FNHI Subsidiary Worksport Granted First Canadian Trademark
Second trademark and third patent granted in 2019; four other trade mark applications pending
Toronto, Ontario, Aug. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Franchise Holdings International Inc., (OTCQB: FNHI) (“FNHI”) Worksport Ltd.’s parent company, has achieved another milestone in a year characterized by significant financial progress. It has been awarded first full trademark rights to ‘its Worksport trade name in Canada’ for the stylized Worksport logo that has been representing its innovative brand of tonneau covers for the light truck market.
“Now have a more secure, brand identity that closely matches our amazing company culture of entrepreneurs, do-it-yourselfers (DIY), small business owners and outdoors enthusiasts,” said Worksport and FNHI CEO Steven Rossi.
Worksport has applied for a total of six trademarks, with two each in Canada, the U.S. and China. Along with its U.S trademark awarded earlier in the year and its third U.S patent granted in June 2019, Worksport and FNHI’s portfolio of intellectual property is rapidly expanding. The first (and still pending) trademark application occurred in China, reflecting Worksport’s presence there.
“A company is as strong and as valuable as its intellectual property, and we are now protecting our brand identity along with patents for our proprietary and innovative truck bed covers,” Rossi said. “We expect the rest of our applications to be accepted this year. This represents one of the crucial underpinnings of our ambitious growth strategies, which are closer and closer to success.”
