Restaurant/Cafe Name

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am currently playing around with a restaurant concept and messing with the numbers to see if it is a viable business.  I currently have a "working" name although I am not sure that I am completely sold on the name.  The concept is a soup and pie shop.  I will be offering a limited number of sandwiches and salads (mostly pre made earlier that day to faciliate very quick service although we will be happy to make them to order if someone wants it customized).  We will also be offering a quiche of the day and a savory, individual pie of the day as well as a limited range of coffee drinks (thinking of making all syrups from scratch instead of buying Torino).  I am currently calling the place "Gigi's Soup and Pie Shop."  Yes, original, I know.  Gigi (Genevieve) is the name of my daughter.  I like the name, but it doesn't "WOW" me so I thought I would turn to the community to see if you all can come up with something more catchy.  Thanks for the help.

 

Added details:  I am in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, at the foot of Lake Winnebago.

"GIGI"S GREAT SOUPS AND TASTY PIES"

Simply "Gigi's" sounds better to me. But maybe that will give people the impression that it's a diner? "Genevieve's", or some variation of that sounds better.  "Gigi's soup and pie shop" sounds a bit boring to me.  Also, naming something with soups and pies and having that concept will tie you down to that product pretty well. What if your sandwiches, salads and quiches become the popular items? What if you want to expand the brand after your sandwiches, or possibly burgers and pizzas ( just for example) take off? Then you'd have a name that would seem like a liability to you to attract new customers.

 

I'd seriously look into the "Genevieve's" name.

Thanks for the input so far.  Again, I am not necessarily tied to Gigi's or Genevieve although it would be nice to keep it in the name.  It's not a "must have."  Any other suggestions from anyone??

Drop the "shop": Gigi's Soups and Pies.
