Is Linda Bean the next Frank Perdue?

All that talk about trademarking this and trademarking that, as well as searching for a cuter name for claws, has me wondering.

  1. Interesting article. She comes off maybe too cocky, like she can single handedly save the lobster. But, she's throwing a lot of money at it, isn't she? The 'Lobster Cuddler' rename for lobster claws is just silly.

      "Lobster Cuddlers" is beyond silly. It's downright insane. As is the attempt to trademark the phrase "In a Class by Itself." I read the article and concluded that it's a good thing this woman already has a lot of money, because her ideas don't exactly scream "goldmine" to me.

        Have you guys tasted her "Perfect" Maine Lobster Rolls? BLECH!! The worst I've ever tasted. Tiny, expensive, and they put a mayo blend ON the bun and then the previously frozen lobster!!! $15.50 for a 1/4 pound. With my iced tea (which came in a plastic cup with no lemon) total: $19.35. Go to Liam McGuire's in Falmouth Center. $24 bucks but worth every bite.
