Four steps to naming your kitchen business

#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Delish”, “Captivation”, “Sizze” and “Flambe”. These words provide a positive look into the kitchen business and paint pictures about the kinds of things you might see, hear or smell while you’re there. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great kitchen 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 you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name keeps it simple and customers know they’ll get something delicious.
When the kitchen wants to provide the idea that the kitchen will make sure there is a show for customers to enjoy as well as delicious food.
You can practically hear the sound of your favorite foods being cooked up with this name.
This is a name that allows customers to feel special.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great kitchen 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.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful kitchen businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Milktooth is a name that leaves customers wondering what to expect. While some choose to go with more obvious names, others prefer to make their mark with a name that is completely unique.
Bertha’s Kitchen is a name that may appear to be very basic, but the story runs more deeply than you might expect. It was selected as a dedication to the mother of the three sisters who started this business together.
Xi’an Famous Foods isn’t afraid to make the claim to be the best. Clearly, the claim to fame works for this restaurant, but you’ll need to be certain that your kitchen can do the same if you decide to make such a claim yourself.
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.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused kitchen terms like cook, bake or referring to the type of food they specialize in. 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 kitchen business named “Bertha’s Kitchen”.
At first glance, this name doesn’t seem that deep. However, when you learn that the restaurant is named for the mother of the owners, you’ll see that there is a lot more to this business than making money.
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 (Kitchen Captivation, Delish Kitchen
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Flambe Kitchen – Flambe refers to a certain method of cooking)
- 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 kitchen business names could be:
- Tsuruno Kitchen
- Nadara Kitchen
- Yudene Kitchen

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 Dandy Kitchen 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 DandyyKitchen, Danditchen or DanndyKitch.
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.
