Websites are very important for restaurants because they allow people to find out all kinds of things about your restaurant. They can tell people where your restaurant is located, how long it’s been open, what kind of food it serves, and whether it’s good enough to eat there. You can also put up pictures of your menu so that people know what they’re ordering before they go.

How we created an online presence with Keobi Restaurant website.
The website for Keobi Restaurant is a great example of how a restaurant can use a website to promote itself. It’s a simple site with a few pages that show off the restaurant’s menu, photos of the food, and information on the staff.
The Keobi Restaurant is located in the heart of Albany, NY and it was built with a shoestring budget. This website was launched in the first week of the Covid-19 shutdown and has been thriving ever since. We collaborated with the restaurant owners to come up with a simple website to promote the restaurant during the difficult days of the Covid pandemic. Local media was able to link their platforms with the website. Had the site not available, the restaurant wouldn’t have been able to benefit from the generous promotions by the local media when they were trying to encourage people to shop and buy local.
Having a website will help you build brand awareness. People who visit your site will see what kind of food you serve, how much it costs, and where you are located. This gives people an idea of whether they should go to your restaurant or not.
