Big Shef. Schlitz beer. Ducaine grills. Emerson radios. All zombie brands. They are now made by companies not being able to trace continuous lineage to the organization that first produced goods and/or services under that brand name. The copyright and trademark laws today aid and abet this deception.
The nearest Hardees is about 60 miles from me, way out on Long island. I don’t know if they are offering this "Big Zombie", but if they were, how could they possible replicate it? The buns were probably made from a different formula that the rest of the Hardees buns used today. Getting the sauce/dressing right? Fat chance. Is the variety of lettuce the Big Shef used the same as Hardees is using now? Getting all of these details just right is what makes a Big Shef genuine.
Have any of the current Hardees’ product managers ever tasted a Big Shef at a Burger Chef before Hardees bought up the operation? Institutional memories are very short today. I am not interestered in hearing Hardees’ lawyering. This is false advertising.
