My previous thread helped me narrow down what food I want to primarily be selling in the summer vs. winter months in my resort town (ice cream and soup respectively). I’ll also have appropriate beverages and snacks to go along with ice cream and soup. Now all I need is a good business name!
I was thinking something simple like “Ice Cream Soup”… but I bet there are better names out there.
So what would you call a take out shop that sells mainly ice cream cones in the summer months and hot delicious soup in the winter months?
Spoons [Seasonal Diner]. (Cross a long-handled sundae spoon and a round soup spoon.)
Clever is good, but you don’t want to use a name that conveys no meaning. F’Rex, there was a store near me in California named “Tuesday Morning.” Got the SLIGHTEST clue what their trade was? Me, neither, and I lived near them for five years. Make sure your name incorporates or strongly implies food, and a select subset of food. I think “Spoons” would be deadly, but only if it was coupled with a descriptive subtitle in most uses. In a few years, everyone will know what “Spoons” is… but you have to last that long first, and “Spoons Seasonal Diner” might get you there.
Very few people will patronize a business if they don’t have a clear idea what’s on the inside of the door.
