Roscoe's in L.A. gets Rosscoe's to change name in Chicago

CHICAGO The owner of the Chicago restaurant Rosscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles on Wednesday reportedly agreed to change the concept’s name after the operator of a similarly named chain with a long history in Southern California filed a trademark infringement lawsuit.


Herb Hudson, the longtime owner of the five-unit Roscoe’s House of Chicken 'n Waffles, based in Los Angeles, filed suit earlier this week seeking damages for infringing on a federal trademark.



Aday later, Darnell Johnson of Rosscoe's agreed to change the name of his restaurant to Chicago’s Home of Chicken and Waffles.
