Creating Your Grocery Store Logo

Launching a new business can be an exciting journey, especially for something as essential as a local grocery store. Whether you’re helping to remove food deserts from an underserved neighborhood or adding a new specialty store to a popular area, you’re going to need to develop a brand strategy that helps you stand out. The most important brand element is the logo.

So what are the best elements to add to your new grocery store logo? Here are some tips for creating a great logo and branding design.

Anatomy of a Good Grocery Store Logo

The branding of your new grocery store can be a big factor in determining if your new business will be profitable and will attract a loyal customer base. Taking a look at two of the most popular grocery store chains in the United States, Wegman’s (Northeast US) and Publix (Southeast US), we can see a few similarities with their brand strategy:

  • Their “main” logo is a simple text-based logo, without any symbols or distractions.
  • Their alternate logos add a single color element while still maintaining the original design. Wegman’s adds an icon that looks like a table setting done with a brushstroke, while Publix adds a simple “P” inside of a green circle.

Specialty or niche stores like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s add a little more flourish to their logo but still maintain an overall simple aesthetic. This seems to mean that to create a successful grocery store, you should keep your logo simple, with few elements, and let the products do the talking instead.

Popular Symbols, Fonts, and Colors for Grocery Store Branding

When thinking about your branding strategy, remember that the goal is to convey the benefit of your store: your shoppers have access to fresh, high-quality produce and food that makes them feel good, like they’re making good choices for their families. Because of that, you should stick to a color palette that offers a lot of organic and natural colors, like bright greens, oranges, and cherry reds. 

Best Grocery Store Logo Colors  

Avoid harsh colors that aren’t normally associated with food and nature like neons, and avoid colors that are associated with rotting or poor-quality food like mustard yellow, browns, and blacks.

Common Grocery Store Logo Graphics 

If you’re interested in having symbols and graphics in your logo, try to convey the quality of products or services that you offer by adding images of fruits, vegetables, and grains. If you want to stand out, add some local flavor to your brand by adding imagery that shows hometown pride or how you want the brand to be perceived. Trader Joe’s utilizes a farmscape setting in their logo, as they want to convey a feeling of farm-to-table ingredients that can make you feel safe about their products.

Popular Font Choices for Grocery Stores 

Take a note from the most popular grocery stores, and keep your font simple and easily readable from a distance. Try not to include a lot of cursive or curly fonts, as these can be difficult for customers to read, especially on branded products or packaging.

No matter what you decide to use when creating your new grocery store logo, remember that the goal should be to quickly show your customers what your brand stands for and the brand promise you want to provide as they shop.

1. Enter Your Business Name and Tagline

The TRUiC grocery store logo generator requires you to add your business’s name and optionally a tagline, or slogan, to help generate your logo.

2. Choose a Type of Logo Design, Font, and Color Scheme

When designing your logo, you’ll have to choose between having a logo with a graphic or a text only grocery store logo.

Option 1: Graphic

This type of logo displays your business name with a themed grocery store graphic that will be displayed in a few different layouts. The graphic will either sit next to your business name, or it will sit above it.

After choosing this, you’ll need to choose your favorite font style and color pallet to generate your first set of logo choices.

Option 2: Text 

This type of logo displays your business name or just the initials of your business name in a stylized way using creative fonts and typography

After this, you’ll choose a color pallet and generate your logo choices.

Things to Consider When Picking a Logo

Your company logo can convey different meanings depending on the logo design you choose so try branding your company with a logo sporting symbols, icons, and/or fonts that clearly represents what you’re selling to your customers (e.g., use a coffee cup in the logo for a coffee shop).

Color Psychology - The colors in your business logo design can help define the mood of your business. Consider which color scheme will best represent your logo design when using the color editor and creating your company brand with our logo maker.

  • Warm colors such as red, orange, pink, brown, beige, and yellow are considered to be inviting or exciting.
  • Cool colors like blues, greens, and purples convey a relaxing mood in a brand relating to the ocean or a calming atmosphere. 
  • Black and white provide great contrast when branding your business and are easy to see and read. 

Accessibility - There are basic rules when it comes to creating an effective and accessible logo design. 

  • The font you choose should be easy for customers to read and recognize. 
  • Color contrast is vital for the readability of your business logo.

Icons vs. symbols to make your own logo design - Symbols can help to represent your business, like products you sell or the type and quality of service you offer; it’s like a visual metaphor for your logo design.

For example, a logo design for a CBD oil shop could be depicted as a leaf; the symbolism being that it’s earthy, organic, natural, or all of these. Or, if you own a computer store, you can create a logo design that has the icon of a computer, it can really be that simple.

Font style - Choosing the right font for a logo design is important since fonts capture the attention of customers and show what they can expect from your company. 

If you own a more formal business, such as an accounting firm, you’ll likely want to choose a font that is more minimalistic and professional. If you’re opening a business such as a toy store, you’ll probably want to choose a font that is more fun and whimsical.

What is the difference between copyright, trademark, and patent?

Copyright, trademark, and patent are all types of intellectual property (IP)  that do different things: 

Copyrights are often used by artists to protect their creative work; if someone copyrights their work (e.g., novel, song, etc.), they own the rights to be able to do what they want with it, from selling to recreating.

A trademark, according to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are commonly used for logos and slogans.

Patents are used to protect inventions and ideas. For instance, if someone creates a type of machine or tool, a patent can grant rights to the inventor so no one can use their invention/idea without permission.
