Trademarks

According to SOUK chef Najat Kaanache, she invented the "cronut" name to describe "creative doughnuts" and holds the trademark in Dallas, noting that "right now [Ansel] has a good faith trademark application on file, meaning he had no prior knowledge in any realm." Kaanache has filed a protection application with the Patent and Trademark Office, which is pending. [D Mag] [Photo: Facebook]
