Why Every Restaurant Must Have a Website

We’re constantly surprised by how hard it is to convince some restaurateurs that they must have a website! The internet isn’t just a passing fancy; it’s definitely here to stay. So why is it that less than half of independent restaurants (IR) in the US don’t have a website?
