Oprah Winfrey, the talk show queen will soon be seen expanding her mark in the food and beverage industry with a new chain of food products under the name of Oprah's Kitchen.
The 62-year-old media mogul has quietly filed documents in May requesting to trademark the name Oprah's Kitchen. The documents reveal that Winfrey is planning to feature basic staples like dairy, meat, fish, processed and preserved foods, spices, juices, water, lemonade, baked goods, fresh fruit and vegetables. The line will also cover speciality items such as cut flowers, beer and energy drinks.
The paperwork also shows that Winfrey is considering a line of Oprah bacon, baked beans, sorbet, pickles, canned fish, fruit leather and even caviar within her food brand.
Winfrey is already well known for recipes in her magazine and TV shows and her annual Favorite Things list. In an interview with TMZ, Catherine Farrelly, a partner at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein and Selz said: "Oprah developed an incredible amount of good will through her show (and) my expectation is that she will use that good will to expand her brand."
This chain of food products would be the latest extension of Winfrey's food-related enterprises.
