We’re Here to Help You

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 can help:

Purchasing a Domain Name

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.

Redirecting an Existing Domain Name

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.

Email Service

If you already have email set up at your domain name (ex. info@yourrestaurant.com), we’ll work with you to transfer your current setup, and avoid any interruption in your email service. If you need email, we can advise you on email service providers.

Menu Management

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.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Every Flavor Plate website is automatically set up to meet your restaurant’s basic SEO needs. To fully optimize your website for search, you’ll need to make some custom adjustments and consider a more comprehensive SEO strategy. We can help.

Custom Needs

Every restaurant website shares certain things in common. 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, and we’ll also be the first to suggest an alternative if Flavor Plate is unable to meet them.
