#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Brainstorming on your choice of words to represent your brand is extremely important because these are the first words that your customer hears about your business. I chose to use words like vibrant, chill and delicious to illustrate a deli business that is both comfortable and reliable when it comes to the quality of their products and services. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#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 name:

  • 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:

StarMore Deli & Cafe

EliteCrew

Vibrant Deli

Aeronna Deli

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great deli 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, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

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

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

My customer feedback:

EliteCrew

This sounds like an executive place to eat.

StarMore Deli & Cafe

This sounds like a fancy and colorful deli.

Aeronna Deli

This sounds like a deli close to the airport.

Vibrant Deli

This sounds like a fast-paced deli that is mostly patronized by young people.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great deli business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also 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 deli businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Cadillac Cafe Logo | BusinessNameGenerator.com

Cadillac Cafe uses a classical name that is already associated with a high-level of finesse and style. This name implies that they are top class and exquisite.

Cochon Butcher Logo

Cochon Butcher already explains what their Deli is about by using the word butcher, meats of different types, the name is catchy and descriptive without unnecessary word inclusion.

Central Ave Gourmet Deli Logo

Central Ave Gourmet Deli uses their prime location of Central Ave, to make them THE deli in that area. If you’re business is in a advantageous or popular location, consider adding it to your name and try owning the area.

5 Tips for naming your deli 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 names.

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 competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. 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.

Avoid literally describing your name as this makes you liable to fall into the error of using already overused words like snacks, lunch, and fast food. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses 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 deli business named “Nate ‘n’ Al Delicatessen”.

Literally, this brandable name which makes them quite marketable and unique.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (CappaCaleDeli, SpringSense)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Immaculate Cuisine: Immaculate represents something without blemish, in this case, it represents a meal without flaws, a perfect meal)
  • 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 deli business names could be:

  • Hoagie Deli
  • Kosher Deli
  • Charcuterie Cuisine

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, shortening Immaculate Cuisine to Imma Cuisine is a step backward.

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.
