Updated on February 5, 2017

If you have a deep love for burgers and the money to start a business, then a burger restaurant is just what’s in store for you! Concoct the perfect burger then venture onto the following steps.

Burger Restaurant Names

Burger restaurant names should sound good and portray how well you know the burger biz! Here’s some tips to consider when thinking of burger restaurant names:

  • Laid back: Burger restaurants are not for the fancy crowd; it’s where people can go wearing t-shirts and jeans, enjoy good food with family or friends in a laid-back kind of atmosphere.

  • Signature Burger: If you thought of an awesome name for your signature burger, use it in the name; otherwise, the burger may be named after the restaurant.

  • Alliterations: Burger obviously starts with the letter “b” which opens up a whole world of naming opportunities when you consider alliterations. If you’re not familiar with this, an alliteration is a repetition of a sound in consecutive words. For example: Bob’s Burger Barn.

  • Rhymes: If you want your name to stick like ketchup to a bun, using a rhyme is appropriate and fun!

  • Your name: Be a proud business owner and incorporate your name into the business name.

Now for a list of burger restaurant names:

Naming Your Restaurant

If these names don’t make someone want to stop in for a good burger, then I don’t know what will!

Naming your business might possibly be the toughest part, but think about the relief you’ll feel when those doors are open for business once and for all!

Opening a Burger Restaurant

Food service establishments require special permits and licensing in order to open for business.

First, start with registering your business with the name through the state’s Division of Corporations and then contacting your city or county to register it locally for business tax purposes. You will also need to be in contact with the health department to find out what permits and inspections are required through them; after all, restaurants concern the health of others and should be deemed clean to operate!

If you’ve ever heard someone emphasise the statement “location, location, location!” there is a good reason for this; a location can make or break any business, especially in the first year during the critical period of getting established within the community. While locations in areas in lots of traffic tend to be on the more expensive side, this will work to your advantage! Try to think about where your location is in proximity to major county or city events, as during these events, you have an opportunity for an extremely busy period, which is good!

Depending on the type of burger business you are securing whether it’s a physical location or a food truck, you will need to think about what kind of supplies, equipment, and furnishings you will need for the business. While buying these things new usually mean no headache, it can be really expensive. Make a list of what you need and try to find most of it secondhand and just refurbish, you can save hundreds or even thousands doing this!

Don’t forget one of the most important final steps, making your menu! Ever burger place needs a signature burger! Not only this, but if you come up with one of those food-eating challenges, your customers can have an opportunity to win some restaurant swag, which means they basically take on the challenge to win a t-shirt, thus advertising for your restaurant when they wear it!

        Nice post. I think that developing a brand paleonsrity and staying consistent with that is so important. People get too caught up in thinking about how they need to sound on social media. While it is certainly good to keep that in mind, I find it is best to relax and just be yourself with it. People want something that is valuable but also relateable.
