Monsta Pizza vs Monster Energy: Bucks company wins!

After over a year of fighting, an Aylesbury Vale business has finally won its row with a major US company. 

Monsta Pizza, based in Wendover, were taken to court by Monster Energy over their branding.

After Monsta Pizza originally won the case in August last year, Monster Energy decided to appeal the decision.

At the end of last week Chris Dominey received a phone call from his lawyer to tell him it had been rejected by the Court of Appeal and they have finally won the case:

"It feels amazing!

"Now I feel like saying 'well, it was just obvious really, wasn't it?'

 "I thought I was dealing with it all pretty well, just carrying on, but I must admit, since we got the word that it has been thrown out and they can't appeal again, I have been floating around in a bit of a daze."

Chris told us the case affected him more than he had realised and that it now feels as though a weight has been lifted.

They saw a huge response when the story first broke.

Chris added:

"I've got a real faith in community now because we started the crowdfunder and people straight away got behind it.

"Every time I go out, someone comes up and says 'Oh, heard about your thing, we're all behind you, keep going!'

"It just totally spurred us on."

So what's next?

Well the pizza company already have several bookings for 2019, thanks to the awareness raised through the campaign.

They are also hoping to expand eventually, to be more than a van and trailer.
