Okay. My husband has been urging me to set up a home business for my cakes and cookies but I have totally just procrastinated and probably more so didn't do it out of fear. Anyway, my church asked me to do a cake for our Grand Affair, topsy turvey to feed 250. After much thought I decided to decline since I wasn't 'legit' even though they didn't care about that aspect. However, it was just the thing I needed to get me going on the home business part.
So, now the big question.....what name???
I had been calling myself "AlyCakes and More" but I have kind of fallen out of favor with it (my husband didn't really like it either).
What do you all think of the following name:
The Confection Connection
Please be honest and I'm certainly open to suggestions.
I'm pretty sure that one has been taken (although it IS very catchy). Tell is a little more about yourself, your location, your interests...whatever you don't mind telling. I played around for several months and couldn't come up with a name, then one day my mom suggested using the road we live on in the name. I've lived on/around the Three Forks Road area all my life and it never occured to me to use it in my business name until my mom suggested it. One day when I design a logo, it will have three forks somewhere on it. Lots of possibilities!
I did see that same name for a business in IL but I figured it was far enough away
I live in Loveland, Ohio (just north of Cincinnati), I am married and have 2 young girls. I LOVE sports (swam in college at Syracuse), exercising, photography, playing, baking of course.
I work full-time in the financial industry and started the whole cake and cookie thing as a hobby after my oldest daughter's first birthday but it has caught on a bit through word of mouth.
I have always loved to bake, wish I could say the same about cooking.
I want the name to be catchy, but not really hokie.
I don't really want it to have "cake" in the name since I also do cookies and some candies.
I didn't want my name in it as no one ever spells it correctly.
My street name is Old Farm Drive but I can't see that in the name at all
Being from Loveland, that makes it easy to use the name of your town...What about "Loveland Sweets" or something simple like that?
Ooh!!! I like "Loveland Sweets"!! One vote from me...Good luck deciding.
Loveland Confections (not sure why I love the word confections)
Loveland's nickname is the Sweetheart of Ohio so....
I like both !!!!
See now, Loveland just gets my wheels turning too. Since you are operation a home based business, how about:
Loveland Villa Confections
Loveland Cottage Desserts
Loveland Manor Sweets
Old Farm Specialty Shoppe <-- Had to throw that one in there since you didn't want to use your street name.
...or any combination of those? Just throwing some thoughts out there.
Hmmm.. I like Sweetheart Confections! It's kind of hard to choose though.. there were such good suggestions. Goodluck!
Sweetheart Confections is kinda cute!
So Diesel, did you decide on a name?
