Wix.com Ltd., a leading global web development platform, announced the launch of Wix Restaurants, a revolutionary all-in-one DIY solution that enables restaurant owners to build and manage their business online, commission-free. Wix Restaurants is the first true DIY online ordering platform of its kind, providing seamless online and mobile experiences for restaurant customers, freeing business owners from relying on commission-based food ordering marketplaces, which charge up to 15 percent of each transaction, and costly tailored web platforms, which can cost thousands of dollars.

Repeat customers comprise over 60 percent of sales to quick service, fast-casual, casual dining, and family dining restaurants and over 50 percent to fine dining restaurants. By providing a complete food ordering solution on a restaurants' website and eliminating the reliance on commission-based marketplaces for search and discovery that is not needed by repeat customers, Wix Restaurants changes the economics for business owners.

Wix Restaurants is a complete product suite designed to address the unique needs of restaurants online:

  • Beautiful online menus that can be easily customized and added to a restaurant’s Wix website and Facebook business page.
  • Commission-free online ordering that enables restaurants to take orders from customers directly from their website and accept online payments with integrations to 16 leading payment processors including PayPal, Stripe, and Authorize.net.
  • Enhanced customer payment options including on-site payments, split payments and fast checkout for return customers.
  • Customer management and communications through Wix ShoutOut for integrated e-mail and social marketing, while maintaining full control over contacts and interactions.
  • Full mobile solution including mobile websites and menus, mobile ordering and mobile payments.
  • Tailored website templates specifically built for restaurants.

“Wix remains committed to our goal of providing business owners and professionals a complete online solution for launching and managing the business of their dreams,” says Avishai Avrahami, co-founder and CEO of Wix. “Wix Restaurants is our latest addition of vertical software applications, enabling restaurant owners to manage every aspect of their business, from creating a stunning website and marketing to customers to taking orders online and managing their business workflow.”

In this increasingly digital age, online and mobile ordering is a rapidly growing trend, and every restaurant needs a professional online ordering service to attract new customers and continually engage loyal customers with a complete online experience.

“We created Wix Restaurants so that restaurants of all sizes can grow their business with a professional and affordable online solution,” adds Yoav Amit, head of Wix Restaurants. “Now any restaurant can truly own their customers from the discovery stage through the checkout process, while keeping customer experience a priority.”
