Well known companies with a corporation/brand name that contains "One"
October 9, 2013 12:46 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for examples of well known corporations or marketing brand names that are some variant of, or conceptually related to "One":

Such as names that incorporate some concept related to:

One
Single
Unitary
Premier
Sole
First

Not stuff like "AAA duct cleaning" tricks to get a company listed first in the yellow pages, but companies that have based their corporate name or a public marketing brand on being "One". CapitalOne, FirstService (property mgmt. firm), the common "OneCall" service operated for underground utilities location in many places, Unocal, etc for example.

They're not a for-profit corporation, but they're definitely a major brand in the non-profit sector: http://www.one.org

There's also the new XBOX One.

And One Direction.

Oh, and a less obvious one: Kirin Ichiban beer.

There are also about a million sushi restaurants named "Ichiban" in Canada and the US.
