Butcher’s shop facing legal action from Grill’d

Burger chain Grill’d have threatened a butcher’s shop on Sydney’s northern beaches with legal action for using the word “grill”.

Tender Gourmet Butchery has a sign in front of the shop with the word ‘grill’ to advertise that they sell grilled meat.

Grill’s has sent them a legal letter claiming he can’t use the word because of the red writing and font similar to theirs.

Tender Gourmet Butchery founder Adam Stratton tells Ben Fordham it would be very difficult for him to change the sign.

“We’re just trying to explain to people you can get carvary, or grill, or burgers there and they’ve taken offence to using the word ‘grill’.

“It’s a pretty common word and I didn’t realise you could trademark a common word like that.

“It makes me feel like they’re just trying to bully me a little bit about it.”
