Farrow wins Athena award

The Waukesha County Chamber of Commerce will present the 2003 Athena Award to Margaret A. Farrow, former lieutenant governor of Wisconsin and former state senator. The award will be presented to Farrow at the chamber’s W.O.M.E.N. luncheon at noon on Thursday, Nov. 13, at the Milwaukee Marriott West in Waukesha.
The Athena award recognizes a person who has achieved business excellence, serves the community and assists women in reaching their full leadership potential. Farrow was nominated and selected because she serves as a positive role model to many young women in the community, for her hard work and dedication to the state of Wisconsin, and for being able to "break through the glass ceiling." Last year’s inaugural Athena Award winner was Bev Chappie.
Annually, the Athena Award is presented in hundreds of cities throughout the United States and Canada, and takes the form of a hand-cast bronze sculpture symbolizing the strength, courage and wisdom of the recipient.
The Waukesha County Chamber of Commerce is offering this award through their W.O.M.E.N. organization, which stands for Women Owners, Managers, and Executives Networking. The goal of the organization is to provide education and networking opportunities for women in the workplace.
For more information on W.O.M.E.N. or to register for the luncheon, call 262-542-4249.

Cousins Subs expanding in Twin Cities
Cousins Subs is planning to increase the number of restaurants it has in the Twin Cities area from 14 to 50 within the next five years.
Menomonee Falls-based Cousins Submarines Inc. currently has about 200 restaurants in 10 states.
Traditionally Cousins has opened about 20 franchises a year. Company officials hope to increase the expansion rate to about 35 to 50 restaurants a year.
Cousins officials are also planning to add more restaurants in the Dallas and Los Angeles areas, said Paul Hazlinger, director of franchise operations for Cousins Subs. Currently, Cousins has three restaurants in the Dallas area and one in the Los Angeles area.
"We don’t want to be a Subway or a Quiznos," Hazlinger said. "We don’t want 12,000 stores. We want to maintain our quality and grow the business in areas where we already exist, and to be a significant player in markets that we’re already in."
