You certainly don’t need a Jump Start. Flavor Plate is quick and easy to use on your own, but if you’re like most restaurateurs, you barely have enough time to manage the day-to-day demands of your restaurant—let alone create a website. With our Jump Start we’ll have your website up and running within 3-5 business days. Just contact us to request a Jump Start, and we’ll take care of the rest.
Jump Starts are an optional service. If you request one, they are in addition to your monthly subscription, and do not qualify for our 60-day “Easy” Guarantee. Jump Start fees are non-refundable.
There will always be a few things you’ll need to do to properly set up your restaurant’s website—beyond what a website builder can do. These are just a few of the ways Flavor Plate will help.
Although you don’t have to have a custom domain (you could use a Flavor Plate subdomain) you’ll probably want one. We can help you choose the best available domain name for your restaurant.
If you already have a website with a custom domain name, you’ll need to redirect it to your new website. You’ll need the username and password to your existing domain name registrar, and someone with the proper know-how to assist you. That’s where we come in.
If you already have email setup at your domain name (ex. email@example.com), we’ll work with you to transfer your current setup, and avoid an interruption in your email service. If you need email, we can advise you on email service providers.
The best way to manage your menus is relative to your business. Some restaurants have a lot of menus, and some have menus that change on a regular basis. You might want to use PDFs, and we’ll work with you to discuss their pros and cons. Either way, we’ll find the best option for your restaurant.
Every Flavor Plate website is automatically set-up to meet your restaurant’s basic SEO needs. However, to fully optimize the SEO for any website, you’ll need to make some custom adjustments, and consider a more comprehensive SEO strategy.
There are core commonalities between every restaurant website. They all need to provide menus, photographs, hours of operation, and contact information. Most restaurant website solutions have these covered, but there are always those custom needs unique to your business. We’ll work with you to identify and implement the best solution to these needs, but we’ll also be the first to suggest an alternative if Flavor Plate is unable to meet them.
When it comes to supporting local and sustainable food purveyors, we realize you’re putting your values first, and these best practices often come with a higher price tag. At Flavor Plate, we want to recognize this commitment, and help support this mission by offering a special discount on our services. Contact us for details.
