Food chains Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pizza Hut have filed trademark applications for non-fungible tokens and metaverse products and services.
The metaverse trademark attorney, Michael Kondoudis, says that the applications reached the US Patent and Trademark office on March 25, 2022.
The filing aims to enable the brands to offer virtual products and services like online virtual restaurants, virtual food and beverages, and retail services.
Other fast-food brands that have joined the bandwagon include McDonald’s, Panera Bread, Burger King, and Panda Express.
Major brands across multiple sectors have recently shown interest in metaverse by filing trademarks. Meta recently applied to offer virtual services and crypto trading in the space.
Metaverse has also attracted the attention of celebrities and sport personalities who have also moved to register their brands as trademarks.
