Restaurants Attribute Growth in Business to Online Ordering
Takeout business has been steadily increasing for restaurants that use their own Web sites to accept orders online. According to Mike Stanziale of Ronnie's Deli & Caterers in Morris Plains, NJ, www.ronniesdeli.com, "Having our own Web site with online ordering has given us a competitive advantage over other establishments in our area. People really enjoy the convenience of online ordering. In addition to attracting new customers and maintaining loyalty among our existing customers, the frequency of weekly orders from the same individuals has increased dramatically."
Up until recently, obtaining a restaurant Web site with online ordering was available only to those willing to spend hundreds or perhaps even thousands of dollars. Plus, the business of guaranteeing that each order gets through to the restaurant has always been a major concern. BigHoller has changed all of that. According to G.R. Homa, Director of Sales and Marketing at BigHoller, "We've talked to dozens of restaurateurs to understand their needs and concerns. What we found was that restaurant owners wanted their own Web site that they can promote, online orders that go to their fax machine so they don't need a computer, reliable monitoring of orders so no order is lost, and above all, affordable pricing."
"We wanted our customers to be happy. That is why we do not require any long term contract. We have been able to prove that with some promotion of their Web site, within a half a year, owners could easily be receiving 100 or more orders per month."
Backed by a state of the art technology infrastructure, sales for restaurant Web sites with online ordering have been robust. The advantage of a Web site from BigHoller is that it contains everything a restaurant would want in a Web site. This includes a tour page, customer testimonials, location information with interactive driving directions, reservations, gift certificates, and of course online ordering. For more information you can visit their Web site at www.bigholler.com.
BigHoller provides restaurants with their own low-cost, professionally designed Web sites with online ordering to fax capability. BigHoller restaurants are growing their customer base and increasing their takeout revenue by offering customers the convenience of online ordering.
