The 2017 legal row of the pizzeria
It serves the best pizzas in the world. It started in 1870 in Naples and has branches in Tokyo, Rome, and London.
In early 2017, it had started a branch in Stoke Newington but due to some violations by the person owning the franchise, the pizzeria company terminated its contract with it in September 2017 and opened a new branch in Baker Street.
But the Stoke Newington franchise owner continued to use its trademark and hence there was a bitter legal row between the two.
