The Daiquiri Factory evicted

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. – The Daiquiri Factory was evicted Monday, with the assistance of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office who posted an official eviction notice on the door of the bar and had the locks changed.

In court documents, it says that the Daiquiri Factory was evicted because it failed to pay rent and other fees for the past few months and committed illegal actions. Court documents say the Daiquiri Factory owes more than $2,000 in unpaid rent and fees.

It goes on to say the bar committed illegal actions, such as, the unlawful use of the name “the Daiquiri Factory” and unlawfully using the Gonzaga University Logo.

Right now, they are being sued for using the Daiquiri Factory name because another company says it is their registered trademark. The bar is also being sued by Gonzaga University for using its logo.

For now, the bar is closed and people in the area seem to think it is a good thing.

“Normally, I don't want to see a business go down,” said Dan Mclay, a Spokane resident who is happy about the closure. “We need businesses and I don't want to be hateful to people, but I have zippo, zero, nada sympathy. He could still be in business. I don't know what's wrong with him.”

In a Facebook message, Jamie Pendleton, the owner of the Daiquiri Factory, said the landlord refused his rent payments because of those lawsuits and was just looking for a reason to force them out.

As for employees of the bar, Pendleton says they will have this weekend off and then after that he plans to open a new Daiquiri Factory over by Gonzaga next to Starbucks. He says he is working on signing a new lease right now.
