Creative Bakery Names

Starting a bakery is hard work even for a passionate, and talented, baker such as yourself. Up your odds of success by naming your bakeshop (retail, wholesale, or distributor) with a great name that your customers will love and remember (and tell their friends too!).

Funny Bakery Names & Pun Cake Shops Names

Naming your bakery with a funny name is a great idea because bakeries are happy and fun places! Also, people like and remember funny names, so using a silly pun name for your new bakery will make your bakeshop brand more memorable.

Puns are jokes that exploit the different possible meanings of words – a play on words that work well for funny and catchy baking business names. An example is … American Dream transformed to American Cream Bakery.

Bakery Names Generator – How to Use for Naming Ideas

If you have not found your just-right bakery business name from the list above try using naming tools like generators. Here are tips for your best results from business name generators

Step 1: Create Bakery Keyword List

To name your bakery start by researching and brainstorming a list of keywords. These are the terms you will enter into the tool. Remember garbage in – garbage out. This means that the better, more focused and creative, are your keywords the better your results will be.

An easy way to brainstorm keywords to use is to use Google. Put in your business type (bakery, cupcake, cake, bread, dessert) plus “keywords”. Scroll through the keyword page and pick up related words.

I found these additional keywords =  artisan, brownies, catering, bouquet, flavors, wedding, birthday, biscuits, home baking, unique, sweet, rose, tasty, angel food.

Another source of creative keywords to use in the name tool is a glossary of baking terms.  Found even more good keywords to input into the name tool – bakers dozen, bloom, caramel, confectioners, cream, glaze, knead, whisk, zest.

Learn more in my guide: How to Start Your Small Business Legally – Important Legal Requirements

Step 2: Generate Bakery Names

Experiment by entering various keywords – single and multiple variations – into the bakery name generator tool to generate creative names.

Check out the ones I created by using the keyword list I wrote in the prior step.

Step 3: Review and Edit Names Ideas

Now let’s take those names you generated and customize them for your ideal bakery name by adding your personal name (Mary, Susie), nickname (Baby, Queenie) or town name/region (NYC, Tri-State, Southern).

Create a shortlist of ones you like. Next step is where we will pick your final name.

Step 4: Select Final Bakery Brand Name

The final step in naming your bakery is to ask your customers, employees, friends, and family to give their opinions about your name options. Have a list of 3-4 choices and ask them which they like best and why. Try not to influence them so you get their true opinion. Ask them for any name suggestions they can think of. Some of the best names have come from about this way.

Step 5: Trademark Your Bakery Name

Congratulations on creating your new business name! Now let’s protect it from your competitors. Register your business name by trademarking it affordably at Legalzoom.  They will research the marketplace to be sure your desired name is not taken and will then protect it with legal registration.

Step 6: Reserve your Bakery Domain Name

Check to see if your intended name is available as an internet domain name for your website. Use this domain search tool because if your exact name is not available, it will offer many suggested names that are not taken.

FAQ About Bakery Name Ideas

How do I create a unique bakery name?

Try creating a unique bakery name by combining words from two different sources: your personality (fun, quirky, loud) and the ingredients that you use (vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon).

For example, if you’re really outgoing and like to bake pies, then “Pie-licious Pies” would be a good choice! Or, if you are a hippy chick and bake bread consider naming your bakery – Love+Flour. You get the idea – add your personality for totally unique (and memorable name ideas).

If you want to come up with more unique bakery name ideas, why don’t you pick out something that represents your business? Maybe the location of your shop (downtown, riverside, Farm) or maybe even just a word that evokes emotion (and a pang of hunger for baked goods) such as; savor; scrumptious, satisfy or cherish.

Is a bakery a good business?

Bakery is a great business because it’s typically recession-resistant – people don’t stop wanting baked goods. As a result, customer demand is strong, consistent, and year-round.

Bread, cakes, and cookies are usually substantially cheaper to produce than fresh foods (such as burgers and salads). Thus, bakeries have more potential for high margins in lean economic times.

Baked goods are one of the major drivers of retail food sales globally. The global bakery market is forecast to exceed USD 116 billion by 2024, according to Business Wire.

Custom cake decoration has remained strong due to people looking for easy yet elegant ways to personalize their cakes.

Bakers can choose to work with a large or small variety of baked goods or specialize in just one product line: bread, pies, cheesecake, or cupcakes. This type of industry flexibility allows bakers to indulge their passions, practice their talents and expand as the market and their desires lead.

How much money do bakery owners make?

I’ve consulted for many bakeries over the years. In my experience, most bakery owners make between $50k and $80k per year. According to ZipRecruiter, top earners (very few) earn over $135,000, and the lowest (small shops or part-time bakers) make approximately $25,500.

Your baker’s salary will be affected by your sales volume, pricing minus expenses, and overhead.

Are bakeries profitable?

Bakeries can be rather profitable, depending on several factors. The type of bakery and size all play a part in how reliably profitable they are from year to year. The location of your bakery will also have an impact, and customer loyalty has to be considered.

According to Resourceful CEO, the average bakery profit margin is 4-6%, with the highest margin bakeries making a gross profit margin of 9-20%. 

The real key to profiting from a bakery is based on how much turnover you have to be baked regularly and sold at the full retail price before going stale (which varies by type of product too).

Bakery stores have the advantage of longer refrigerated shelf life and higher retail prices. Wholesale bakeries typically turn inventory more quickly, but this can be a disadvantage since they don’t get to take as much profit from each item sold.

How do you price baked goods?

Know that the best way to create a sustainable business is by charging enough for your products so that you can at least cover all of your costs and make a small profit.

Industry-standard formula to calculate COGS (Cost of Goods) is per serving + labor costs per item + Variable overhead costs.

I recommend that you get a copy of the Book of Yields to find average weights and calculate your recipes by weight to determine your costs per ounce or gram.  Then you can more accurately price your baked goods to cover your expenses and make a profit also.

Here is advice from a professional bakery owner on Reddit – once you find the cost per, say of a dozen cupcakes, divide that by 12 to determine the cost of 1 cupcake. Most restaurants want a food cost between 20-30%, so you can divide the price of 1 cupcake by .20 or .30 to find sale cost. Ex, if it costs $12 to produce a dozen cupcakes, it costs $1 to make each cupcake. So with a food cost of 20%, the selling price would be $5 per cupcake, with a cost of 30% the sale price would be $3.35.

Once you know your general cost range, you can calculate your entire recipe, divide by the number of servings to get your ingredient cost.   From Sunshine Bakers of New Jersey, Susan Clark says, “I multiply the cost by four and then fudge it depending on how laborious it is. The markup accounts for labor and packaging.”

What licenses are needed for a bakery?

Your bakery licensing requirement will vary depending on what type of bakery you plan to open, wholesale, retail, mail-order, or online, and your particular city and US State of operations. However, these are the licenses typically required to sell your baked goods listed below.

To find out exactly which licenses are required by your State for bakeries, search using the business license lookup tool.
