Sociavore, a company enabling restaurants to better their guests’ online experience, today announced the launch of its new website builder and guest management platform that will further transform online guest experiences.

Developed exclusively for restaurants, the new multi-tier product is an evolution of Sociavore’s full-serve product offering and can support restaurants of all sizes and stages from startup restaurants to multi-concept restaurant groups. The new product is the result of the unique insights acquired from working intimately with over 100 restaurant clients since 2013, all focused on creating a product that would enable restaurants to grow revenue through their online guest experiences.

“A restaurant’s website experience is the new front door for restaurants. If you can’t convey your guest experience online, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find another opportunity to do so, ” said Sociavore’s CEO, Thusenth Dhavaloganathan. “You can quickly find yourself paying multiple interloping parties between you and the guest. Up until now, the cost, skillset, and time required to pull together a great restaurant experience online was very high, so we built a set of tools to bring it all together effectively and put it in reach for all restaurants.”

The new website platform allows restaurants to easily build a fully-customized, professional restaurant website in minutes through the use of expertly crafted themes, simple drag and drop tools, smart third-party integrations and many restaurant-centric features. Platform features include:

  • Instagram-powered restaurant website – A smart integration with Instagram allows a restaurant to use its Instagram profile to create a beautiful and always up-to-date website quickly.
  • Guestbox – A unified messaging inbox and customer relationship management tool allows restaurants to develop meaningful relationships with their customers and keep their entire teams on the same page.
  • Sociavore Reservations – Restaurants can streamline their online reservation processes while maintaining their existing operations. Sociavore also seamlessly integrates with popular electronic reservation book (ERB) software such as Tock, Resy, OpenTable, and Yelp Reservations.
  • Themes – With Sociavore, restaurants can choose an expertly crafted theme. Themes automatically update to the latest version so restaurants are never stuck on a theme with bugs and old features. Sociavore is focused on crafting dozens of beautiful themes and can also support fully custom designs and themes from third-party design & development agencies.

“The launch of our new platform at affordable price points positions Sociavore to continue its global expansion,” continued Dhavaloganathan. “We’re looking forward to helping even more restaurants succeed.”
