From the WJZ Channel 13 news report:
In her defense, CafÃ© Hon owner Denise Whiting said: âI do not own the word âHon.ââ
The usually perky Whitingâobviously affected by the protestersâsaid theyâre misinformed about the basics of business branding.
âIâm a very hard working entrepreneur,â Whiting said. âI love Hampden, and I love baltimore, and Iâve spent a lot of time and energy doing whatever I can positive for this city.â
The manager of the Hontown Gift Shop also creates Hon Christmas ornaments.
âQuite frankly, I think itâs sad,â said Debbie Howard, manager of Hontown. âI think sheâs done everything to support the word Hon, the culture of Hon. She supports local artists. Sheâs a wonderful person, and we love her.â
