    Why Every Restaurant Needs a Website

    Why Every Restaurant Needs a Website

    In today's internet-driven digital age, a strong online presence is essential for any business. Yet, surprisingly, many restaurants and food-focused operations still operate without a dedicated website. By doing so, they unwittingly limit their potential reach and allow others to shape their brand's perception online. In this episode, I hope to convince you of why it's important to have a website even if you're utilizing social media.

Great insight for me

I've been listening to several of your podcasts in the morning from time to time. As a Food Management major, it's very helpful to have a better idea and understanding about the industry before entering it. I'd highly reccomend listening to anyone getting into the food industry or already apart of it.
