    Harvey's name that burger contest - Epic FAIL!

    Post by Cap'n Clutch on Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:44 am

    I know this is old news but I was off for 2 and a half months and it still bugs me. Some one actually won a contest with this unimaginative and uninspired name? Not only that but the name is already being used by ARBY's for crying out loud.

    HARVEYS


    ARBYS

    Well considering Harvey's is owned by the Cara corporation which also owns Swiss Chalet, Montana's, Milestone's and Kelsey's and that at least two of those restaurants have "Great Canadian" sandwiches/burgers on their menus, it's not entirely surprising at all.

    Uninspired? Yes. To be expected? Yes.

    Why bother with a contest if you're just going to copy someone else?

    Arby's - no Harvey's in the US.

    They should called it "The Amazing Cheap Sub-Par Gristle-n-Fat Burger" or maybe "The Clogger"

    Maybe Harvey's is the Grat Canadian Burger, but Arby's is the Great Canadian Sandwich. See the difference? Smile
