Baking Up the Perfect Name
If choosing a name for your bakery was as easy as baking a cake, then you would be in business (literally)!
While delectable desserts and other baked goods are key for a successful bakery, it is nearly as important to pick a good name. The name is a way for customers to remember you, and if you choose well, you're on your way to developing a successful brand.

150 More Business Name Ideas
Bakery Name Brainstorming
- Less is more: When it comes to bakery names, the shorter you keep it, the more likely your customers and passers-by will remember it for future business.
- Keep it simple: Try to avoid names that are difficult for the average Joe to pronounce or spell. You want them to be able to remember you exist, and if your name is too confusing, it won't stick in their minds.
- Use your food: Find inspiration in your signature treats and go from there, e.g. Sweetie Pies, The Sugar Cookie, or Smart Tarts.
- Use your bakery equipment: Names like the Rolling Pin, Sugar Sifters, and the Cookie Sheet are especially retro-feeling and instantly theme your entire shop!
- Use your name: You might get lucky and find a baked good that rhymes! If you've ever pictured your name in lights, this is your chance!
- Use adjectives: This is especially necessary if you are using food in your business name. Adding an adjective in the name can make all the difference!
- Use alliteration: This is where you use the same letter or sound in a few consecutive words and it’s very catchy: In the Crispy Crunchy Croissant, note the repetition of “cr” in all three words.
- Use a theme: If your bakery will have a theme, try incorporating it into the name. (If you specialize in wedding cakes, Swedish baking, cupcakes, or unusual spices, choose a name to reflect this fact.)

Plan a Bakery-Naming Party
Choosing a business name is no piece of cake, so getting help from others is always a great idea!
If you are having a tough time choosing a name, try hosting a bakery-naming party! This is a fun way to enlist everyone's help. Invite a few friends and family over for some pastries and tea and see what ideas they can come up with. Make sure to invite friends and family and have them bring their children, too. Kids can be very clever and they're always up for milk and cookies!
So get those baking mitts out, show off those impeccable baking skills, and whip up some tasty treats to get those creative juices flowing!
Making Your Final Decision
When it comes time to make a firm decision, choose wisely. Your bakery's name is the first thing a customer notices, and hopefully something they'll remember, whether they liked it or not.
If you find yourself stuck between a couple options, take a vote or consider which name would look best for your bakery logo and signage. With all of those sweets, you’re sure to find inspiration somewhere!

Questions & Answers
Question: Do bakeries deliver their baked goods?
Answer: There are a few ways to answer this question. First, there are business-to-business transactions and then there are business-to-consumer transactions.
Many bakeries will do business-to-business deliveries. This would include a bakery dropping off pastries and bread to a store to resell, or to a hotel that doesn't bake their own goods. This is very common.
For business-to-consumer, most bakeries will still do it, but only on larger types of orders. An example of this is a wedding cake or a large order of pastries and bread for parties or something of that variety. Most business-to-consumer transactions are large orders that are akin to business-to-business orders.
If your question really meant just any order like if I wanted to buy a single croissant, then no, I don't know of any bakeries that are willing to do that.
If you were wondering if the bakeries themselves physically handle the delivery, or do they let another company do the delivery for them. For that, the answer is: it depends. I've seen numerous vans that belonged to individual bakeries doing the deliveries, but I've also known a diner owner who received deliveries from a bakery who used a delivery service. So, there are a bunch of ways to handle it, and it would come down to your business' needs and costs.
