Our kids helped us come up with the name, and our daughter drew the logo. She is a great artist, and has even come up with an updated logo picture. 

I do appreciate any and all feedback that you or anyone else may have.

Have a great day!

Our Company name is Lancaster downtown deli. I used s.e.o words to create the name. I designed the logo using an on-line logo design site. Chose the colors using an on-line site that shows how people respond to certain colors.

We came up with the name of our business out of a desire to be inclusive of the three communities that make up our metro area.

Hello @Olive_ !

 

When I was researching my coffee shop idea, the industry was right in the heart of the “third space” idea—where people are looking for a spot to gather that wasn’t home or the office. With that in mind, I wanted to create a space that was warm, relaxing, and somewhere you could go to forget about the real world for a while. R&R came naturally after that.

A few years after opening, my roasted coffee business was gaining quite a few wholesale accounts. I decided that I needed to spin it off into its own entity. This name was a little harder to come by. 
One evening, I was working on some paperwork in our dining area while a big thunderstorm was overhead. As it rained, the sun set below the level of the clouds, casting a vibrant golden color over everything in the store. I stepped outside and saw the biggest tree on our property bathed in the same golden glow. Golden Pine Roasters was created. 🙂

Would I change them? Probably not. We’ve been around long enough to where everyone knows us as “the R&R” so any change would mess with some minds. The roasterie is starting to really stand on its own now too, so I don’t want to change things there either.

I really dig the meaning behind both names, reading through these is a fun window into your lives and businesses... A deeper dive than we might usually get.

 

@ryanwanner - When I look at the golden pine logo and read the story, I swear I can smell coffee.

That looks like a cozy place to curl up with a hot coffee or hot chocolate and nap (I mean read a book)! Nice place!

Names and logos:  The Riverview is named after the building it is located in.  This was my first ever designed logo and I just wanted something clean that incorporated blue and green for river and trees.  Order Up Café was a bazillion different names till we landed on the name and then designed the logo to emphasize the up and the city of Knoxville with the iconic skyline of the sun sphere.  Tombras Café was a specific operation for an advertising agency and represents  very clean and modern.

 

The last one city county cafe was to represent an abstract sandwich but still clean lines.  The key to all my names and logos were easy to remember and use web domain names.  What good is a great name if you can't get a great web domain?

I once worked for a start-up company named, The Corporation. Stupidest company name I've ever heard of...  NOBODY knew what we did. Was it a security firm? A software company? A company run by the...well, you know. BTW, it was a 2nd rate software company that was doomed from the start. From then on, I knew if I ever had to choose a company name, the name would say it all...

 

Our biz name IV Airport Shuttle, represents exactly the area we cover (IV for Illinois Valley in North Central Illinois) and exactly what we do (Airport Shuttles to O'Hare, Midway and four other smaller regional airports). We toyed with names that were cute, catchy, funny, etc., but all were forgettable, we thought. The name has worked tremendously well for us. *Eight years later, we're doing great!

Love it! A straightforward name like this is an advertisement for your own business, no need to add frills to complicate things. Fun names aren't the end of the world, but I would imagine you've gained hundreds of customers just by seeing your cars with the exact identifier of what you do out on the road.

I have to say, The Corporation sounds it's either an intense suspense film about an actual corporation, or a 90s ska band.

The wife and I were in Southern France and my mother in law's hairdresser, an Italian gentleman, his name was Massimo with 2 s's.  Checking on sunbiz.org it was taken so I changed it to 1 s.  I liked the name.  And that as they say is that.

Absolutely epic story, thank you for sharing @AntixX . I love that it came from your wrestling name... I'm more of an artist than a wrestler so I like the pivot 🙂
