13 Online Food and Restaurant Businesses Powered by Ecwid [2021]

7 min read

Maybe your restaurant was one of those brick-and-mortar hold-outs. The type of restaurant that kept it low-tech, and didn’t feel the need to take your business to the world wide web. Even so, we’re guessing that 2020 changed your mind. With the world turned upside-down, restaurants had to act quickly. Online ordering quickly became a vital lifeline to continuing operations. And just like that, a new era began.

According to Statista, the Online Food Delivery segment’s revenue exceeded $135 billion in 2020 and is expected to jump over $182 billion in 2024. If you’re still wondering if taking your food business online is worth it, take this as a sign. It’s time to make a move. And to drive the point home further, we’d like to take you on a (virtual) tour of Ecwid merchants who protected their businesses from the pandemic and have been rocking it in the restaurant ecommerce space.

Get inspired by some stellar examples from the online restaurant community, and join the club. We promise, with Ecwid it’s easy, pain-free, and will leave you with #noregrets.

Empower Nutrition

Founded in 2016, Empower Nutrition is a young business from New Jersey that strives for a simple goal: “to help everyone create a healthier lifestyle, one person, at a time.” Emedin Rivera (or Em) believes a healthy lifestyle starts by serving healthy food, fresh juices, refreshing smoothies, delicious Açaí bowls, and a wide range of nutrition supplements. Delicious and nutritious? What more could anyone ask for?

Klean

“I created Klean for two simple reasons: I love food, and I like to help people,” says Kiki Heinzer. As the daughter of a Mexican mother and a Texan father, culturally diverse food has been a core value of Kiki’s family and a part of her story from day one. So it makes sense that she eventually decided to start her own food business. Together with her husband (an exercise physiologist and personal trainer), they designed a menu, crossed their fingers, and started out in 2012. And as you can see, Klean is still growing!

Atomic Creamery

Located in Newport Beach, CA, Atomic Creamery has become a destination for friends, families, special occasions. It’s a place for gathering, and being true to yourself through the simple delight of ice cream—with a twist. Atomic Creamery’s ice cream is all powered by liquid nitrogen (hence the name!). Atomic’s philosophy is “keep it fresh, keep it premium, keep it unique.”

ANNA Cake Couture

The team at ANNA, a “cake couture” studio and cafe in Bristol, UK, has developed a range of contemporary cake designs to suit any occasion. From birthdays to baby showers, everything is hand-made with love and passion. Unbelievable decorations are at the heart of ANNA’s cakes. So head over to ANNA cozy cafe and help yourself to a delicious cuppa while you watch their team of cake designers at work, or order one of their masterpieces online and bring these delightful treats into your own home.

Fisherman’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar

Fishermen have the freshest ingredients, and this family restaurant located on a gorgeous pier in San Clemente, California is no exception. Here, guests can sample fresh omelets, crab, fish, oysters, pastas, clams, and an array of smaller snacks in the fading light of a California sunset. And finish the day with a glass of wine and a pleasant conversation.

Terrapin Restaurant

Josh Kroner, chef and owner of Terrapin Restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY, is committed to providing his guests with a delightfully unique dining experience. Whether a quiet dinner for two or a large family gathering, Terrapin will envelop you in their warm yet inviting environment.

On-Season Meal (OSM)

Born out of love of fine cuisine and fitness, On-Season Meal Prep started in the City of Fullerton, has become the exclusive health and diet food delivery meal prep services for busy people in Orange County and Los Angeles. FitChef Joe, Creator of On-Season Meals meal prep, developed a comprehensive healthy menu that ensures customers are motivated to achieve their goals and maintain a healthy lifestyle. “Healthy, convenient, tasty” is the philosophy behind this food business.

Cookie Dough Cafe

For Joan and Julia, it all started with a childhood love of cookie dough. They still remember the days spent in their kitchen, standing on chairs to watch their mother whip up a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Years later, the two sisters still cook with their mother—on professional equipment (and without the chairs). Each spoonful on the Cookie Dough Cafe menu is designed to take you back to your childhood and special times spent in the kitchen with family and friends.

Colorado Craft Butchers

Colorado Craft Butchers, run by Tyson Holzheimer, works with small farms and ranches to bridge the gap between farmer and consumer. They work hard to find you that special steak, chop, or offal you are looking for, and dry-age your meat, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any special requests!

Remington-Lott Farms

Remington-Lott Farms is a family-owned business located in Canton, Mississippi that offers dry-aged beef. Family-owned, this business is community-oriented and locally responsible. That’s why their beef is always hormone-free. The cattle graze and eat hay grown locally, on specific diets designed by a local nutritionist while still living on the pasture. “From Our Farm to Your Table,” Remington-Lott Farms owns the entire production process as opposed to big-box grocery chains that buy third-party products. If you’re in Mississippi and looking for a supplier of beef produced with integrity, you found it.

168 Go Fresh

Do you like Asian cuisine? Of course, you do! But have you ever tried to cook it yourself? Yes? Then you know how difficult it can be to find authentic ingredients. A regular supermarket can’t help you find what you’re looking for. That’s where 168 Go Fresh comes in to offer an array of authentic Asian ingredients for cooking a roast duck or marinated beef tendon. Don’t have time for cooking yourself? You can buy their ready-to-eat food and enjoy your Asian meal prep-free.

Ruggie’s Breakfast and Lunch

Ruggie’s is a local restaurant located in Harwich, Massachusetts, that serves sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, burgers, and chicken online and offline. “Excellent staff, great food, awesome prices, nice atmosphere,” that’s what customers say about Ruggie’s. For them, having breakfast at Ruggie’s has become the best kind of habit!

Creative Cheesecake Collection

Michiganian Pastry Chef Relle founded Creative Cheesecake Collection in December 2011. She started with making chocolate-covered strawberries, Oreo, pretzels, and later decided to focus her attention on cheesecake. Today Creative Cheesecake offers over 25 flavors of fresh homemade cheesecakes. At 29, Relle is a mother of two and a successful business owner, inspired by what she does and looking confidently to the future.
