🖥 Staff Backend Engineer
Posted on Thursday, April 13, 2023
Restaurant owners are one of the largest groups of small business owners in the world. These are incredibly hardworking individuals; many of them started as dishwashers, servers and cooks, and saved up for years to pursue their dream of being an owner one day.
But it is a challenging business, made even more complicated recently by the recent shift to a digital landscape. There is immense competition from 3rd party delivery tech companies who are stealing restaurants’ customers and charging exorbitant fees. Additionally, massive restaurant corporations are crushing independents using scale, advanced technology, and expansive marketing budgets.
Owner.com’s mission is to help local business owners survive by leveling the playing field – by giving them an all-in-one solution to take back control of their business and truly own their online presence. The Owner platform powers everything from their SEO-optimized website to their online ordering system, while providing powerful email marketing and loyalty programs, reputation management, recruiting solutions, and more.
With Owner.com restaurant owners have full control over their customer relationships and data, saving them thousands each month in fees and helping them drive a massive increase in sales.
