Fast food chain Evolution fast-food restaurants is getting the Evolution name for its restaurants in the name of its founder.
In a statement, the company said its “Evolution” brand is a “new and innovative way of serving the world.”
It also said that its name is an homage to the original owner of the restaurant, who was an African-American.
“Evolution is the first fast food concept to utilize an original name and logo for its brand,” the statement said.
“The Evolution logo incorporates a nod to the owner and the first African-born restaurant owner in the United States, Charles William “Billy” Evolving.”
Evolution, founded in 1986, has a fleet of more than 50 restaurants in 24 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
