4  Tips When Naming Your Chinese Restaurant

1. Consider your offering and your customers:

  • What type of restaurant is it? Fine dining, seafood, vegetarian, etc.
  • What is the atmosphere of your business? Fine dining, family-oriented, take-out, etc.
  • Which neighborhood or district is your cafe located in?
  • What type of customers do you have? Singles, couples, office workers, etc.

2. What are your values and background

Consider your restaurant’s mission statement and values first. What story do you tell your customers with your name?

Effective marketing is based on articulating and extending a harmonious concept from the inside out. Communicating what defines your business is how to engage potential customers because it puts your story in context.

3. The best restaurant names often have a good story behind their name

See if you can find some interesting story or fact about the history of your building or the neighborhood and incorporate that into the name. This story can also be used when creating your restaurant slogan or tagline.

4. Use words that people outside of China associate with a Chinese restaurant
