There are a lot of factors that make a business great: A visionary leader, dedicated employees, and loyal customers. But what about the company’s name? Sure, classic mega-brands like Apple and Amazon will always make the official top-10 lists. But we’re partial to the creativity and humor that we see in the names of small businesses from all around the world.
Here are some of our favorites:
The Merchant of Tennis: a tennis supply store in Canada. It’s considered “Shakespeare’s racket purveyor of choice”.
Florist Gump: a florist in Scotland. Run, florist, run!
Pho Shizzle: a Vietnamese restaurant in Washington State. The favorite soup restaurant of Slurp Dog.
Indiana Bones and the Temple of Groom: pet care store in California. Extra points for pulling off the tricky double-pun with style!
