I had always heard they chose the name because at the time they were founded, Philadelphia had a national reputation for fine cuisine.

This is from the wikipedia page for Philadelphia Cream Cheese:

Quote:
Ironically, despite its name, Philadelphia Cream Cheese was invented in New York, not Philadelphia.[1] In 1872 William Lawrence, a dairyman from Chester, New York, attempted to make Neufchâtel, a tangy, crumblier cheese product that was popular in Europe at the time. Instead he accidentally added an excessive amount of cream and created a richer, more spreadable cheese, which would eventually be called "cream cheese". It was not marketed as "Philadelphia Cream Cheese" until 1880. That year, Lawrence partnered with A.L. Reynolds, a cheese distributor in New York to sell larger quantities of cream cheese. At the time, Philadelphia, PA, and the surrounding area had a reputation for its high-quality dairy farms and creamier cheese products, so they decided to use the name "Philadelphia" on the foil-wrapped blocks of their cream cheese. The company went through some changes over the years and the trademarked Philadelphia name was sold to the Phenix Cheese Company in South Edmeston, New York. In 1928, Phenix merged with Kraft to form the Kraft-Phenix Cheese Company. It has remained a staple product in the average household and in many eateries and bagel shops worldwide.[2][3]

  • I only including branding for places in "major" metros. So, no Santa Cruz, Avery Island, etc.

The old Moerlein Brewery is now Rhinegeist (not-so) microbrewery. You can see my house from the rooftop bar: https://rhinegeist.com/visit-us/rooftop/

There is a 14 kilometer running event in Cincinnati called the Hudy 14k. http://hudy14krun.com/#/main
Interesting backstory. The branding is still Boston specific, though.

i dk about that. maybe there is a difference between boutique and craft, but really sierra nevada and anchor steam were famously the first 'craft' beers to be widely available throughout the 1980s. i never saw hudy or christian moerlein anywhere in northern ohio back then.

its very true about sam adams though. i believe the guy who took it to boston (as a brand) is or was actually from cinci. that story is kind of famous, i am surprized beer fans do not seem to know it very well.

regardless, the rise and fall and rise again of good beer in america is a very interesting history!

Spotify maybe not so closely tied with specifically Stockholm when i think of it, but Volvo definitely with Gothenburg. Atleast in Sweden.

Here are some more:

Munich: Volvo reminded me that we need an entry for Munich: BMW is "Bayerische Motoren Werke" or "Bavarian Motor Works"

Amsterdam: Amstel Beer is named after the Amstel river, to which Amsterdam owes its name, and the entire river from source to mouth is within the Amsterdam metro area, so its pretty specific to Amsterdam

Dublin: Dubliner Cheese. It's a specific brand of cheese made by the Carberry company in Ireland. You can find it at most US grocery stores.

Boston: Boston Dynamics.. robotics company that makes those robotic dogs

Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire: historic village where some guy named Martin started a car company named Aston Martin

Nokia, Finland: historic village after which the Nokia Company is named

Duluth, Minnesota: Duluth Trading Company.. clothing brand

Added entries for Dublin, Omaha, New York, and Philadelphia. Left BMW off because the branding is for the state of Bavaria, not specifically Munich. Also removed NECCO from Boston because it's regional, not specific to Boston.

I can honestly say that the only time I was ever in a Miami Subs was very late at night when I was very stoned…. which is to say, many times.

Millions of people say "el-lay" to refer to Los Angeles, where as most people don't say "es-eff" to refer to San Francisco (SFO) or "dee-eff-duhbuhyoo" to refer to Dallas-Forth Worth (DFW).

^ I have heard people say "Ohhhh Arrrr Deee" (ORD) aloud when talking, but that's strictly as a reference to O'Hare airport itself, not the city of Chicago in general.

Curiously, Midway airport is always just plain old "midway", Ive never heard anyone say its airport code (MDW) aloud when speaking.

Yeah, I used to think Subway was a NY brand, but apparently it was founded in Seattle.

People do refer to Atlanta as "The ATL," which is their airport code.
