If you walk down the street in your hometown you’re bound to find new restaurants opening and old restaurants closing. It’s a tough, yet exciting business, but luckily the internet has made it much easier to connect with your customers to ensure that your restaurant doesn’t see an early demise. Others want to get right down to business and establish their brand website as a hub for customers to come to and book reservations, read blog posts, share on social media and chat with other customers. What’s cool about the header image is that you receive a parallax effect, grabbing attention without slowing down your website. In addition, it provides overlaying text and buttons for sending people to places like your menu or blog posts. Scrolling down you’ll continue to see some of the parallax backgrounds, and these are complemented by beautiful modules for inserting your content. For example, one of them is for explaining everything about your restaurant, while another has your specials with pictures of the food and prices. Place your menu on the homepage as well, and include testimonials from people who have visited in the past. Along with a contact form and a beautiful navigational menu.
It would be tough to run a restaurant website without a reservation module. That’s why Restaurant and cafe has this already built in. This way, your customers can come to the website, choose what time and how many people are coming, and forget about calling in to make a reservation. The restaurant Menu section is rather powerful for such a basic, free theme. Feel free to upload all the images you want and share details about your food, drinks, and dessert. The blog is separate from the homepage, but you can link to it from the menu. As for eCommerce, the Restaurant and cafe theme integrates with WooCommerce for quickly uploading your products and selling them through the site. Not all restaurants are going to do this, but it might be good for delivery or when selling restaurant merchandise. Along with being translation ready and mobile-friendly, the Restaurant and cafe theme is worth looking into.
