Brandibble can best be described as a “Shopify for restaurants.” We offer a fully-customizable platform for restaurant websites with e-commerce (online ordering, catering, etc.) fully baked in, allowing restaurants to offer a very sophisticated website & online ordering experience to their customers. You can see many examples of Brandibble-powered sites on our website (www.brandibble.co). Over the next 12-18 months, we’ll be extending the platform in meaningful ways to solve more problems for restaurant operators, as well as opening up the platform to 3rd party frontend developers (similar to WordPress and Shopify), which is a big part of our long-term growth strategy. We believe there’s a huge opportunity to make great restaurant software that’s both simple and beautiful, which would be highly differentiated.
