DeanO’s Pizza Seeks and Finds New Pizza Name
DeanO’s Pizza in Lafayette began serving a new pizza this past August to its customers, giving it a simple name: Boudin Pizza. Unbeknownst to DeanO’s at the time of its debut, Pastime Restaurant in Baton Rouge created its own Boudin Pizza more than a decade ago, trade-marking the name to protect its uniqueness. DeanO’s was quickly notified of the trademarked pizza name, and decided to solve the situation through Facebook. A contest was held, through the DeanO’s Facebook page, requiring a simple pizza name suggestion. There were over 700 suggestions entered on the site, and the DeanO’s staff then narrowed down the submissions. The winning name chosen is the Cajun Violation.
