A local cookie company’s legal dispute with a national competitor has been baked to completion.
Richmond-based Red Eye Cookie Co. earlier this month reached a settlement in trademark infringement case filed against it last year by Insomnia Cookies. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Insomnia, which filed suit in Charlottesville federal court in January 2017, claimed Red Eye’s business model, logo and brand were too similar to its own. Each company offers late-night cookie delivery and their logos both feature a crescent circle.
The suit was prompted by Red Eye opening a Charlottesville store last year within a block of an Insomnia location. The brands also have stores across the street from one another in Richmond at 935 and 918 W. Grace St., respectively.
