I had this thought today…
What if there was a business idea for a very outspoken twist on just a regular business idea and it actually was a success!?
This first started out as thinking up this paint color line with radical, inappropriate names. Here is a list of some of the color names I came up with just on the spot, top of my head:
I mean really you could use any inappropriate word, but you have to make sure to pair that word with the right shade of the right color to go along with the word.
Bitch – it is going to be a black based deep purple
Big Black Cock – a very glossy pure silicone black
Wake and Bake – a middle ground green, with a tint of tan
The Hangover – it will be the brightest white you have ever seen, blinding even
Piss Excellence – more of a golden-yellow, with a hint of bronze as well
Vodka Cranberry – shade of magenta, with light and subtle specs of silver
Bastard Blue – a really light denim blue
Shart – I mean come on, you know it’s going to be a shitty brown
I could go on, but I am sure you get the point. So you could do this with any regular thing. It’s what every joke is made of. Everyone loves funny.
However, a friend and I were talking today about how we could open up a coffee shop and name it something rude, like ‘Forget Mornings’, have it open 24/7 in the downtown area where we live and it would thrive like a mother fucker. Naming specialty drinks names like ‘Exam Week’ or ‘Walk of Shame’, ‘Dead AF’, ‘Eff Off’, and ‘Kill Me Now’.
We would open in the heart of downtown, surrounding ourselves with college kids (we all know they survive on coffee, been there-done that) and the working class who walks in and out of work morning to evening, sucking down coffee the whole time, along with the party crowd, who wanna party even harder, later, and wanna get that extra buzz, what a great time to be open late night.
This little gem would be decked out in black, gold, chrome, and all the other amazing shiny decor. Very stylish. Lighting would be a magnificent lantern type lighting, dim, but you can also take the perfect selfie anywhere you sit. The seating would be the most comfortable, we would have the highest speed of WiFi, and outlets including USB outlets in every perfect spot. Our cardboard coffee coozies would always have some clever line written on them, or personal, some witty sentence describing your mood. We would even eventually brand our own apparel with our own special logo and slogan. What more could you ask for…?
Shit maybe we could even get our liquor license and also offer a Baileys espresso bomb for an up-charge. Ha. Starbucks, lookout, it’s soon going to be our time (while I also sit here and think, again, before I put this down, I never really researched if this actually already is a thing somewhere in this crazy world, don’t doubt it)!
So, we have two solid examples how to make businesses better and even the best. Times change though. So, how long would are gorgeous foul-mouthed cafe last? With changing times and trends, we would have a changing menu, changing names, and changing ideas. Decor? Classy, dimly lit, free WiFi accessible coffee shops are always going to be in, who are we kidding!?
I’m in love with all my ideas, but are you? I will always be my biggest fan and think everything that comes to my mind is pure greatness. What are your thoughts?
