Additional Information on Trademark Registration for Pennsylvania Businesses
The diverse economy of Pennsylvania and its mix of urban and rural areas makes it a great state to open a new business. Whether you plan to open a roofing business in Harrisburg or expand your restaurant chain in Philadelphia, you may be wondering how to protect your brand. The best way to do this is through trademark registration and the assistance from a Pennsylvania trademark attorney.
Consider this scenario: Kara is a health enthusiast living in the Pittsburgh suburb of Upper St. Clair. She’s always wanted to open her own business, and one morning, while juicing some fruits and vegetables for breakfast, an idea starts to form. Kara decides to open her own juice cart to sell freshly squeezed juices to visitors of the many parks in the area. She gets right to work designing her logo and custom juice cart, which includes the business name she’s chosen, Squeezed. Kara orders cups, napkins, menus, and more all containing the Squeezed name. It’s a costly investment, but Kara knows that building a strong brand is essential to her future success.
Unfortunately, while Kara seems to have thought of everything to establish her brand, she overlooked the importance of trademark registration. Several months after the Squeezed cart opens and Kara has seen success, she learns some devastating news. A large beverage brand has developed its own line of bottled juices with the same name. Because the beverage company applied for trademark registration months before Kara opened her business, they are well within their rights to ask her to close down until she has rebranded her business. Don’t put off protecting your brand and investment. If you’ve been in business for years or you are still in the development phase, now is the time to register your trademark.
