How To Give Your Candy Store A Name?

Finding the perfect business name when starting your own candy store isn’t easy, especially if one doesn’t speak to you right away.

It’s also easy to get stuck and let this hold you back from getting started with your new candy store. With so much on your plate, you can’t afford to sit around and wait for inspiration.

And if you’re struggling to come up with a name, you’re in the right place.

In this article, I cover essential tips to consider when choosing a name and how to make sure the name you chose is available for use today.

Tips for Choosing and Finalizing the Best Candy Store Name

Before we dive in, it’s critical to understand the basics of your business. Start by answering these questions:

  • Who is your ideal audience?
  • What makes you different from the other candy shops out there?

Once you clarify the specific niche of your shop, it’s easier to choose a name.

So take some time to clarify who your market is and what separates you from the crowd. Then, go through these tips to help you get those creative juices flowing.

1. Consider the types of candy you want to sell

Make a list of every type of candy you plan to sell in your new shop. Is there a type you’re particularly excited about? Or maybe there’s something you want to specialize in.

Take some time to brainstorm ideas based on the particular type of candy you plan to sell, such as homemade taffy, gourmet pretzels, or fine chocolates, you plan to sell and your target market.

Keep in mind that your business name shouldn’t limit you if you decide to venture into other ideas or types of candy down the road.

2. Avoid names that are hard to spell or pronounce

47% of smartphone users use voice search to find business information online. And 44% use it to research products and services. Unusual words aren’t easy for voice assistants, like Siri or Alexa.

And voice searchers may not be able to find you if you use words that are hard to spell, hear, or pronounce.

Furthermore, text-based searches may require proper spelling to see the expected results. Improper spelling or difficult words could hinder how often your business shows up.  

So it’s important to choose a business name that’s easy to spell, pronounce, and remember in order for your potential customers to find you. When choosing a name for your candy shop, it’s best to avoid:

  • Intentional misspellings
  • Commonly misspelled words
  • Using numbers in place of letters

3. Avoid trendy topics and buzzwords

Trends come and go. And they usually don’t stay around for very long.

Because of that, it’s important to avoid picking cool names based on current trends. Doing so could date your business in the future when that trend goes out of style.

Furthermore, try to avoid using buzzwords and industry jargon as well.

4. Consider location-based terms

If your candy shop is specific to a single location (i.e. a region, neighborhood, city, downtown city area, or country), you can consider using location-based terms in your name.

Think about what makes the area you’re in unique and brainstorm a list of potential location-based descriptors you can use.

However, you have to be careful if you go this route. Using a location in your name can be limiting if you plan to expand to new areas down the road.  

5. Will the name look good as a logo?

Another consideration is to consider is the use of your name as a logo. Some names are too long and others may not lend themselves to a good image. Using a catchy logo will help make the name more brandable and look good on company signage, shirts, etc.  

6. Running out of ideas? Go with the owner’s name

If you’re struggling to find a name that fits, using the owner’s name is always an option. This is especially beneficial if the owner is the face and personality of the business.

It’s common for entrepreneurs to rebrand their businesses to match their first and/or last names. And it works well if the owner’s name becomes synonymous with the company itself.

However, there’s a downside to this. If you decide to sell your candy store down the road, you may find it challenging to find a qualified buyer since it includes someone else’s name.
