F.Y.I.

By 1979, Sambo's had 1,117 outlets in 47 American states. However, in the late 1970s, controversy over the chain's name drew protests and lawsuits in communities that viewed the term Sambo as pejorative towards African-Americans, particularly in the Northeastern states. Several of the restaurants were opened as or renamed to "The Jolly Tiger" in locations where the local community passed resolutions forbidding the use of the original name or refused to grant the chain permits...In March 1981, in a further attempt to give the chain a new image the company again renamed some locations, this time to "No Place Like Sam's"... By February 1983, 618 of the locations were renamed Season's Friendly Eating. Several locations were sold to Denny's.

For example: look back at how "Sambos" had to change to "Dennys".

Oops...OK, my bad on this one. Perhaps an urban legend. Just a case where Dennys bought out the Sambos Restaurants.

I know, I was just backing you up with some supporting internet documentation.

Sambo's did change names but they never changed to Denny's.

You were right and wrong.

Sambo's did change their name because some people found it offensive.

Sambo's did not change their name to Denny's.

I see them alot. Orange tractors. They are based about an hour south of me near the PA/MD line.

Also lets not forget NBS Trucking....



Yes a name is important. Tons of LCOs around here using initials, last names, etc. I went with mine because I have long last name, and if i grow the business and decide to sell way down the road, its easier to sell if my name isnt attached to the business name.
