Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese

Philadelphia Cream Cheese was never from Philly. So why do we call it that?

    I remember Alton Brown mentioning this on an episode of Good Eats.
     
    EDIT:  From https://www.philadelphia.co.uk/corporate-information/faq
     
    14. WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF PHILADELPHIA– AND WHO INVENTED IT?
    An American dairyman William Lawrence first produced cream cheese in 1872, and distributed the brand in foil wrappers from 1880 under the name of the Empire Company. He called it Philadelphia after the city which was considered at the time to be the home of top quality food. In 1903, the Phenix Cheese Company of New York bought the business and with it the Philadelphia trademark. Production of the brand increased when Phenix merged with the Kraft Cheese Company in 1928 and new, more consistent manufacturing processes followed. It is now one of the most famous soft white cheese brands in the world.
