How to Choose the Right Restaurant Name Before You Open Your Doors

Last updated 5 years ago

While your restaurant's menu may be the key to inspiring diners to return again in the future, one of the most important elements that will work to attract them in the first place is a catchy yet sophisticated name. Before purchasing basics such as kitchen equipment and chic dining tables for the interior of your restaurant, it's essential that you give the establishment a name that adequately reflects its spirit. Here is a guide to choosing the right restaurant name before you open your doors:

Make It Personal

If you're at a dead end when it comes to thinking of the perfect name for your restaurant, draw inspiration from your personal life. Many restaurants are named after beloved family members of chefs, such as parents or significant others. Perhaps your restaurant pays homage to the years of cooking lessons you took in France or the flavors of the Southwest. Take these personal experiences and use them as sources of inspiration.

Make It Memorable

Your new restaurant name should also be memorable. While you might think that using a pun or an exotic-sounding foreign word is a good strategy for enticing future diners, it could actually cause them to frequently forget the name of the restaurant.

Make It Unique

Although you may have your heart set on a certain name, there is always the possibility that a restaurant by the same name already exists in your area. This could pose a major problem for business and cause confusion for your diners.
