Project Notes:

Palmetto Grill and Bakery of Mint Hill, NC opened their doors to the residents of Mint Hill, NC early summer of 2011, but one thing was missing - a website, so they could build awareness, share their restaurant menu online, post specials for breakfast, lunch and dinner, an easy way for people to locate and contact them.

I'm a frequent customer of Palmetto Grill & Bakery, enjoy the atmosphere and food. Having visited so often in the short period of time they've been open - I had a good idea of what I wanted to design for them when they asked me too. The theme of palm trees and tiki gods was an easy choice to go with, because of the decór that can bee seen throughout the restaurant.

Working on a limited budget, I worked up a design concept and presented it to them to review and we were off and rolling in no time developing the HTML and CSS styles. First on our plate was to develop some CSS to deliver the menu items in a way that was easy for the reader to understand and easy for Palmetto Grill to edit using PageCraftCMS. Once we had the menus developed we focused on developing the site's design and code for the remaining site pages. We also developed a news / blog for the site that is used to power the SPECIALS section of the site, making it easy for Palmetto Grill to build more content for their site, easy for readers to get to the information they're looking for and easy for Palmetto Grill to share using social netowrks.

Palmetto Grill & Bakery is located in Mint Hill, NC. Drop by the food is great and the prices are exceptional for the food quality.

Client Testimonial:

I have been working with Michael for about three months now.  We met at my restaurant, he is a regular.  I was looking to put together a web site and I didn’t even realize Michael did this for a living.  We got to talking and before we knew it I had hired him to design and produce my web page for Palmetto Grill & bakery in Mint Hill.  I was beyond pleased with the final product.  Initially, Michael had taken the time to talk with me and find out what my goals were with the restaurant and how we could achieve these goals through the web site.  From the design work to the overall product including the support, I am very pleased to say that I had found the right guy / company to produce my web site. I continue to get high marks regarding our web site from our customers.  They find it useful, easy to navigate through and interesting (great graphics depicting our concept and tropical theme).  My advice in pursuing a web master would be to START with Michael Habenicht of Kaleidoscopic Design and you will save yourself time AND money.
