When we started this company Lindsay came up with the name “Maid Green”. We thought it was clever and original, until we found out that there was already a “Maid Green” in Miami, Florida but we decided to go with it anyway. For one thing we weren’t sure if it would take off and be a successful business.
Well, here we are 3 years later, the business is doing well and Lindsay and I have our eyes on the future. For us to take the company to the next level we needed a unique name that we could trademark. Since we start (I think we were the second Maid Green after the company in Miami) Maid Greens’ have been popping up all over the place. A google search reveals half a dozen or more with more than a few in California. On top of that there is a company that owns the trademark to “The Green Maids” which makes it very difficult for any of the “Maid Greens” out there to trademark their name. We needed to stand out from the crowd and we needed to be able to protect our name with a trademark.
