Fox Restaurant Concepts is a highly successful restaurateur that conceives and develops its concepts in-house and taps outside creative resources as needed. They recently turned to Boom Ideanet to generate naming ideas for a new concept. We helped them prepare a brief, invited the Ideanet to chime in, and within a few days, 24 creators had contributed over 500 names.
