A: Dear Mrs or Mr,

as there is no refference in your question to the mentioned existing trademark, I will only try to answer according to provided information.

These two trademarks "Blend smothie and salad bar" and "Blend&Co", considering they are both in same territory, and both used in the same segment, can be considered as similar, in some degree. However only in respect to the word "Blend". I think if you use your mark locally and do not try to register it as trademark, you should be okay. It is no guaranteed, and it would require further research and maybe some strategy.

If you have further questions regarding IP, trademarks and designs, I will gladly help you.

I wish you good luck with your brand and business!
