Demos’ Restaurants

Delicious Web Goodness

Working with the Demos family is as exciting as sinking your teeth into any of their mouth-watering dishes. They have built a tradition of providing excellent, homemade food at an affordable price, and needed a new website to reflect their quality image and brand experience.

The objective here was simple yet challenging: Create a website as delicious as their food. We wanted this to be more than just your typical restaurant website. Nutrition information, custom food menus, e-newsletter integration via MyEmma, custom e-commerce controls and original Pinterest and Facebook style “pin-board” and “timeline” interior page template designs made the site unique.

We ended up customizing an ASP.net based content management system called Sitefinity (by Telerik) to allow them to manage all pages, menu items, sell gift cards online via the Authorize.net payment gateway and have a nice custom news page, blog, lunch specials calendar and mini-HR management system to recruit future employees.

In order to get to a top notch web design, we had to think through content and information architecture. We sketched out a full site map, documented a content plan in collaboration with the client to assist with messaging, wrote copy in advance, and wire framed out every page before moving into the design phase.

As mentioned above, this is a custom web design by Cabedge creatives and a custom coding job by Atiba programmers using the Sitefinity CMS. Sitefinity featured a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor, and this particular job for Demos’ allows them to manage customer feedback submissions, a lunch specials calendar, all food menu items, news, blog, prospective employee resume submissions and gift card orders all in one place.
