Valley Stream, NY asked in Trademark and Intellectual Property for New York

Q: When filling out the USPTO TEAS form to file a trademark, would the class for a restaurant be 043 ?

I am filling out a USPTO TEAS form on behalf of a restaurant that sells food (restaurant and catering services). Would the class be 43 or would I need to be more specific with a term ID like 043-165 for restaurant and catering services.

Thank you.

A: When filing a USPTO TEAS form for a trademark in the context of a restaurant that provides both restaurant and catering services, Class 43 is indeed the appropriate classification. This class broadly covers services related to the provision of food and drink, which typically includes restaurants and catering.

However, it's important to be as specific as possible when defining the services. Using a term ID, such as 043-165, can provide greater clarity and specificity, indicating that your client's services specifically include restaurant and catering services. This helps ensure that the trademark registration accurately reflects the nature of the business and its services.
