Back in the 1980's I started a scratch made sandwich and french bread pizza place. Since it was take out only w/ delivery, I named it "Take Home Eatery" some people shortened it to THE Sub Shoppe. The name reflects you as a cook/chef and your design of a business. So choose a name that reflect who you are and the product you want to be known for

I'm a chemist so Subatomic excites me. Most people will probably be turned off by it. Maybe Substantial or Subconcious? I also like Torpedo, I feel that that gives a unique title that can theme a restaurant and spread by word of mouth easily. Just no buoys hanging around or anything!

I like this, but since the concept uses delicious baguette what about shortening to, The Crust, simple and could be very shareable.

i was actually thinking to put the name as S.U.B. and write under that "submarine ultimate baguette". but i m trying to choose something which is memorable and easy to say and remind. cuz hopefully if it goes good i would be able to  franchise it.

Where is this going to happen? What are the demographics of the location? Who is your clientele? Price point? Lunch only?
Do you have graphics already planned? What is the overall concept/ look? Gourmet sandwiches like Pret a Manger or bang 'em out typical American submarine sandwiches like Blimpies ? You can still use meatloaf and mortadella/ cold cuts and make it gourmet depending on the sides, drinks, condiments, cheeses, and spreads.

Put it down to my nationality.

 

and anything with the word 'sub' in it brings up a mental picture of either a deadly, undersea ship OR sub (ie under as in under-par).  Blame it on me being a Scot!

i m planning to do this in australia. i m planning to start from a shopping center to get people familiar with the sub i m planing to make. this is going to be a bit different cuz i m going to make things similar to mortadelas but different flavors. and its all ganna be gourmet subs. mainly cold cuts. and hopefully if i could interest people with the concept, i ll open more shops and do a franchise. 

 

i think is the best to start with cheap prices for the first year to tempt people to buy the subs. i think you cant go wrong with cheap, good and fast food.

Apologies. I thought you were in America. The names I referenced are American chains.
