Having served the foodservice industry online with a full scale e-commerce website for over 4 years now, Mission Restaurant Supply felt the need to upgrade their website to keep up with today’s technology and increasingly savvy shoppers.
The improved website is sure to keep shoppers happy with new features such as the ability to see their order history, sort products, and view several or all items at once in a particular category. Some enhanced features include order tracking online, easier navigation, the ability to calculate shipping cost on the product page, and faster loading pages. Features will continually be added to ensure customers enjoy their shopping experience.
The new website was designed and built by David Limon, Fannie Lewis, and Chris Collins using Miva Merchant 5.5 on a MySQL database. Through the use of CSS, the website is slim in size, keeping search engines happy; and coding is continually being compressed for optimal performance. In addition, credit needs to be given to several O’Reilly Media books, which were extremely handy in building the new website.
Mission Restaurant Supply’s sales force includes: three showrooms in Texas (Austin, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio), a bid and contract department, an outside sales team, and a full scale e-commerce website. Other divisions include parts sales, leasing, service (within a 75 mile radius of each showroom) and the newly acquired metal fabrication shop, Mission Metal Fabricators.
Mission Restaurant Supply was ranked #20 in the nation on Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Magazine in 2008 (up from #26 in 2007) and continues to grow in the ranks as they expand their services. Whether shopping online or visiting a showroom, Mission Restaurant Supply continues to be a foodservice industry powerhouse.
