I'm starting a food business from home and I am needing help with a name. My cuisine style is soul food with a twist, a little edginess to it, but I also want to incorporate other ethnic cuisines.
Are you in the US? Before you get started, I suggest taking time to check out all of your local regulations and such so you don't go into a rabbit hole and then get shut down. I say this because folks who start home based food business in my area get shut down real quick and then it is hard to get restarted--like find a commercial kitchen, get certified etc.
If you are not in the US, perhaps your laws are less stringent and this will not be an issue.

My husband and I are starting a food business from home. I do the baking, cakes, pastries, cupcakes, etc. and he's the cook. He specializes in gourmet fast food and American food with an Indian twist. We are looking for a name for our company and needed some unique suggestions.
Indi Fusion Bakery and More.
To me, I think it is a bit hard to combine selling food and bakery with a combined name.
It may be better to focus on one name at a time, but that's just me!
Classic Indi-American Gourmet Eats & (example your name) Roch's Bakery Fusion

I'm starting my own food business from home. It will include everything homemade including cooking, baking, desserts, salads, and sauces. I'm finding it very difficult to come up with an attractive catching name that will say it all.
Any suggestions for a name no one has already?
I am looking for a good for my new business. I love canning and making my own recipes by using all natural ingredients. I make my own dressing, jelly, jams, and syrups. My husband wants to use Cotton Patch Natural (that's the name of our campground) and I'm looking for a more eye catching name.
I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
I am getting crazy searching for a good business name for homemade food products. It will be based on Mediterranean, Italian kitchen recipes with fresh ingredients, simple, possibly organic, and healthy, with traditional recipes from grandmother's kitchen, including fresh pasta, cakes, and Sardinian based food.
The products will be sold at markets and I will offer delivery/catering services and cooking in your place showing you how to do things.
I want to integrate an Italian name, but I am not sure if everybody can give the right pronunciation. Thanks so so much for your help.
Kind regards Nora
You could try Nonna Kitchen - Grandma's kitchen
Nonna Italian Kitchen - Grandma's Italian Kitchen
Nonna is a very popular name in Italy right now. It is used for selling cheeses. Right now nobody is using this name for a restaurant. I just check with my friend from Italy and she said this would be an excellent name to use.
One company uses Nonna Rosa to sell Italian Cheese. If you want you can also add your name to the Nonna so they would know it was yours.

In order to translate properly go to google translator copy and paste the name you choose, click on listen for the proper way to pronounce it.
A few names I liked are MAMMA IN CUCINA. Mom in the kitchen.
NON SOLO PASTA. Not only pasta.
NATURALMENTE BUONO. Naturally good.
There's already a restaurant called Nonna's kitchen. When I went to register my business name they told me I could have that name it's already taken.
I need a name for my homemade food business. My products are mango float, ice cream rolls, choco balls, and other frozen stuff. But at the same time, I also make fried food like pizza rolls, lumpia, and cheese sticks. I was wondering if I could find a name that would embody all of my products. Hot and cold? Frozen and fried? Help guys!

Even if this is Canada, (I am USA) make sure about licensure for doing this. And you have to do it from a commercial kitchen. That means a kitchen that meets requirements of stove, fridge meet temps, bug free, mouse free, etc. All sorts of things to think about.
That said, name: Just like you cooked!
