Wright Hassall makes top ten best named businesses

Maisie Jeynes 12th Jul, 2017

A WARWICKSHIRE law firm has made the top ten best business names in Britain.

Wright Hassall in Leamington was voted sixth in the nationwide hunt, which saw Spruce Springclean, a carpet shop in Cornwall, take the top spot.

Other contenders included Portsmouth-based locksmith Surelock Homes and London wine bar Planet of the Grapes.

Florists Floral and Hardy, from Barnet, came fourth in the poll, and a chippie from Wales called A Fish Called Rhondda rounded out the top five.

Responding to a survey by Vistaprint, many Brits say a witty or memorable business name was likely to make them use that company over a similar one.

A Vistaprint spokesman 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.”

Ironically, Wright Hassall was never intended as a gimmick, and is actually the name of original partners Edward Wright and James Wright Hassall, who founded the firm in 1875.
