Poll: Should the Name Bobbi's Stay or Go?

Bobbi's Coffee Shop may reopen soon, should it open under a new name?

Bobbi Thorne, the original owner of Bobbi's Coffee Shop, is upset that the business was closed for failure to pay rent and for not living up to her standards. She'd like her name taken off the diner.

The potential new owner, Bill Dancer, wants to keep the name. Legally, he has that right.

Also, as some readers have pointed out Bobbi Thorne's reputation is intact and impeccable and the recent decline in the quality at the coffee shop is no reflection on her.

What say you Cupertino? Does it matter to you?

Take our poll and let us know what you think.

Editor's note: My thanks to Gary Jones for the idea of running this poll!

I know Bobbi and if she believes her name is being tarnished and she would like her name removed then it should be removed. However, my inner self loves the Bobbi name because it reminds me of the relationship that she has to our family and it is an opportunity to remember the fun times and the milkshakes.

Roger, I think you nailed it. I think that's what the community is trying to communicate to Bobbi. It's the memories SHE helped create that live on, right?

Leave the name the same and Bobbi gets free food and coffee whenever she likes.

I imagine the new owners bought the restaurant with the tradition of bobbi's in mind. I know that they've eaten there for years themselves. apparently they're not the party hurting the name.
