Campaign Title: Best Company Names in Britain
Spruce Springclean, a carpet cleaning shop in Cornwall, has been named the best business name in Britain, according to a new survey.
It was followed by the rib-tickling Surelock Homes, a Portsmouth-based locksmith, and the Planet of the Grapes – a wine bar in London.
Four in 10 Brits say that a witty or memorable business name is likely to make them use that company over a similar one.
And one in 10 say they can remember funny company names from more than a decade ago.
The survey was conducted by Vistaprint, whose head of UK Oliver Harcourt said: “Small businesses around the UK are always finding clever and innovative ways to showcase their offerings.
“Having a creative business name is one example of how you can be more memorable to your customers and stand out from the crowd.
Some of the shops from our poll are businesses that are generations old, showing that a catchy name can stand the test of time.”
Florists Floral and Hardy, from Barnet, came fourth in the poll, and a fish-and-chip shop from Wales with the incredible name A Fish Called Rhondda rounded out the top five.
