Tips for naming a Cafe Business

Imagine the following scenario – you choose a splendid, central location for your new café. You buy a state of the art coffee machine, the finest Arabica (ethically-sourced and fair-trade, of course) and the most comfortable furniture. Still, something is missing and your business doesn’t take off.

There’s a simple reason why – branding. Cafés and coffee shops abound. To ensure your success in the field, you have to pick standout brand elements. A good café name is your starting point. But what does it take to make the title meaningful and memorable? Check out the following suggestions for café business name selection:

  1. Don’t make it pretentious: some cafés and coffee shops already have a reputation for being way too pretentious without offering anything to justify their reputation. You don’t want a name that sounds stuck up or elitist. Instead, focus on the experience, the warmth and the cozy atmosphere that people will get to enjoy by coming to your café.
  2. Know how young your crowd is: will you be trying to attract a young and hip crowd or a more mature clientele? Depending on the answer, you will have to choose one of two name selection approaches. Young people enjoy more frivolous and quirky business names. If you are attempting to attract mature clients, choose a title that sounds a bit more sophisticated and focused on quality.
  3. Be a part of the community: cafés often become a focal point in a local community. A good name for such a business can focus on being such an establishment. Let people know your café is a meeting point, let them know your business is actively working towards making the community better. There are always ways to carry local vibes and the spirit of the neighborhood in the selection of the right name.

Needless to say, you can choose many other approaches for café name selection. What matters the most is choosing a title that speaks to you and that is indicative of your values and beliefs. Authenticity will pay off, otherwise, your name could ring hollow.

Cafe 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!

Puroast Coffee

while puns and word combos are generally overdone and difficult to nail, this example offers a refreshing example of using the techniques correctly. The combination between “pure” and “roast” works really well in the context of quality coffee.

SpecialTEA Lounge

another example that employs a similar technique. Still, the combination results in such a fun name that it definitely deserves inclusion in the list.

The Ritual Coffee N Pie

for many people, drinking coffee is a beloved daily ritual. This name is indicative of an experience that coffee lovers want and seek out actively. Letting people know that the café offers sweet treats results in bonus points for the title.

Kaldi’s Social House

the name provides an excellent illustration of our final café naming tip. It suggests the place is a social spot for people to meet in the neighborhood and enjoy a warm beverage while having a conversation.
