In logos red usually symbolizes excitement and power.  Yellow is assocaited with optimism and being agreeable.  

Ultimately, it's choosing the color scheme that best represents your brand and its values.

On a white background, I like the bright yellow on black for a logo, and the red for the background with white as 'Open', on an arrow (directional part of the sign).  Hope that's not too confusing James Hoff!

What is this for?  What are you trying to communicate?  Who is your target?

 

One of the most important and overlooked elements in a logo is "flexibility."  I learned this my 1st year in marketing working with a designer.

 

So, you need to think about where and how you will use this...including your website.

 

Is your website going to be black?  BTW, if it is, that's really hard to read.  And, if it's white or some other color, how will this logo look.

 

So hard for me to answer.

 

BTW, this logo is very plain and ordinary.  Looks like it doesn't stand for much and it doesn't communicate anything.

 

I know that's not the question you asked, but take this into consideration.

James,

I would not know which to pick, even though we do branding and marketing all over the globe.  I don't have enough information to give you an intelligent answer.  Color has everything to do with branding as well as combination, however, it depends on a myriad of factors.
