Inverclyde Chamber of Commerce member, The Cottage Café Bistro has launched its new website to support its ongoing growth and development.
Sister owners, Janine Brennan and Yvonne Malloy took over the business two years ago which is based at Ladyburn Business Park at Pottery Street in Greenock.
The business has since enjoyed a successful transition online as a result of Covid-19, with The Cottage utilising Just Eat and other platforms to ensure it continues to grow its trade.
With the current public health restrictions forcing the restaurant to close, the bistro is currently operating as a takeaway and delivery service, offering a range of food from breakfasts and main meals to sandwiches, baked potatoes and afternoon teas.
The new website now enables the business to take online orders, giving the platform an increased functionality to accept orders direct to cut on referral fees to third parties.
Reflecting on the new launch, Yvonne said: “It is fantastic to be able to launch and share our new website with our customers and fellow Chamber members.
“We have spent considerable time designing the site to ensure it represents our brand as well as how the website flows, which has led to a further increase in customers ordering direct.
“Naturally, the pandemic forced us to embrace new ways of generating income for the bistro and we’ve been delighted by the popularity of our online ordering and delivery services.”
The Cottage was able to call on local expertise for the new site, with fellow Chamber members Tweetiepie Media in Greenock responsible for building the site and Gourock photographer Murray McMillan providing imagery. App developers Bonapp&eat provided the ordering platform.
Co-owner Janine added: “All of the people that have supported the new website have been fantastic and we’d like to thank them for their expertise and professionalism – we are delighted by the result and investment.
“We are firm supporters of supporting fellow local businesses and we invite all Inverclyde residents to try The Cottage Café Bistro in the future.”
