two business names...


Recommended Posts

How do you handle 2 bus names i started candles have a name for that, then branched off to bb and have a name for that, if i ever open a storefront

how do i encorporate the two..

my thoughts are i would wanst both to be advertised(sign) because i dont want customers to think its just candles but bb too.

has anyone ever run into this...

I had the same problem too, because my candle business name was strictly candles, so when I added b&b I came up with a new name for that side as well.

But, now that it's time to finally do my website, I've decided to change the name to something that covers both. It was a very hard decision, and even harder to come up with a new name, but I figured it was the easiest solution.

I didn't want to run and maintain 2 websites when I could just do one, and I wasn't sure how to advertise or what to do about a retail store either.

I eventually(many years down the road) would like to have a store front too, so this seemed like the logical thing to do, well definately easier.

Good Luck!

I've been selling my painted glass alongside my paraffin wax candles for the last few years & called it Chiara Crafts. Now I'm doing soy candles, dropping the pw candles & painting less glass but am calling the business Chiara Candles & Crafts, that way it encompases all the light oriented things I do & leaves me room to include B&B in the future.

Not only do I do candles, CP soap, B&B, and alittle MP, I also make home decor items and other craft items (for this fall I'm workin on checkbook covers, makeup & cosmetic bags, handbags, and wallets). So I have a name for my candles and stuff and the rest just fall under my actual company name - Sunshine Sundries & Gifts. My candle and soaps and such stay constant, but my crafty items change with what I feel like making and what is selling. Sometimes I get a great deal on fabric so I'll make pillows - other times I get a deal on lampshades so I'll decorate those... I've got beading stuff to make wine charms and candle jewlery... I just get bored easily and I suffer from insomnia so instead of just laying there, I get up and work for a few hours. People tell me I've got too much on my plate (I do all this with four kids and a hub with MS) but if I stopped keeping some variety, I think I'd go crazy... lol

Anyway - I just thought that I'd say that could be an option for you.

Life & Light!
