Thank you for your question.

Is this going to be a local business, or a national chain, or an international entity? If local or national, what state or location are you wishing to start from--where will you be filing?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

This is going to be a local business in Mooresboro North Carolina

Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 5 years ago.
Thank you for your follow-up.

Such a name, or rather a close name to yours already exists in North Carolina. Therefore if you incorporate (and in process would have to place an "Inc." at the back of your name), you would not be permitted to start a similar business.

Here is the link to a similar name, although in Durham. Since the database invalidates similar names if they are in the same state, this would bar you from utilizing the name:
