from the Easy Street Marketing Blog

So you've decided to go into business for yourself. You've got the plan, you've got the drive. Now, what to call it? Choosing a good name has no universal rules, but it helps to consider the product or service, the image you want to portray, your target market and your advertising strategy among other things.

If your business is a franchise like Taco Bell or Midas Mufflers, choosing a name for the ownership company is not really a marketing issue. It's probably not going to be on any of your advertising material, so have fun with it. below are things to consider for the independent business owner.

Of course, it may be good idea to mention your product or service in the company name. In the case of our graphic design/printing company, when we first started out, our primary business was graphic design and we operated out of our house, on Easy Street. Hence the name; Easy Street Designs. It also helped that the term "Easy Street" is also a common term used to convey a stress free atmosphere, so it still works, even though the shop is no longer located on that street. It also lent itself well to a catchy tag line; "Make it Easy!" We probably would not have gone with Hayes Drive Designs, had we lived there.

Press Release (PEDCO.org) Rocla Concrete Tie, Inc., the nation’s largest producer of pre-stressed concrete rail road ties, has announced that it has selected Pueblo as the location for its new Colorado production facility. The Pueblo plant, which is scheduled to be opened in the fourth quarter of this year, will be the company’s largest facility in the U.S. Rocla also has plants in Amarillo, TX and Bear DE. The announcement was made in conjunction with the Pueblo Economic Development Corporation (PEDCO).


More than 100 people will eventually be employed at the plant when it reaches full operating capacity. Construction of the facility will begin immediately on property the company purchased in the St. Charles Industrial Park on the south side of the city near the current Vestas Wind Systems plant. Rocla estimates that at full capacity, the new Pueblo plant can produce between 750,000 and one million ties per year.
In making the announcement, Peter Urquhart, Rocla’s president praised the cooperation the company has received from PEDCO, the city of Pueblo and Pueblo Country. “We look forward to being a member of this community and doing business here,” he said. He added that the move from Denver was prompted by the fact that the land on which the Denver plant was located was purchased by the city to make way for expansion of the light rail system.

Mr. Urquhart explained that the technology to be used at the Pueblo plant to produce its ties has evolved during the company’s 25 year history. He noted that Rocla’s customers include the largest rail road companies including Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroad. Its products are used in for Class 1 railroad lines, light rail/transit projects, high speed rail lines and industrial lines throughout the country. Since Rocla’s founding it has produced more than 20 million ties.

Andrew Lang, PEDCO’S chairman noted that communities outside of Colorado were actively seeking the new Rocla plant. “We are thrilled that our city was selected which will bring a significant number of new jobs here but will also keep them in Colorado. In addition, there will be more construction jobs in the near term. As always, PEDCO, the City of Pueblo and Pueblo County worked together as a team to present to Rocla the many advantages of building their facility here. We also received excellent cooperation from BNSF, Union Pacific and EVRAZ Rocky Mountain Steel in order to establish a rail line to the plant’s location.” Lang also noted that the decision by Rocla is another example of the advantages resulting from the city’s ½ cent sales tax which is earmarked to support economic development. A portion of these funds was made available to Rocla to help provide rail service for its new building.
