HARRISBURG, Pa. – 7-Eleven, the Texas based convenience store chain is suing a small “mom and pop” business in York County for trademark infringement and unfair competition. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Harrisburg on Thursday. It claims that Asfand Khan, owner of Super 7 Food Mart, LLC, 11 North Main Street, York New Salem adopted the name Super-7 and logo featuring a Arabic numeral “7” displayed in the color red to trade upon the fame and goodwill represented by 7-Eleven’s name, mark and logo.

7-Eleven is asking the court order Asfand Khan to stop using the Super 7 logo and name.  The company also asks the court to order Khan and Super 7 Food Mart, LLC three times such damages 7-Eleven has suffered as a result of infringement, unfair competition and dilution and three times all profits wrongfully derived by Khan and Super 7 Mart, LLC from using the Super 7 logo plus attorney’s fees.

The company is also asking that all signs, labels, prints, packages, wrappers, receptacles and advertisements bearing the name or mark Super-7 logo be surrendered for destruction.
