Project Description

Restaurantware is a leading manufacturers and distributors of eco-friendly, high-end disposable tableware. Being in the B2B space, they had complex backend systems which they had developed in-house to help them scale quickly and to deliver  great customer experience in terms of fulfilment. They realised that their website was waiting for an upgrade as well and had no second thoughts to keep pushing them forward and ahead.

When BigCommerce came up with the new customizable theme framework called Stencil, Restaurantware took the opportunity to revamp their website and move to a modern, mobile friendly, highly customizable website.  As part of this project, Restaurantware wanted to reorganize their products, make the website more SEO friendly with category specific landing pages, utilize the Facets/filters to deliver smooth product discovery experience, and be more mobile friendly.
