Catering Company name ideas?

As some of you know I'm in the proccess of setting up a home catering business. I would like to pick your brains for name ideas.
Every time we come up with a good one someones already using it. Neutral
Our ideas were:

Bespoke Catering(gone)
Character Catering (bit of a mouth full)

Fuzzy Melon ( too 1970's porno)
Duck soup (Fay said no!)

I think Custom Caterers is free, I quite like that.

We aim to specialize (at first) in dinner parties in peoples homes, restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own (they do the dishes Laughing ), that sort of thing.

Any Ideas?

What sort of food will you be specializing in?
Mrs Fiddlesticks

do you have a signature dish title you could adapt?

Simple but good quality cuisine.
A lot of my expience has been in what people might call Gastro pubs, although I was trained in a Michelin Star enviroment.

We will cook whatever the customer wants, thats why I wanted Bespoke but someones got it.

I will be cooking seasonal produce and using local suppliers as much as I can. If people want totally organgic, I will more than happy to lay it on but it will come at a price.
I won't be promoting myself as an organic caterer for fanancial reasons.
Mrs Fiddlesticks

so another word similar to bespoke then?

Tailormade?

Couture?

Something-Dining might be nicer than Something-Catering? To get across the personal, intimate touch.

I agree. The "fine dining" idea seems more appropriate. "Catering" suggests lunch in a marquee, rather than an intimate meal.

Good points.

How about Caterers?

The reason I would like to keep Catering/Cateres in the name, is that when we expand I can keep the name.
In the future (when I can afford a kitchen) I would be more than happy to do the Marquee wedding thing, good quality though. Wink

I'm with the ladies here - go for fine-dining rather than caterers. If you expand later, then you can add a brand.

Give yourself a name you like, that doesn't have to be too descriptive, and then have a tagline underneath?

"Bit of a mouthful" is almost a name in its own right Smile

Doesn't quite go with the image of "fine dining" though...

Seriously, I like Amuse Bouche though, and it's OK to say on the phone.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about the Company Name.
Worry rather about the branding.
Trading Name and Company Name have little need to be the same.

The Alan M Sugar Trading Co Ltd took a while to morph into a plc named after its major (but by no means only) brand.
Similarly, when David Atherthon started Dabs, what do you think the BS stood for?

You can change a company name if you choose to, but its probably a mistake to change a Brand name, if its successful.

BTW gastro literally means tummy upset to a french person... my sister-in-law thought that gastro-pub was taking truth in advertising just too far!

I like the idea of In House, and of Starman, but I haven't combined the two satisfactorily...

How's about Mangetout?

Amuse Bouche is gone what do you think of Happy Mouth?

There's a restaurant/Cafe called Mangetout in Southampton already Tahir.
Always makes me think of Del Boy when I hear Mangetout.

"Mangetout, Mangetout......Bain Marie, my friend". Quote: Del Boy.

the name is important
on a business card ,an advert ,written on a menu card or next to a phone number on a hand it should create a corporate personality that can strongly identify what you do and present it in a favourable way

home cooking Wink

much easier Wink

"charles finds my cookin embarrisin "

really mate ,names matter and the first two of those suggestions are serious if the emoticon is part of the trademark

i thought about a similar thing and i ended up with

supadoopamoos
dpack

i considered" a vous "but just cos it is food i dont need it to be french
maybe "at home "

ummmm

he never liked it when auntie margret cooked Embarassed
