Order of Suspension of Trading; in the Matter of Accel Brands,

September 27, 2016.
    It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is 
a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of 
Accel Brands, Inc. (``Accel Brands'') (CIK No. 0001077800) because it 
has not filed any periodic reports since the period ended March 31, 
2015, and the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission has 
independently endeavored to determine whether the company is operating 
and the company has failed to respond to the Commission's inquiry about 
its operating status. Accel Brands, formerly known as Accelpath, Inc., 
is a Delaware corporation with its principal place of business listed 
as National Harbor, Maryland with stock quoted on OTC Link (previously 
``Pink Sheets'') operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the ticker 
symbol ACLP.
    The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the 
protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the 
securities of Accel Brands.
    Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the securities of 
Accel Brands is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT on 
September 27, 2016, through 11:59 p.m. EDT on October 10, 2016.

    By the Commission.
Brent J. Fields,
Secretary.
