New Bakery needs a name - Page 3

post #61 of 91
Thread Starter 
Thanks old and wise I am sending you my business plan we revised the numbers (a sba advisor told me to put in new prices and that shot everything up) to reflect used equipment. I also refinanced my house so that I would have equity in the business. I then took the plan to 2 new banks in the area today. I may have to start alot smaller than I originally thought but judging by the response I have been getting from the community I will be able to purchase more equipment very fast. When I started this plan out I was told over and over that there is plenty of money out there for women and minorities to start your own business. I have found out that this is more of a legend than truth. While there may be a few grants out there the hoops and red tape you have to go through to get them makes them very unattractive. You would have to work two or more years to get some of these grants. Believe it or not the government does not hand out free money. This was quite the eye opener for me as I had always thought all of this was available to me and all I had to do was show what I wanted to do with the money. The first bank I went to today seemed very excited to have me come in and submit my business plan so I am going to keep trying. Thanks for all the encouragement

Dear SnakeLady1:

As Old&Wise mentioned above, the first rejection is just the beggining!

Ask your SBA office for a list of local banks that provide the type of financing thet you are seeking.

Good Luck!

papa,
are you the one with the panini license plate. If so I would like to purchase those when you are done if your willing.
Snakelady, I read through your plan and will email Sun. night if that ok. Don't give up on the grant thing, one of the slowest processes can be SBA, I'm really not a bigt supporter of them.

How about "A Bite of Everything Bake Shop"

Your suggestion sounds good, Stephm, but the thread is eight years old. ;) Still, people use our archives to trawl for good ideas, as you did.

When you say that, they may have found part of the "Underground Railroad", What exactly do you mean? The "Underground Railroad", wasn't exactly an "underground" kinda thing... it was basically just a networking kinda ordeal... There was what the called meeting places, safehouses.. and things like that... it was never really an underground railroad... it was just like a group of people that helped the slaves and etc escape from the south and canada to the  north... I guess i'm not understanding what you are saying. Please help me to understand.

MotandLouBakery,

 

That is a pretty good definition of an "underground railroad", no trains necessarily involved and nothing really underground, maybe "invisible" is a better description?

 

Just as a "black market" is not really black, an "underground railroad" is neither necessarily underground nor a railroad.

im doing a project in school and i needed a name for my pretend bakery. and i used the "Half Baked" lol so thank you

Hello

 

We had the same issue when we opened our bakery some 30 years ago, now sold to a Canadian conglomerate. Times have changed and so have customers. Since you know your town and demographics better than me, I would suggest that what ever you name it,  ends with "Baking Company" More up to date  than Bakery.  The name should tell potential customers who you are, and entice them to stop in. It was a wonderful time for us in which we still are involved with our new internet venture. Much success.

Be glad you don't live in Quebec, it would have to be a French name or the language police would be after you, that is just the way it is here.
