A pair of San Francisco Bay Area restaurateurs were all set to open their macaroni and cheese specialty restaurant with the name Little Mac when a phone conversation with legal counsel for McDonald’s derailed their plans. It seems the burger giant doesn’t take kindly to restaurants that use “Mac” or “Mc” in their names, citing brand infringement.
Rather than fight, the mac and cheese entrepreneurs, Erin Wade and Alison Arevalo, have put a call out for help in finding a new name. There’s lots of creamy goodness in your future if you come up with the winning name.
