Food ordering website and Marketing for Restaurants

Food ordering website and Marketing for Restaurants

Food ordering website and marketing go hand in hand. For many mom and pop restaurants, a key to success in offering their own branded online food ordering lies in a good communication and collaboration between their 3rd party vendors, an online ordering tech vendor and a marketing vendor. Ideally, local restaurants should work with a vendor that offers both online ordering technology and marketing services like Takeout Button®  to ensure a smooth flow of technical functionalities and exposure.

This week on the Dining Out Radio Show, Takeout Button®  shared a story of a restaurant partner, Blue Sake - Thai Sushi Restaurant in Dunedin - that fully utilizes Takeout Button® ’s online food ordering technology and marketing services to help them stand out from the crowd.

For the technical part, Takeout Button® just launched Blue Sake’s new food ordering website for takeout, delivery and catering (off-premise dining options) with more mouthwatering food pictures, customer testimonials, and a story that has never been told by the owner, Angie. Visit Blue Sake website, http://bluesakedunedin.com/, to view their new food ordering website and see their full menu.

For the marketing part, Takeout Button®  creates custom social marketing strategies and drives awareness of their online ordering to their social media followers using multiple platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Google My Business.

Blue Sake always has several exciting special deals. For the month of July, customers can get a FREE ginger salad with online order of $30 or more. For order of $40 or more, you can get a FREE quality Thai fabric mask. Or better yet, order $80 or more and get a FREE premium plastic face shield.
