Condensed Summary

When It Comes to Restaurant Names, Trademarks are Your Best Friend

The answer is clear – you trademark a restaurant name. Trademarks are specifically designed to protect brand identifiers like restaurant names, logos, and slogans.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) accepts applications to trademark restaurant names, and applicants register trademarks for restaurant names (and logos) every day. Trademarking a restaurant name offers strong and broad protection, ensuring that you have the exclusive legal right to use the name and prevent the use of any mark that is identical or confusingly similar to it.

Why Trademark a Restaurant Name Instead of Copyrighting It?

Trademarks protect brands, like names of restaurants.  

Summing Up: Trademark Your Restaurant Name for the Best Protection

So there you have it! Next time someone asks you whether to copyright or trademark a restaurant name, you can confidently tell them to go for a trademark registration. This option provides stronger and more comprehensive legal protection for business owners looking to safeguard their restaurant’s names and brand identifiers.
