Tips for naming a BBQ & Grill Restaurant Business

Can a brand name sound yummy? Absolutely! As humans, we’re endowed with powerful imagination. A single word or a phrase can provoke associations and mouth-watering visualizations.

That’s precisely what you want to accomplish when choosing a name for your BBQ or grill restaurant. With so many good approaches towards naming, we have summarized the possibilities in a couple of simple tips.

  1. Words that engage taste and smell: the taste, the smell, the texture of freshly grilled food… This is what clients should be imagining once they hear your name. Think of some adjectives that can provoke such a sensory experience – spicy, smoky, charred, tender, Korean, family-style, fresh, etc.
  2. A focus on quality: when looking for BBQ restaurants, most people imagine fresh meat that’s been marinated in delicious herbs and spice rubs. Make your name indicative of freshness and quality. If you use pasture-raised and grass-fed meat, for example, that could be one of your most powerful selling points.
  3. Have a bit of fun: barbeque and grill restaurants offer a casual, fun experience for the entire family. They aren’t the same as sophisticated, black tie restaurants. As a result, the name can be a bit more casual and fun. It can put emphasis on the family experience or it can feature a pun. Just don’t overdo it and pick a pun or a phrase that hasn’t been turned into a cliché already.

Just ask yourself an important question – who are you as a business owner? What do you stand for? Having a reminder of your biggest strengths and the passion you’ve put in your restaurant will give you lots of creative name ideas and directions to explore.

BBQ & Grill Restaurant Business name analysis

If you’re still stuck on creating some name ideas, here’s a breakdown of some of the top brands and businesses in the industry. Here I’ll explain why the name works for that company, and how the name appeals to customers. What’s more, a few more team members from BizNameWiz have added their name ideas below aswell!

Pig Heaven

this is a pretty risky approach towards name selection as some may find it distasteful. For other people, however, the name is going to be a lot of fun. No matter what the reaction, the restaurant’s name doesn’t leave people indifferent. And that is precisely how a business can generate some buzz.

Honey Brown BBQ

this name makes use of our first selection tip. It engages the sense of smell and it creates a powerful visual. Everyone can imagine the deliciously golden, honey-coated BBQ crust and grill marks. The name provokes a craving and a desire to go inside and taste the food.

Holy Cow BBQ

again, a humorous approach is employed here that will potentially appeal to the lovers of grilled meat, especially those who appreciate their beef.

Backyard Smokespot BBQ

this restaurant is attempting to appeal to clients in a different way from the second entry in the list. It creates a vision of a family backyard BBQ – something everyone can envision. The name is warm, inviting and friendly. All of these characteristics go really well with the BBQ and grill experience.
