Growing together

We continue to build the digital presence for a restaurant group that won't stop serving up restaurant concepts. Initially partnering with the Thunderdome group to build the Currito website in 2013 – Ample has since designed, written, developed and maintained the sites for each of their subsequent brands. Today they have 7 concepts with close to 35 locations nationwide and they're growing. Ample moves forward with them through redesigns, email marketing, nutritional calculating and a whole lot more.

Cooking up sites to order

Bakersfield Website

Bakersfield is serving up that authentic Mexican street fare, a warm atmosphere, and the twangy sounds of a steel guitar. This site fits the personality of the restaurant with a design that is casual and authentic, simple and understated.

Maplewood Website

Maplewood is bright, open and focused more on the corporate crowd. It showcases a destination with the space, menu and decor that would make a great place to chat with a client or host a business meeting. Like all the Thunderdome sites, Maplewood features an easy way to book private events or place a catering order.

Skills

Strategy

It started with Currito. How to push their design into the online space and build it to grow—then it was email marketing, a rewards program and online ordering. There's more to come.

Development

Restaurants have specific development needs and Thunderdome has six different concepts. From the menu access and it's frequent updates to the nutrition calculator and all its complexity—Ample has provided the support they need.

UX

Private events required something special. We had to create an intuitive solution that would work for multiple restaurant concepts in multiple cities (each of varying size and design). It took some focused understanding of design and user-flow.

Krueger's Website

Krueger's is old school cool. It serves house ground meats served on wooden cutting boards. And you can enjoy it from the only outdoor rooftop dining option in the historic neghborhood it calls home. The website plays up the simple old world charm, with a blend of imagery and illustration.

CityBird Website

CityBird serves up fried chicken tenders to go. This place is made to service the walking traffic taking lunch to the park or grabbing a little sustanance before they Uber home. The site keeps is simple and quick with a menu-focused clean design.
