New Bakery needs a name

post #1 of 91
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of opening a bakery and I am playing around with names for it. I don't want to name it after me or the town or the street. I have been thinking of upper crust or Bakery around the corner....anyone have any clever ideas for a bakery name I will be doing a little of everything so it won't be just a bagel shop or breads or pastries but some of all.....Thanks ;) ;) ;)

...I think golden rain might be ...um.. misinterpreted.. (hence the wink perhaps?) How about plain old La Boulangerie (and give the shop a little Parisian flair)? or La Boulangère?
post #8 of 91
What you insinuate about the name GOLDEN RAIN never, never, NEVER entered my mind. Seriously.

I'm fluent in French.
Boulangere = Baker (no accent on my font)
Boulangerie = Bakery

LOL..Sorry Kokopuffs, I guess my mind was in the gutter! (someone would have thought it eventually, don't you think?) :p ;)

By the way, boulangère is actually the feminine of baker. It traditionally designated the baker's wife.

Anneke, you're right about the spelling of Boulangere vs Boulanger.

Crust and Crumbs.

You might want to check for trademarks though since this is a book title by Peter Reinhart!


P.S.: Does the winner get a prize?

There's a bakery/restaurant in Milwaukee's Old Third Ward called La Boulangerie, Snakelady. Might want to find out if there's a problem with that.

Some more names:

Batter Up
Dough See Dough
Art of the Tart
The Posh Nosh
Rich Dough
Your Just Desserts
Baker Street (providing it's not on Baker Street)

LOL, Anneke. I was waiting for that one to come up. You're very brave. Mezzaluna, you really came up with some lovely names, as have others. I'm glad it's not my decision to choose :)

I can' t think of any names right now, but Upper Crust" has been used several times and so has "The Cakery", "The Neighborhood Bakery", and "Sweet Indulgence", just to name a few.
post #21 of 91
You could go French the Duc of something or Comte this or that is always a popular choice. Or there is always bakery name for different type of bread like La baguette dorée.

If you need inspiration, try looking up in the yellow pages of different cities or countris, just search for bakeries or boulangeries in Frnech.

How about Pan? You could use it to refer to the bread, and it'd also be a nice motif... little mythological figures running about, you know....

I think of the total package....what kinda theme are you wanting to project...atmosphere of the bakery, product list, high end or neighborhood, what kinda town....who do you think your client base is?

Shroomgirl I want to specialize in the high end bakery artisan breads bagels special desserts that aren't available in the area. My customer base will be approxiamately 7000 people out of a 20,000 population. It is located in a small town with only two grocery store bakeries. I already have people asking me to do their wedding cakes and I probably won't get to open until October because I haven't found a contractor who is free until then. I want something small but special intimate even. :eek: :D :eek:

OK....from that I need additional info (high end says something) what is your town's history, are you incorporating anything local....ie Scandanivian breads or Dutch pastries or etc...An artisinal bakery here that does bagels, breads, pastries etc is Companion...modern brown and orange logo with a wavy line underneath.
Earthy breads or fancy pastries or free form pastries or wedding cakes each mean something different to me.
The best presentation carries a small story about your passion or why you started a bakery or why you are in the "special bakery" your in...if your into snakes maybe see about including them in your theme....snake bread....Medusa is alittle scary but there may be a fun reference to snakes or bread snakes.....maybe intertwined in a vine or secretly apart of your logo????or in the design someplace something that makes it yours. This sounds like a really cool project. Good luck.

I am deathly afraid of snakes it is my screen name given to me by my coworkers on evening as we were walking to our cars parked in the woods across the street from the Heidel House Resort as I aproached my car a snake slithered underneath I screamed and ran they all laughed. Since then I was nicknamed snakelady so I kept using it even years after the incident. On a historical note Ripon is known as the birthplace of the Republican party. It is also known as Cookie City USA
because ripongoodcookies are made there. The building I am going to lease has had excavation in the basement because they may have found part of the Underground Railroad there. I want to do free form breads and desserts and also wedding cakes I will have room in the store front to possibly have specialty condiments for sale Would also like to sell chocolates. So far I haven't found an Upper Crust Bakery in Wisconsin( I will keep looking) Did find one in Austin Texas though. If that name falls through I liked Mezzalunas suggestion of Baker Street. :D :D :D

Sounds like fun.
Underground railroad, like during the civil war or like a real train?
value added products....croutons, bread pudding, crostini etc..are a great addition to use product.

Why not use these historical facts as inspiration for a name! It's such an important part of american history, every american knows about the Underground Railroad. You should allude to this in your name!
