What's the atmosphere? Sophisticated, informal, "candy shoppe", continental...

Who's the customer? Kids, chocoholics, savorers of fine chocolate...

What's the price range?

I'm just an amateur who loves chocolate and is inexperienced in business, but these seem like logical questions.

Hi

How about - sweet art?:bounce:

I think for anything upscale, it's always nice when the business bears the name of the owner.

Unless his name is, well, I'll leave that to your imagination....

I am always partial to the name "La Dolce Vita". I know, it is not particularly original, but I like just the same.

Choco La-ti-da

Choco Loco

Cocoa Mozart

Cocao Dinero or Azteca Dinero (because the Aztecs used cocao beans as money)

I'm sure it's been done, but how about Chocolat (it would pull in the movie fans)

Dear Abby has a suggestion or two:

La Boîte de Chocolat

Le Chocolat Rêve

La Maison de Chocolat

Le Chapeau de Chocolat


Dear Abby thinks that Chocolat and Français go naturally together.

I am with "Choco Loco"

Great idea!!!

This is good even for a nick name in a culinary forum... ( BUT what could be the avatar??Hmmmm)

Chocolate is a native american thing! Don't use a French title , I mean it's not a perfumerie after all :)

How about

"Chocolate Therapy"

or

"The Chocolate Apothecary"


Chocolate was after all considered to be a cure-all until the beginning of the 20th century..

:D

Well I'm sitting here trying to think of a great name and my cat walks over so I think "hey! The Chocolate Kitty!" but now I realize that doesn't sound like a place selling chocolate (hey, what do you want...I named my shop "Madame Butterfly Cakes" and have already gotten a call asking to speak to the madame) so here are a few names my boyfriend pitched:



Dark Pleasures, A chocolate shop
The Forbidden Bean
Chocolate Everything
The Shop on Chocolate Street
Chocolate Chow
Chock Full of Chocolate

Ok, this may make not a lot of sense for a chocolate shop in Delaware, but keep in mind, I'm on the west coast. THE CHOCOLATE RAINFOREST.

How about something without "choco" in the name? Bliss. Bliss Fix. Something that comes to mind when one thinks of chocolate.

There is a Bittersweet already. It's in Chicago & is actually pretty well known.

What about Ganache?
The Cocoa Nut?

"Cocoa In Fusion"
"Chocolates Anonymous"
"Luscious Serenity"
"Cocoa Dream Escape"

Or my personal favourite

"Endorphin Deliverance"

One day ill be a marketing of advertising executive. Haha. Rubbish them but they would work.

Awful old thread... you gotta watch the post dates around here.

Endorphin Dlieverance sounds like a surgical technique to me. rolleyes.gif

 

**Idly wonders what it ever DID get named.**

What does La ti da mean?

I think it's a play on La di da (or lah di dah) which means snobby (e.g. "He thinks he's so superior with his lah di dah mannerisms) but "choco la ti da", is a play on chocolata i think

 

what about "Xocoatl" which i believe is the aztec name for it. 

or "not by bread alone"

"the chocophiliac"  or "chocolatarian" or "chocolatist"

 

or if it's really fancy and expensive, take a name from sandra boynton's book Chocolate, the consuming passion:  "un bras et un jambe"smile.gif
