Twisted Taco Franchise, Inc. v. Stella Lee and Skull Queens, LLC, Civil Action No. 1:22-cv-04314 (N.D. Ga., Oct. 30, 2022)

The Twisted Taco restaurant franchise, an Atlanta-based corporation specializing in Mexican cuisine and tacos, is going after two out-of-state entities accused of unlicensed use of the registered mark “Twisted Taco.”

Defendants Stella Lee and Skull Queens are accused of using confusingly similar imitations of the mark on social media and with a food truck operating in Missouri. Similarly, Defendant Drunken Waffle is accused of closely mimicking the mark in advertisements, on social media, and on a food truck operating in Ohio. Prior to filing the complaints, the Plaintiff issued multiple Cease and Desist letters to all Defendants.

The comparable complaints allege violations of Federal trademark infringement, unfair competition, and trademark dilution, and seek permanent injunction, trebled damages, and disgorgement.
