CALABASH—When it comes to use of the business names “Miss Calabash” and/or “Mrs. Calabash,” who’s got the right?
According to two longtime Calabash restaurant owners, nobody has the right but them.
Cousins Shaun Bellamy and Crystal Coleman-Nixon, respective owners of Ella’s and Beck’s and Coleman’s Original Calabash restaurants, said they recently filed for trademark rights to the names.
Their action came after learning owners planned to name a new restaurant in town “Miss Calabash.”
