So you've been to all the coffee shops in the area a hundred times. You've studied the decor and the atmosphere. You've perfected all the French presses and the latte art and the brewing techniques. You took a few business classes in college. You think, "I could do this -- I should open up my own shop!"
We encourage this line of thinking. We say, the more the merrier when it comes to coffee shops. Especially in Nashville.
But it's not just the coffee and tea you have to get right. It's vital that you come up with the perfect coffee shop name. Your name conveys to the world who you are and what kind of place your shop is. It needs to be unique, fun, and welcoming. A lot of pressure, isn't it? Don't worry; we're here to help.
Without further ado, we present the first ever* very scientific Coffee Shop Name Generator! (oooo, ahhhh...imagine us pulling a dusty sheet off an indistinguishable figure to reveal a giant metal contraption)
Here. We. Go.
