App Development, Web Design & Product Photography for Carlisle’s very own little taste of Mexico.
The opening of El Escapar brought a refreshing heat to Carlisle city with its deliciously fresh cuisine and daring colourful look. However, like every new business, they were experiencing some teething problems.
The double yellow lines outside their premises proved to be an obstacle. This lack of parking would usually increase over-the-phone orders. However, the beauty of El Escapar is how independent Jamie is with the business. Already Jamie was greeting the customers, preparing, cooking, and packing orders – impressive! Even super-human Jamie needed to work out an alternative way for customers to order their food. Jamie knew he needed to take action and fix this issue before it impacted El Escapar’s growing success.
Another cool aspect of El Escapar is its pop-up events that had great potential but lacked substantial online advertising. It became more apparent that the El Escaper needed a Click & Collect service and an established online presence to showcase their upcoming events and their menus.
Jamie came to us seeking a solution, and of course, we had it!
Our team was so excited to put our heads together and work out how we could help Jamie. A wave of enthusiasm crashed through our office when we examined the brand, knowing it was a colourful and exciting project! We love supporting smaller local businesses, especially during a time that is impacting the food industry. We wanted to do all in our power to make this a time of prosperity for the hospitality community.
We examined larger corporations and were inspired to scale down an idea that would allow these smaller food outlets to compete with the overall food sector. We love to see all business thriving and believe that various sizes and cuisine is necessary to create a diversely delicious food scene in our city!
The team designed a website to give the business the online presence that they needed to flourish fully. It was vital to create a website that would allow customers to pre-order their food, meaning Jamie could offer a Click-and-Collect service.
El Escapar’s very own bespoke website was born, inclusive of an E-Commerce online ordering system, social media updates, and up to date menus. These new changes would allow customers to order from the menu and collect at a specific time.
Here is what Jamie had to say:
“As well as offering a quality product at a great price all staff were very helpful by suggesting different ways to maximise the effectiveness of the website. The “click and collect” application, was an idea they brought to the table and will really help boost sales. Overall a Fantastic company and I would highly recommend!”
