Why the name "BAPS!"?
That's actually a two part answer. The first part is easy. Both Brad's have the same first and middle name, spelled the same way. When you add our last names, you get the initials that create our business name: Brad Allen Pelletier Solley.
The other reason for the name BAPS! was because we were looking for something catchy. Something that would make you feel like it would be a fun, family oriented place to go. "Lets go to BAPS!". Much like Buffalo Wild Wings came up with the term "BDubs", we thought BAPS! was catchy. What clued us into the name is the fun part.
We were looking at YouTube videos one day, and came across a picture song (a video that posts different images, as they sing a comedic song, custom written for the images). One of the images showed a basketball player in mid air, trying to slam dunk, and another basketball player was attempting to block. His hand however was in the wrong place, and he was about to slap the opposing player in the face. The song suddenly stopped at that picture, and the artist suddenly sang "BAP! What ya gonna do about that?!?!" and that's when we both looked at each other and said "BAPS!". When we found the correlation with our names, it was a perfect fit. Thus, BAPS! was born.
