OrderBrain Restaurant Website Generator

Matthew Knapper 843 Views http://orderbrain.com/

Squarespace makes great looking websites for almost everyone, however they are missing a major market, restaurants. There are many ways for restaurants to put their menu and info online such as yelp and AllMenus, but those services benefit the platform much more than they benefit the restaurant. Wix has some things “specifically” for restaurants, but all they really did was change their copy from their retail stuff. We want to create a simple, attractive, and modern way for the restaurant to keep all of their information and menu online, and current. To do this we will create a online website build catered (pun intended) specifically for restaurants. We already even have a great domain that restaurants can use for free EatSo.me/<restaurant name>

Impact

Restaurants will benefit by having a website builder simplified and catered specifically for them. Consumers will benefit by being able to access up to date menus that look great on their phones. I will benefit by having a new funnel to sell our online ordering software.

What I Will Do With $5,000

We will use the money to build the website generator. We plan to build the generator with Python/Django and a little bit of AngularJS magic. Our restaurant themes will rely heavily on custom bootstrap themes to look modern and be mobile friendly. We plan on hosting everything on Heroku.
