What is the best food preparation service

13 online food and restaurant companies powered by Ecwid [2021]

Perhaps your restaurant was one of those stationary occasions. The kind of restaurant that kept it low tech and didn't feel the need to get your business on the world wide web. Even so, we guess 2020 changed your mind. With the world upside down, restaurants had to act quickly. Online ordering quickly became an important lifeline for business continuity. And just like that, a new era began.

According to Statista, sales of the Online Food Delivery segment surpassed $ 135 billion in 2020 and is projected to skip $ 182 billion in 2024. If you're still wondering whether it's worth getting your grocery store online, take that as a sign. It's time to take a step. And to drive the point further home, we'd like you on a (virtual) tour of Ecwid retailers who protected their stores from the pandemic and rocked the restaurant's e-commerce section.

Take inspiration from some great examples from the online restaurant community and join the club. We promise it's easy, painless, and easy with Ecwid, and it will leave you with #noregrets.
