Are ‘Breastaurants’ a Thing Now?
Anyone who wants to toss around the term "breastaurant" better think twice -- it could cost you.
Food establishments like Hooters or Twin Peaks aren't allowed to drop the cliche name, just for the sake of being silly anymore.
According to the SFGate the Austin burger and bar chain, Bikinis Bar and Grill wants the rights to the kitchy term. They want it so bad, that they have officially filed a trademark for the term with the US Patent and Trademark office that they can be the only company in the country that will be able to describe themselves as a “breastaurant”.
“We’re really excited about receiving this federal trademark,” founder and CEO Doug Guller said in a statement. “Our team has worked hard over the last seven years to offer a unique experience to our fans.”
