A judge recommends that Grubhub stop using its new logo to avoid confusion with meal kit company Home Chef’s trademark. But that doesn't mean the Chicago-based food ordering company now has to ditch its new design.
Grubhub and its parent company, Just Eat Takeaway.com, filed a complaint in Chicago federal court last fall, asking the court to declare that its new logo—a house with a fork and knife inside—does not infringe on Home Chef’s trademark rights. In a loss for Grubhub, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cummings declared the two logos are similar enough they could cause confusion. (Read the complaint below this story.)
