YardBird Restaurant’s Website Is Absolutely Mouth-watering!

Working on food websites is always such a treat for us-literally.  We get to stare at food all day.  What’s better than that?!?  And working on YardBird was no different, except for the fact that the site made us really bummed-in that we couldn’t be stuffing our faces with their food at that very moment.

image

Owner, and master of the meals, Wendell, was one of our 10-Week Course Attendees this last session.  He wanted to create his restaurant website, and was looking for some guidance. When he told us of his vision, we thought that the LOVE theme could offer the simplicity and class he was going for.

image

Everything was cake after that!  Wendell had some incredible food imagery–PICTURES THAT HE TOOK ON HIS PHONE!  Can you believe it?!?!  We certainly couldn’t!  They looked professionally shot. We worked with him to build out a fun, easy to navigate website with splashes of his gorgeous photos throughout.

image

Wendell created a blog through the SquareHook blogging feature. He wanted to post the latest dishes he was creating/dabbling for the menu.  The images alone will get you to click to read more. Seriously, I’m wiping the saliva forming at my mouth as I type this post.

image

We showed him how to integrate a gallery so he could show off his main entrées, appetizers, and desserts so people could find out more.  What is more helpful in your order-making-decision at a restaurant than seeing food come out of the kitchen door?  Having these food options on his site, will make the ordering process that much faster at YardBird, because people could already know what they want-before they even come in for a meal.  Pictures do speak a thousand words, after all.

The SquareHook drag and drop interface made it easy for Wendell to create an attractive menu page.  Adding columns and rows with the click of a button allowed him the ease of adding in his dishes.

We are so proud of Wendell and the work he put into his website!  We enjoyed helping him throughout his web building experience-he did a great job. It looks good enough to eat!  We can’t wait for his restaurant to open. We have big eating plans when it does!  If you’re looking to build a website and need a little hand-holding or recommendations, that’s what we’re here for.  Contact us to find out how you can build the best mobile website out there!

Finding the Perfect Theme For YOUR WEBSITE

We’ve been doing a bit of website inventory as of late, and took notice how versatile our themes truly are!

Here are 4 VERY DIFFERENT websites, all selling/promoting/advertising/showcasing something completely unique.  But they have one thing in common: they used the SAME THEME as their base!

All of these sites had different motives, a different user experience, and a special look-all their own.  We certainly find ourselves bragging that any one of our themes could work for you.  We have even taken the time to make recommendations on templates, depending on what your website represents, or a look you may be going for.

We let you know what a template is capable of, so you can get a better idea of what would work perfect for your website!  We also tagged each theme with a search functionality, so if you can’t quite decide what you’re going for-that may help narrow it down for you. 🙂

If you have a certain template you like, but can’t quite envision what it could turn into, contact us.  We’d be more than happy to help you get a better idea about what your site could transform into.

This year, Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum Top 25 Under Five spotlighted two types of startups, with awards being presented to companies in revenue, and pre-revenue startups.

Their new emphasis highlighted Utah’s outstanding entrepreneur community with recognition for new ideas as well as companies who are proving a sustainable model with incoming revenue.

25 Under 5 spotlights outstanding Utah entrepreneurs and emerging companies from across the state that are under 5 years old. Award recipients were recognized at the Award Ceremony Luncheon this afternoon.

UVEF’s Top 25 Under Five Awards have recognized the development of over 200 individuals and companies, including Utah success stories like Boostability (voted #1 today) and Omniture among many others.

2014 Applicants were judged on several factors including revenue and job creation. This year they included a new category to recognize pre-revenue startups, as well.

We are so thrilled and flattered to be honored amongst 24 other fantastic companies based here in Utah! We were voted in at #23 with an additional 10 businesses to watch out for.  We were in good company! But we will be working to move up that ranking over 2014.

Get a Free Website: Basin Industries Did!

Our free website promotion has been a big hit for local small business owners.  Why?  Because you can get a great looking site that functions like an expensive custom-programmed site.   As we often say, “YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL. YOU DESERVE IT ALL.”

image

Basin Industries had a pretty basic Wix website, but they were unhappy with the look and feel, so they contacted us.  Their needs were simple, and we knew that using the DODGEBALL template would suite their needs great!

image

Our editor made it super easy for them to move their imagery and content around, especially with our new rows/columns functionality.  You can select arrows to move right or left and up or down to switch out square placement.

image

With our easy to edit page editor, they can go in and add additional metals to their Metals Page and tweak information, restyle the color boxes (if their company colors change) and edit or add content.

On their contact page, they wanted to make sure both locations were listed with maps to both.  SquareHook allows anyone to add Google Maps, by adding a ‘square.’

These were great customers and we were sure pleased with the clean look and feel we achieved, while keeping the requirements within the promotional website specs.

Contact us if you would be interested in getting in on our free website promotion.  We are so happy to help out any and all of our local business owners.
