House of Q is pleased to announce that after a number of years of going through the application and legal process that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has awarded two additional registered trademarks for the company.
Each individual application identifies different categories of services or wares thus allowing companies or individuals intellectual property protection. House of Q added five different categories with the recent applications to their already registered trademark from 2013.
BBQ Brian Misko describes the registrations as “a significant step forward and allows us to have better corporate identity and branding in the USA a major growth area for the company.”
The new trademarks include category coverage for:
- Printed materials such as books and literature
- Wholesale and retail sales and distribution of food products
- Educational and training services
- Food services
The company already has Canadian trademarks in place for similar categories and realized that there was a growing opportunity in the United States for the business.
