South Africa, Cape Town – According to a news report, the stand-off between CBD food truck company Rack ’n Grill and RocoMamas has been resolved.
After meeting RocoMamas yesterday, Kasu posted on Twitter: ’’We didn’t get the opportunity to say that we met with Rocomama today and have resolved the matter.
’’We have resolved amongst other things to be shared in due course, that I will continue using the name Smash Burger on my menu and advertising.’’
The Spur Group, which owns RocoMamas, was last week accused of corporate bullying tactics after it ordered chef and food truck owner Muammer Kasu in an email last Wednesday to change the name of his “Smash Burger” as they are the registered proprietor of the “Smash Burger” brand.
Well done to @RacknGrill for winning the fight! #smashburger remains on his menu – but DON’T for one minute think that @rocomamas are the good guys! Im@out of their place forever! Bullies are bullies no matter what! #boycotRocomas

Spur Group spokesperson Moshe Apleni said the RocoMamas management had reached out to Kasu to set up a meeting and find an amicable solution.
We didn’t get the opportunity to say that we met with Rocomama today and have resolved the matter.
We have resolved amongst other things to be shared in due course, that I will continue using the name Smash Burger on my menu and advertising.
