A free website can be a great first step for a restaurant to take control of their IT infrastructure.
When trying to create an integrated product, it always helps to imagine the customers journey from how they would start their first engagement with the product and where the customer could potentially be taken further down in the future.
Applying such thinking for the online ordering system, every restaurant needs a website and today the dominant players in the market offering websites are WIX and Squarespace.
The sad part is that you have to at least pay $30/month to get your website hosted on your own domain securely.
Moreover because neither of the services are actually designed for restaurants, you will ultimately end up uploading a PDF file for the menu, which is definitely a poor experience for the customers looking at the website.
The biggest problem with having a PDF menu on the website is that, you never get the opportunity to update it and it looks awful on a mobile device.
Restoplus will soon launch a purpose built web-hosting platform for restaurants, which is built with state-of-the art technology, along with an irresistible offering:
- Free for life, totally! 🍾
- Mobile Optimised
- Content management system built-in for instant updates
- Free SSL certificate for security
- Free Hosting on your own domain
- Global CDN for super-fast experience
- SEO friendly
- Dedicated menu page (No more PDFs for menu) 🥂
Web hosting for restaurants is still an unsolved problem, despite having industry leaders like WIX.
An ideal restaurant website should not only have the menu in the right format but also when a customer is looking at the site, it should be easy for them to place an order directly if they wish to do so. So the point is that your website has to be seamlessly integrated with your online ordering system, and the information provided on your website has to be consistent with what’s on your online ordering system.
So in conclusion, in the quest for us to provide an integrated solution for the restaurant industry, we are first venturing out to solve the website problem by providing totally free mobile optimised and secure website for all the restaurants for free.
This is an opportunity for us to provide value to the restaurant community before we take value out of it.
Once the restaurant has setup their website, then it will be so much easier to turn on online ordering if need be and in the future, it will be all the more easier to turn on related services like Table Ordering, POS etc ... Of course, if you are using the website, there is no obligation to use any of our other services or any hidden charges whatsoever.
We are only a couple of weeks from the lunch, if you’re a restaurant owner please talk to our friendly staff.
Made with ❤️ for restaurant owners.
