Sixty miles west of Houston, there is a small town named Bellville. One restaurant is getting a lot of national attention after the owners of the restaurant announced that they were changing their French-theme and seafood menu to All-American food with a special name and theme of its own.
The restaurant’s new name will be Trump Cafe and it will also have signature items named after the Republican presidential nominee and reality TV star, Donald Trump.
The owners of the restaurant, Eddie and Su Hawa, said that the name change has been in the works and was agreed upon by all employees. The Hawas made the decision to change the name of his restaurant to Trump Cafe in order to show their support for Donald Trump for president. Win or lose, the Hawas said the name change will remain.
Su Hawa said, “He [Trump] loves America and we hope he will be president.” Also, Hawa shared, “People like the name, they’re supporting him.”
The name change to Trump Cafe has gotten mixed reviews on the restaurant’s Facebook page. There are only a few posts and comments addressing the change so far. Some are supportive and others offer intense criticism.
One person did a vulgar play on two of Trump’s past controversial and vile statements.
Another guy warned the owners about copyright infringement and told them Trump will likely sue them.
A couple of people offered their support, even though one of them doesn’t support Trump.
One woman let the restaurant know that they will no longer receive her patronage.
Will this restaurant’s decision be a positive one for their business? Bellville is the county seat for Austin County which voted for Republican Greg Abbott over Democrat Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis in the 2014 gubernatorial election 81-percent to 17-percent. So, perhaps the name change will not hurt them too much.
But, could the gentleman who warned them that Trump will likely sue them be correct? Given Trump’s propensity to sue, he could be right.
