100 Korean Food Truck Name Ideas

Korean food has become wildly popular in a lot of Western countries over the last few years which can be seen with a plethora of Korean restaurants popping up in cities selling everything from spicy barbequed meats and Kimchi to Bibimbap (warm rice topped with mixed vegetables, beef or chicken, raw egg, with soy sauce and chilli pepper paste for seasoning).

This is a good sign as it shows there is demand and where restaurants go food trucks and mobile catering businesses often follow. Take for example the very popular Kogi Korean food truck in Los Angeles that specializes in BBQ food.

So if you are starting a Korean food truck business and need a name to help you stand out from the crowd and attract customers then read on for 101 Korean food truck name ideas.

Tips for naming your Korean food truck

Before we dive into the list of 101 Korean food truck names there are a few tips that help you to come up with some of your own and other things you may want to consider.

Is it registered or trademarked?

Before naming your Korean food truck you should check the name you are going for to see if it is not already registered as a food business or trademarked.

This can get you into all types of trouble down the line and can result in you having to rename your food truck business which can present all kinds of problems for branding and customer recognition.

You can check Companies House in the UK to see if the name is taken, or if you are in the US you can go to the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USTPO).

US citizens can also check with their local state office to see if a food business is registered with the name they want.

Add the food or country in the title

When coming up with a name for your Korean food truck you want to either put the name of the food you intend to sell ( Bao buns for example) or the nation the food is connected to (in this case Korean).

This will let your customers know what specific type of food or national foods you are selling and remove any guesswork and barriers to a sale.

Keep it short and catchy

Do not use any more than three words when deciding on a Korean food truck name. You want the name to be as memorable as possible and roll off the tongue. It also helps if the words rhyme

Any more than three words can just sound a bit awkward and lead to confusion and customers mispronouncing your name or just forgetting it completely.

Use familiar words

Most people like familiarity and don’t like to second guess what it is you sell. It is good to be creative, but there is a fine balance to be struck.

Therefore try to use words people are familiar with and stay away from two words that have been smashed together to form a new unfamiliar word.

Use a simple formula

There is a very effective and simple formula you can use when coming up with Korean food truck names.

You add a name or place, plus the specific food or national foods you intend to sell, and add the word Co. at the end.

Example Korean food truck name:

Chan-yeol  (name) + fried chicken (food) + Co. = Chan-yeol’s fried chicken Co.

Seoul (place) + Bao (food) + Co. = Seoul Boa Co.

Not only does this tell potential customers what food you sell but also makes you sound more professional by having the word “Co.” in the name.

Make a shortlist

From the list below of 100 Korean food truck names, you can maybe add some more to the list and then shortlist 20, and then get it down to the top 10 you are happy with.

You can then run this list by family and friends or do an online survey through Survey Monkey or Facebook to get some feedback at scale.
