A successful restaurant website should blend both visual and usefulness in one design. Aside from being attractive, it should provide potential customers with the ability to locate important information like menus, location, hours of operation, and contact information without any distractions. That’s why it’s important to hire an expert team of professionals specializing in custom web design.

At Thrive Web Designs, we build custom websites for restaurants that people want to use. Not only do we communicate your core messaging, but we design it in such a way that converts online visitors into paying customers. After all, your website is essential for gaining exposure so you can focus on more important aspects of running your restaurant.

A website is a central hub through which all other accounts link back to. This includes your Google My Business and social media pages. That’s why it’s essential to use the right logo, tone, and information. At Thrive Web Designs, we can provide you with custom web development, logo design, content marketing, and more to ensure your branding is consistent, uniform, and memorable on all platforms.

Responsive Design 

At Thrive Web Designs, we take a mobile-responsive approach to website development. Whether a customer uses a phone, tablet, or computer, your website should adjust according to the screen size they are using. That’s why we optimize images, simplify navigation, and ensure your content is viewable and aesthetically pleasing to ensure an optimal browsing experience on all devices. 

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Local customers need to find your restaurant online. That’s why it’s essential to provide optimized, informative content that Google uses to rank your website in local maps. At Thrive Web Designs, we can help you craft optimized content for local search results using targeted keywords to help you rank in local directories.

Why A Restaurant Website Matters

Do you know that nearly 60% of potential diners check the website of a restaurant before deciding to eat there? That’s why you want to provide them with informative content and visually appealing images to help them make the right decision about your restaurant. If your website fails to show the same level of care you put into a dining experience, you could be losing business. Below are some important reasons why a restaurant website matters. 

Low Advertising Costs

Social media ads and commercials are expensive. Instead, a website allows you to publish a wide variety of information at a fraction of the cost. Even more, a website is available 24/7 to anyone online, and you can easily update it at any time, whereas the cost of purchasing new ads is far greater. 

Key Information

A restaurant website gives you a platform to provide customers with the basic information they need, including hours of operation, location, menu, and more. By answering these basic questions, you can decrease the time spent answering phone calls. You can also keep your customers updated on any promotions, such as lunch or dinner specials or holiday events. 

Improve Search Rankings

When people are hungry, they tend to search online for local restaurants to eat at. That’s why it’s essential for your business to be found on Google. By investing in search engine optimization (SEO), you can rank higher on the list of results for important keywords people use to search for restaurants like yours. 

Brand Awareness

A custom-built website will help you build a solid brand image. This is especially important if you are just starting out to help customers become acquainted with your restaurant. Consistent use of your logo, tone, and information will further entice customers to visit. 

Differentiate from the Competition

Most restaurants have an online presence. That’s why it only makes sense that you should too. If you don’t, you’ll be losing out on business to your competition. A custom-built website will help highlight things that set you apart and persuade customers to pick you over other restaurants. Without one, people may assume that if you don’t care about your website that you don’t care about the quality of your food either. 

Our Process

At Thrive Web Designs, we know that a website is the ultimate marketing tool. From gathering information about your business and goals to launch and presentation, our expert team of professionals will make sure you are 100% satisfied at every checkpoint. 

  • Our process usually begins with an in-person meeting or phone call to gather the specs needed to get your project started. During this time, we will ask about your goals, business, and desired features. This information helps us to develop a wireframe for your new website that showcases your restaurant in a fresh, authentic manner. 
  • Once we agree on the site map, we will begin the development process, where we will work with you on any design elements. The length of this design process often varies from project to project, depending on the actual website. Your website’s pages will incorporate important content, features, and images that far exceed most marketing standards
  • Once your website is complete and ready to launch, we will send you a link to review each page and allow you to provide us with edits or additions. Once you give us the final approval, we will then take your new website live!
