Picking A Name For Your New Restaurant Business

Naming their new restaurant business is something most owners spend a lot of time thinking about, dreaming about and testing on friends, family and strangers. In reality, the name of the restaurant isn’t really that critical to its success, but because that is the identifier in the new owner’s mind, they give it undue importance and significance.

There aren’t really any hard and fast rules about picking a good name in terms of what name will do better than others, but there are some things to keep in mind generally about selecting a name that will be more user friendly. Don’t pick a name that is hard to spell or hard to say. Even if you are using a name for a restaurant business that may serve French food, try to not to pick a difficult to spell or pronounce French name for the restaurant. Don’t pick a name that will be easily confused with another restaurant. Aside from potential trademark issues, you just don’t want to accidentally send business to the wrong restaurant.

Don’t pick a name that might have a second meaning or that could be misconstrued as negative, or worse as bigoted or insensitive. Don’t pick a name that is too “adult” or risqué, as just the insinuation may turn off a lot of people even if the inside may be more family friendly. Don’t pick a name that doesn’t fit with what you are selling. If you call it a diner, some people are going to expect meatloaf on the menu. If you don’t plan to serve meatloaf, make sure the name fits. Café and bistro are two more examples of restaurant names that will imply a certain kind of menu.

Don’t worry about picking a name that starts with an early letter of the alphabet. Although people used to suggest that as a way to get into the front section of the yellow pages listings, the yellow pages are on the way out, and this isn’t the way most people choose a restaurant anyway. Do try and pick a name for which you can register the accompanying domain name ( that ends in .com. If you can’t get the exact name, check the website for the name you have picked to make sure it doesn’t link to something unsavory, or worse, to local competition. You can check domain name availability at

Overall, just pick something you like that is easy to spell and say and has a domain name you can get, or something close. But don’t spend too much time worrying about the name, as it is one of the least important factor in your restaurant’s overall success.

How a Restaurant Can Use File Sharing

A restaurant can make good use of a file sharing system. If a chef loves anything, it is cooking, this means that they think about cooking wherever they go. They come up with new recipes on the fly and many of these recipes are lost to the ether or they are contained on lose scraps of paper that tend to get lost. Therefore, a lot of genius is lost to disorganization. Even if a chef uses a smart phone to capture their ideas, those ideas are just as likely to be erased on accident due to an accident with the phone.

One of the hardest things for a restaurateur to do is share their new recipes with their employees. However, a file sharing system can make this very quick because the restaurateur can easily share their recipes with their employees through file sharing system. Although restaurateur has to do is upload the file to the file sharing system and have his or her employees look at the new recipe online. They can even print out the recipe to find out what ingredients they will need it what cooking techniques they will have to use. This speeds up the process of training new employees and existing employees to new recipes that are to be used in the restaurant.

Another thing that a restaurant could use a file sharing system for is to get feedback from customers about how the meal was in their opinion. Any good business owner looks for feedback on how their restaurant is doing. This is mostly because most restaurateurs do not work in the restaurant itself. Most restaurateurs actually work outside the restaurant and make sure that the bills are paid. They do not sit in the restaurant and make sure the meals go out properly. They have an executive chef to do this. Therefore, it restaurant may not always know if the food and the service is up to their standards.

Allowing the customers to send the restaurateur notes within the system will allow the restaurateur to figure out if the restaurant is working at maximal capacity. This will help keep the restaurant operating at a high level and will keep the critics giving good marks to the restaurant. This is the hope of every restaurant and any system that can help a restaurant get good ratings with critics is money well spent.

Finally, the file sharing system allows the restaurateur or the executive chef to take the menu list anywhere they go. This allows the executive chef for the restaurateur to make changes to the menu as they see fit. If they have an idea in a grocery store or while they are out getting things for the restaurant. A hallmark of any restaurant is the food that they create in the restaurant. Therefore, any changes that can happen to the food are usually a good thing. If a restaurant does anything, it is sell food. Therefore, any upgrades in the food quality will ultimately help the restaurant make more money.

In conclusion, a file sharing system could be what a restaurant needs to get to the next level today. Any restaurateur looking into a file sharing system is a smart person. There are many benefits to having a file sharing system that most restaurants do not have in their system. These benefits will allow the restaurant to dominate their niche in the city. Therefore, a restaurant should get a file sharing system as soon as possible.
