Website Case Study - Stooks Cafe
Stooks, is a new restaurant opening in January 2012 at Newbridge Nurseries. Stooks aims to create a memorable dining experience unlike any other found in a Garden Centre.
When we were approached by Stooks they were keen to build awareness of their restaurant opening and advertise job vacancies online asap. We offered Stooks a temporary website which was based on a preferred early design and which met the requirements for the temporary site.
After the temporary site was placed on the internet we continued design work on the final site which will be launching in December. The final site will include an events listing system, display of Stooks menu's including a display of specially selected featured dishes. Pages for featured dishes will include recipes for the dishes and can include embedded YouTube videos demonstrating the recipe.
The website will be search engine optimised for terms including, 'Restaurant in Horsham'. The website uses Facebook Like buttons to promote events at Stooks. Each event has its own unique page allowing users to like an event which would then result in an image of the event, a description of the event and a link back to the event page on the users Facebook wall. Using social media in this way is a fantastic way to promote restaurant events.
