A new juice shop has been opened in the UK that bears a striking resemblance to Facebook's logo.

The sign outside the juice bar, located in Cardiff, Wales, named 'Facefood' looks exactly like the Facebook logo.

The manager of Facefood said many people had been taking pictures of the distinctive facade.

Facebook has confirmed it is examining the use of the sign, the BBC reports.

Facefood manager Samir Bougaci, who is originally from Algeria and who now lives in Cardiff, said the business had not sought permission from Facebook.

"We have not spoken with Facebook - we have not heard from them," the report quoted him, as saying.

Bougaci said he and his business partner did not believe there would be ramifications as a result of adopting the design.

He said they had heard of different shops around the world along similar lines.

According to the report, a quick Internet search reveals a number of shops also called Facefood in different countries, such as the United States, Egypt, France, Syria and Germany, which also use a similar logo. (ANI)
