How To Come Up With Your Own Business Name

personal chef

Is this a career you want to persue?

If none of these personal chef company name ideas speak to you, then it is easy enough to come up with your own. There are lots of possibilities out there to represent your brand and vision. When coming up with your name, remember to think about your short term and long term vision. Brainstorm as many words as possible related to you, your company, and what service you plan to offer. Think of things like:

  • The kind of food you will cook 
  • Your location 
  • Your clientele 
  • What type of service you will offer 
  • Your clients’ goals 
  • Any unique selling points 

The more words you brainstorm in this step, the more you will have to work with when coming up with your personal chef company name ideas. Once you have brainstormed as much as you can, start putting together ideas, either into full names or interesting combinations. List as many as you can as the more you do this, the better names you will come up with.

Make sure you put this list aside overnight and come back to it tomorrow. This will give your subconscious time to think over all the brainstorming and your thoughts about your brand and how you want to portray your business. Fresh eyes will also make a world of difference when you start picking the names that speak to you the most. 

Once you have a few top ideas, no more than ten, run them by family and friends. Look for friends who are creative or fit your target market to let you know what they think of the names. They will be able to cross off names that don’t work, or maybe give you new ideas you have not thought of. The most important thing is that you find a name that works for you, though, after all, you will be the one seeing it every day.
