Bubba Gump Shrimp Company

En mi primera salida por el centro de Manhattan, en una de las primeras calles que piso me encuentro con un Restaurante llamado Bubbagump, y recuerdo que ese nombre viene de la película Forrest Gump. Investigando un poco averigué que es una cadena que surgió aprovechando la película de Forrest Gump.

My first day in New York I remember that in one of the first streets I saw a restaurant called Bubbagump, like in the Forrest Gump's movie. According to Wikipedia: "In 1995, Viacom Consumer Products, the licensing division for Viacom (the parent of Paramount Pictures), approached Rusty Pelican's CEO, Scott Barnet, and partner, Gordon Miles, with the idea of a chain of family-style shrimp restaurants carrying out the "Forrest Gump" theme. Soon after, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurants, Inc. was formed as a new restaurant chain in a joint enterprise with Paramount Pictures. San Clemente, California-based Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurants, Inc. and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Intl. LLC operate or franchise the restaurants as well as "Capi's Italian Kitchen", "Mai Tai Bar", and the sole remaining Rusty Pelican restaurant in Newport Beach, California. Rusty Pelican locations in other cities were sold to Landry Seafood Restaurants. Although the fictional restaurant chain is based in Alabama, the actual chain ironically has no locations in that state".
