Tony Chachere’s Suing Big Easy Foods, You Decide [Poll]
Late last week Tony Chachere’s filed a lawsuit against Big Easy Foods, a company that up until a few months ago they had a partnership with.
“We believe they have hijacked our brand,” says Don Chachere, Jr., president of Tony Chachere’s.
Although the colors aren’t the same, Tony’s feels that the look and feel of their product has been jeopardized.
Of course the folks at Big Easy have other thoughts on the matter. They feel that their packaging does not borrow from the branding of Tony’s.
“Those are our recipes. We were making those things long before we even went with Tony Chachere’s and that’s the most important thing to remember here,” says a rep for Big Easy.
