“As Marcus Restaurant Group continues to grow, we needed to create a website that accommodated all our unique and creative restaurant concepts around the U.S., in one easy to navigate place. Our design focused on large, colorful images of our creative food concepts, and bright, vibrant boxes highlighting each of our restaurant brands. Our new website not only includes information on each of our restaurants, but also information on special events and our popular ‘Straight to Your Plate’ program, which highlights a monthly local ingredient and purveyors and suppliers who are doing an outstanding job in sourcing unique and interesting foods. Guests and customers really love learning about the purveyors, the history of their business and the diverse dishes our chefs create, and now we are able to better share those stories on our new website,” said Peggy Williams-Smith, vice president of food and beverage.
Williams-Smith added, “The ‘Straight to Your Plate’ program has been very successful among guests and shows that hotel restaurants are real players in the culinary scene. The program is a win for all – it provides a perfect combination of great food with premium ingredients, mixed with talented chefs, wonderful restaurants and stellar Wisconsin-based purveyors.”
