How to Name a Grocery Store?

If you are going to open a grocery store, you need a really catchy name for your shop. The examples of the existing brands and their classification may help you make a right choice with no efforts at all. In this article, you will find the careful description of the main strategies of naming and also numerous examples of names of already existing grocery shops and supermarkets. 

How to Name a Grocery Store?

The names of food stores are not easy to classify, mainly because unlike the other, highly specialized shops brands, they are very diverse, and the choice is limited only to the business owners’ imagination. However, there are certain groups of names and the relevant strategies of naming that are used most.

  1. Names to some extent related to food and eating. Such brands may be associated with healthy natural food due to the inclusion of the words ‘natural’, ‘organic’, ‘farm’, ‘fresh’, ‘health’, include the names of various groceries, for instance, lettuce, radish, tomato, button, meat, etc. They may also include any other words related to cooking, eating, kitchen, for example, ‘cook’, ‘gourmet’, ‘yummy’ and so forth. The main advantage of this category of names is that they are diverse and creative and at the same time thematic, so your potential customers will not confuse your grocery store with any other shop.
  2. Names associated with a particular national cuisine. The inclusion of foreign words or such words as ‘Italian’, ‘Spanish’, ‘Russian’, ‘Bangkok’, ‘Indian’, etc, in the brand allows causing direct associations with a particular national cuisine or making the name sound original. In other words, if you are opening a store with Indian groceries, New Foods of India will be a great, thematic brand. If you are going to sell Japanese groceries, Sakura will be a nice choice.
  3. Names that include the keyword ‘food’ or ‘deli’. Adding this keyword to the brand is the easiest way to make it thematic. You can combine it with any other words, for instance, the name of the owner, certain location, various adjectives, and nouns, creating simple short brands or even the phrases, for example, Food Basket, Balducci’s Food Lover’s Market, The Food Emporium, Friendly Food.
  4. Names that include the keyword ‘market’ or ‘mart’. This group differs from the previous one only in the keyword.
  5. Names that include the keyword ‘grocery’. This group is similar to two previous ones. Such brands are also thematic and can be creative due to the adding of the unrelated words and word combinations.
  6. Other original names. These names do not have to be thematic – they may be funny, catchy or creative, and that is their advantage. Rhymes, wordplays, geographic names – everything is allowed, so do not rein in your imagination.
