I was just curious to see how many of you guys named your business after yourseslf or if you chose a name that places emphasis on your quality work like "Forever-Green Lawn Care" or
"Precision Lawn Care". Thanks for your responses.

None of the above here. Named after my daughters, Taylor and Brittany. Can't use my last name...Brown Lawns wouldn't sell too well, methinks !! :)

Back in my wild partying days I played keyboards in a clasic rock band, the members nicknamed me PJ (Patrick Jack) first and middle name. It stuck and is very easy for customers to remember now

Like PJ (pjslawncare) I also got nicknamed by my initials (back in my army days)

People know me as PC and my wife's initial is N.
Therefore PC & N as both me and my wife work together.

Startred part time business using my name in 1995 and switched over to Luxury Lawn Inc. in 2001 when it became a full time job for me. For me it sounded more professional.

I use my initials.

I simply used my last name as the business name. Our family is known by just about everyone in this small town so it helps.

Believe it or not I went from AM Lawn Service to just plain old Richard Martin. The customers kept screwing up the checks with AM Lawn Service. Now there are no questions as to what name to make the checks out to.

Treffert Lawn Works.. If I ever have a customer that questions how my quality of work might be (only once) I tell them that I stand by my work and thats the reason for my name. I dont hide behind a made up name (NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT :D) They always sign with a smile. :)

With a last name of Grasshoff, I could of used it in my business name but I didn't because so many people mispell it all the time, you should see the mail I get sometimes. And if I had a dollar everytime I have been called grasshopper I would not need to work.

there is an LCO in this area called Opies. It is short for the guys last name. (it's pronounced ah-peas not oh-peas. they should have added a "p"). I didn't know this for 3 years. I always thought that was a funny name until I realized the true pronounciation.

01-05-2004, 09:15 PM
well...i have fallen in love with the name "Pro Enterprises" and i think that i will be staying with it for now. Sounds good.

as for the poll-i would have to vote for option number 3

I don't use a business name, just my personal name. I work solo, so am small. I've never seen the need to have a name. I have no name on my pickup, no name on any clothes.

Just keep working, do good work, and the customers will come. No need to advertise.
