Bar Gives Sarcastic Response to Starbucks’ Cease and Desist Letter [Details]

Rucuss staffDecember 31, 2013

Starbucks values the names of its beverages.

And to prove it, the coffeehouse chain sent out a cease and desist letter to Exit 6 Pub and Brewery. Starbucks demanded that the Cotteville, Missouri small business change the name of one of their beers called “Frappicino.” Starbucks didn’t want their beer mistaken for their own “Frappuccino.”

Owner Jeff Britton of Exit 6 Pub and Brewery had no choice but to comply. But before he did he made sure he replied to the request in the most sarcastic way he could. Britton apologized for “any damage” his bar caused before he began his sarcastic banter.

“I would like for both [attorney Anessa] Owen Kramer and Mr Bucks to rest assured we meant no deception, confusion, or mistaking in the naming of the beer F Word,” Britton said. “We never thought that our beer drinking customers would have thought that the alcoholic beverage coming out of the tap would have actually been coffee from one of the many, many, many stores located a few blocks away. I guess that with there being a Starbucks on every corner of every block in every city that some people may think they could get a Starbucks at a local bar. So that was our mistake.”

Britton even attached a $6 check for the profit the beer made.

“We just want to help a business like Starbucks,” Britton said after attaching the check. “Us small business owners need to stick together.”
