Candy Shops have been around for centuries, and are one of the most amazing stores you can own. Seeing candy shops on the street corner always takes me back to my misspent childhood, filled with chocolate and sherbet, liquorice bootlaces and sugar-coated cola bottles, and those unforgettable wine gums, soft chewy candies that were meant to taste like a variety of wines and liqueurs. But I digress!

Candy shops generate around $19.6 billion dollars a year in the United States according to industry research firm Grand View Research. And the confectionary industry contributes over $44 billion to the national economy every year.

No other consumer product has the universal appeal of chocolates and candies, according to the National Confectioner’s Association report for 2020. There are still thousands of candy shops across the country, and many still sell those delicious treats we devoured as kids.

And the fact that they sell candy gives rise to a wide range of naming ideas for a sweet shop or candy store. Here is our list of delicious naming ideas for your own candy store, chocolate shop, or sweet shop.

Chocolate Shop Name Ideas

Chocolate muffins!

Chocolate shops are a little more discerning, usually. But branding your chocolate shop does not always mean you have to choose some artsy name for it.

You can still have some fun naming your chocolate shop, and you can even make it a little more “international” by using translations for “chocolate”. In German it is schokolade, in Italian it is cioccolato, in Swahili it is chokoleti, and in Gaelic it is seoclaid.

Or you can go for more traditional styles, for the more discerning clientele. Think about who your main customer base is going before making your final selection.

Candy stores almost always use some form of candy-related naming convention. And what better way to brand your candy shop than to showcase your products in the name?

If funny names are not your thing, you can always go the more traditional route. The great thing about looking for a name for your candy shop is that, when it comes to choices, they are almost as endless as Willy Wonka’s Everlasting Gobstopper.

How to Name an Old-School Candy Store

Choosing the name for your candy store is as important as your window display and the sweet treats you’re selling inside. If you are offering specialty candies or chocolates, then a naming that matches this niche would be more appropriate. If you are a designer chocolate shop, for example, then you would be looking for a more gourmet-sounding name.

Your target market is also an opportunity to decide on the name of your shop. If you are catering to kids, then the name should be appealing to them. Your target market type should be part of the decision in shop naming.

The location of the shop can also be used for naming. If the location is somewhere well known, then you can use it to increase your customer base. Being located in a popular shopping district can help with making your shop more well-known. And it can help people to find you more easily as well.

Using your own name is another popular option for candy shops. And if you can get it to rhyme, then your name will be even more memorable. Names like Candy’s Candies make for memorable names that are owner-dedicated. And any alliteration use, where the words all begin with the same letter, can be a useful way to be remembered.

Keeping it simple is always a good idea. You don’t want to give people a name that is too hard to remember. And while puns can be fun, they are not always appropriate for every market type. It does not have to be complicated to be perfect and effective.
