    I’ve noticed that the name Jerusalem II is mimicked on kosher pizza store names all over the place, that are unrelated with each other; they’re not franchises. Why do so many pizza stores choose this same name?

    Are you sure it is JII and not JIII? At one time the JII on Ave. J between E.13th and E.14th was related to the one on Ave. M and E.15 and the one in Manhattan; hence the same names.

    The original j2 was/is in Manhattan.
    They had a great reputation so i guess people just grabbed the name.

    There are also JII pizza stores on 18th Avenue, 13th Avenue, and in Woodbourne, Deal, Lakewood, and Ramot, Jerusalem.

    The original name of the one in Manhattan and Brooklyn was the full name Jerusalem II. Colloquially it became known as “J2”. I doubt highly that name was ever “trademarked” or “copyrighted” and therefore others used that name in other places.

    the JII pizza of lakewood opened up a second one in Lakewood & calls it JII Pizza South (its in the south side of lakewood)

    It’s called South since Lakewood is South from Brooklyn (the original.)

    If these locations are truly not under the same ownership, its probably for the same reason that there are 11 “Vinnies” original pizza places listed in Manhattan…unless you are big enough to litigate, the cost of claiming trademark protection for a popular name is prohibitive. Probably easier to get relief through a din torah than civil court order since the rav hamachshir would have to follow the decision of a beis din.

    GH: I don’t know of any of the owners who are complaining about the common name that a din torah is necessary.

    if the lakewood JII 2nd one is called south-with same owner as first one-cause you said its south of brooklyn then why isnt’ both called south or the first JII in lakewood from 10 years ago should be called south. after all its south from brooklyn?
