One cafe owner serving up delicious food to local customers found a simple solution to serve up safely during the pandemic. Helping her make more money by selling online and avoiding all the unnecessary fees on her sales. But there were a few hiccups before she got there…
The biggest one facing most small businesses today: Covid-19. How do you run a restaurant when people aren’t allowed to come in? And how do you futureproof your restaurant for whatever’s next?
Studio Store gave Louise her own apps and websites with all the features she needed, including a simple ordering system that customers enjoy using. No commission on her orders meant she could also keep more of her hard-earned profits.
Louise has spent 8 years running pubs, restaurants and cafes, but after Covid she realised quickly that she needed to move her whole business model fast. “We have a strong customer base, but without them being allowed to walk in and order food and drinks and enjoy themselves, we had to move our business model online."
Searching for solutions only led to more confusion, "I looked online at the many businesses on Google that offer website building, app development, QR codes, the products available all sounded great, but I have little development experience.” It’s that lack of knowledge that stops so many businesses taking the action that could save them.
Like so many others, Louise asks, “And how do I know it's right for my business in these uncertain times?”
“At one of my pubs, we tried to get our own online ordering system going, but we quickly found that the customers could not order what they wanted”
This chaotic ordering process was not just affecting customers, but harming profits - “we were losing more money than we were making due to the ‘system’ not being fit for purpose.”
Louise was relieved that our website made her feel in control - especially with no commission on her sales.
“The website and app built by Builder.ai is very professional looking, the customers can order easily without any of the gimmicks you see on other apps and it works”
Louise was also impressed by our aftercare, “Some website providers just sell you a site, and then forget you.”
