Legends Foods Corp Approves Name Change to Republic of Texas Brands Incorporated

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 4, 2011) - Legends Foods Corporation Board of Directors announced that at a board meeting on September 28th, a proposal from President & CEO Laurence Briggs to change the name Legends Foods Corporation (PINKSHEETS: LJWY) to Republic of Texas Brands Incorporated was approved. The name change was ratified by shareholders representing a majority of the Company's common stockholders. A CUSIP and symbol change will follow.

In addition to the name change, the last two weeks of September yielded positive results for Republic of Texas Brands Incorporated. The Company acquired the prestigious domain name www.republicoftexas.com, giving them an exceptional domain from which to launch operations. The Company also received confirmation from their trademark attorneys that the brand including the Texas battle flag was accepted for trademark.

Mr. Briggs stated, "The name change represents the identity of our operational brands and ability to broaden the Company's activities into licensing of this prestigious brand throughout the world. These two events are huge in the effect on the potential to license the brand in other areas outside our expertise or where there is an appropriate market."

In order to ensure the Company has all of the proper Trademarks/Intellectual Property rights, Republic of Texas Brands Incorporated and/or its subsidiaries have recently filed the following trademarks using its unique logo: Republic of Texas Food Company, Republic of Texas Chocolate factory, Republic of Texas Apparel Company and Republic of Texas Brands.

The launch of the Republic of Texas Food Company will take place this first week of October with the rollout of the eCommerce sites. The first site, www.MamaRosaTamales.com went live Monday, October 3rd. The Corporate gift catalog and retail and merchandising will follow this week.

The agreement to acquire Mary of Puddin Hill has technically expired and is currently being reworked between the owners of MPH and the Republic of Texas Food Company executive management team.
