In the not-too-distant past, coffee was something that you made at home, or perhaps something that you drank at a diner. With the advent of Starbucks and other massive coffee chains, however, coffee shops have become a staple in the U.S. In fact, experts predict that there will be at least 40,900 coffee shops in the country by the end of 2025.

Americans love java – and they especially love the coffee shop experience. If you operate a coffee shop (or dream of opening up a shop of your own), then you may be curious how you can draw in more customers. One method that can help is choosing a truly creative name for your coffee shop to make customers smile, laugh, or just remember your business when they think about getting a coffee.

Budget Branders partners with restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and breweries throughout the United States to help make their businesses more successful. We offer a full line of coffee cups, coffee sleeves, paper bags, and bowls that can be custom printed with your business’ name, logo, and/or slogan. Once you have decided on a name for your coffee shop, give us a call for a free quote on the disposable products that you use most.

How to Choose a Name for Your Coffee Shop

When you’re in the planning stages of starting your own business, you might not put too much thought into the name of your coffee shop. After all, there are tons of important details to figure out first, like getting funding, writing a business plan, and figuring out legal requirements like food handlers’ licenses.

Yet having a great name is one of the most fundamental aspects of running a profitable business – particularly in the food and hospitality industry, where competition is fierce and far too many businesses fail. So how can you pick a name that truly reflects your business…and helps you market yourself more effectively?

There are a few steps that every entrepreneur should follow when choosing a name for their business. The first and perhaps most important thing is to think about your mission. When you consider why you do what you do – and what you are hoping to accomplish – it can really help you pick a name that is memorable and unique.

You should also focus on keeping it simple. Our attention spans are shorter than ever, and no one is going to remember a long and overly complicated restaurant name. Try to keep the name to just a few words and make sure that it isn’t too hard to say or spell.

Finally, make sure that you do your research before committing to any name. Not only do you want to avoid confusion, you also don’t want to use anyone else’s intellectual property.

Let Budget Branders Help Your Coffee Shop Thrive

When you run a coffee shop, you go through a lot of disposable products – especially coffee cups and coffee sleeves. Branding those products is a simple, effective way to market your business. When your customers grab a cup of coffee to go, they’ll be a walking advertisement for your shop as they go to work, stop at a store, or simply go about their day.

At Budget Branders, we work hard to help small to medium sized businesses get the products that they need to succeed. We offer high quality custom-printed disposable products at prices and in quantities that make sense for independently-owned coffee shops. We’ll even store your excess products at our facilities until you’re ready for them!

Custom-branded products can take your marketing efforts to the next level. If you want to learn more, fill out a contact form or send us a quote request for one or more of our products. Have questions? Simply press the live chat button to get started.
