois, there isn't much in the way of great seafood here now. Also, their main competition is Red Lobster and when is the last time you went to a Red Lobster or heard of someone opening a new Red Lobster near you? I hope they bring the food trucks down here to Central Illinois, it would be great to check out everything they have without having to go up to Chicagoland.
