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?
Facebook Isn’t Enough
Many of the IR’s we talk to believe that having a Facebook page is enough to capture the 9 out of 10 people that search for a restaurant online. It’s NOT! Search engines like Google and Bing don’t normally find and return a restaurant Facebook page when a potential guest searches for a local restaurant. Seriously, I search online for restaurants about once a week, and I can’t remember ever receiving an FB page in the search results!

We know cost is always a concern when you run a business but having a restaurant website designed doesn’t have to cost you the shirt off your back! At WebDiner, it’s our mission to create custom restaurant web designs at an affordable price.
