In a press release, Kondoudis said:
“Clearly, Yum! Brands see the potential of the Metaverse and are preparing its trademarks and brands for the virtual economy that will dominate it.”
Kondoudis also added that other food companies also filed for trademarks for their name and logo for drinks and foods. Among these are Mcdonald’s, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell.
Food Industry Moves Into Metaverse
Over the past months, many companies from the food industry made a move to the metaverse. Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced its plans to move into Web3. According to reports, the world’s largest food chain applied for ten metaverse patents. This will allow them to deliver food online and in person.
Dunkin Donuts is also another restaurant that recently filed trademark applications on the 25th. Burger King, Hooters, Panda Express, and Wendy’s are others who have filed trademark applications as well. These applications filed in the past few days and weeks show that the food industry is getting ready to occupy the Metaverse.
