Are restaurants using website builders like Wix and Squarespace to create their websites?

There are a lot of very good inexpensive website builders these days, and I don't think there's one that dominates the industry. 

What we see at ChowNow is five to 10 different providers, including Wix, Squarespace, and GoDaddy. There are a couple others that are specific to restaurants that we see—we've partnered with a company called Fisherman that specializes in restaurant websites. 

There’s a few others that specialize in restaurant websites. On the other hand, the Wixes and Squarespaces and GoDaddies of the world have all created specific website builders for restaurants, so they've verticalized their offering with features designed for  restaurants.

WordPress is still around. We see them often in WordPress templates. I don't think we've seen a massive shift in the last two or three years. What we don't see very often are custom websites. Typically the budget that restaurants put aside for websites is in the $20 to $80 a month range, which makes WordPress an affordable option.
