Restaurant Agrees to Remove Sign Due to Its Controversial Name

An owner of a French-Vietnamese restaurant on the verge of opening in Keene, N.H., is butting heads with a city manager over the eatery’s name, which sounds like a profanity.
Pho Keene Great, a pun on the Vietnamese dish pho (pronounced “fuh”) and the name of the town, is scheduled to open in March; however, Fox News reports that City Manager Elizabeth Dragon said the owner, Isabelle Jolie, never received permission to hang the sign outside the restaurant.
“City manager has deemed our business name as offensive and a permanent sign with our business name, will not be allowed. The one that is pictured, is a temporary sign, and it was requested that we take it down due to her opinion that it is offensive name and a contract violation as it relates to City ordinance,” the restaurant’s social media post read. Jolie agreed to remove the temporary sign.
The restaurant polled users and found that 3,400 found the sign to be not offensive, while 117 voted that it was offensive.

I think they're marketing geniuses. If somebody has a problem with the sign, don't pho keene read it.
