#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “food”, “healthy”, “flavour” and “kitchen”. You can see that while these words can be related to cooking, they also suggest that you can expect delicious and nutritious meals from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:

Meals on Demand

Deliciously Vegan

Pot & Pan Cooking Co.

Premium Ingredients Cooking

Meat & Veggies

Taste the Best

Fine Chefs

#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of names:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

My Shortlist:

Simply Food

Pot & Pan Cooking Co.

Sweet Cuisine

Classy Cuisine

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great cooking business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends as they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they may not be your ideal customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and does it represent your business the way you intended?

My customer feedback:

Simply Food

This name conveys a business that’s focused on food.

Pot & Pan Cooking Co.

This name conveys an image of a busy kitchen with pots and pans hanging overhead.

Sweet Cuisine

This name conveys the idea of a kitchen full of baked cakes and treats.

Classy Cuisine

This name conveys an upscale kitchen serving fancy food.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great cooking business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state. Also be sure to search if the name is available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful cooking businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Chef Revolution Logo

Chef Revolution conveys the image of a cutting edge food business. It is a memorable name because the word revolution promises something different. When paired with chef , it leaves the customer wondering what kind of exciting meals and food this business prepares.

Super Central Logo

Supper Central conveys that this is the business to use for all your supper needs. It gives the customer the idea that this business will supply everything you need for supper.

Nella Cucina Logo

Nella Cucina literally means “shining light kitchen”. It gives the impression of a happy, cheerful place. The use of a different language gives it an exotic twist.

5 Tips for naming your cooking business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business name.

1. Do a competitor analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future. Knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitor’s business name works for them will help you in forming your own business name. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on naming your business, not describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused cooking terms like kitchen, tasty, or home. A more effective business name should convey to customers your business and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real cooking business named “The Chef Upstairs”.

The business successfully portrays themselves as a cozy cooking experience. The Chef Upstairs aims to provide an intimate dining event. At a deeper level though, this name has a very familiar sound to it, making you think that the chef is one of your family, or at the very least, a close neighbour. The chefs at The Chef Upstairs have been successful in creating this atmosphere for many years.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step to getting inside your customer’s mind, a task easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks so they give extra thought to your business among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Sweet Cuisine, Classy Cuisine)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (The Taste Experience – experience can refer to an encounter with food in this instance)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable cooking business names could be:

  • Nuvane Cooking
  • Alomos Cuisine
  • Nurilo Kitchen

You can find a full list of brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Cooking Passion and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Cooksion, Cossion, Cpassion.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
