Chink’s Steaks gets a name change

 

(UPI) – The owner of a Philadelphia restaurant known as Chink's Steaks since 1949 has officially changed the name to Joe's Steaks.

Joe Groh, 50, who went to work at Chink's when he was 16 and took ownership of the business in 1999, said the first indication that the name would have to be changed came in 2003, when he received a complaint from an Asian American student, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday.

The eatery had been named for its founder, Samuel "Chink" Sherman, who was given the nickname in grade school as a result of his almond shaped eyes.

However, Groh said it was time for the name of the restaurant to change with the times.
