Sage Restaurant Concepts is one of Denver’s most acclaimed restaurant groups, with concepts such as Kachina Cantina, The Corner Office and Urban Farmer earning praise and loyal followings across the city. However, before the pandemic, its digital presence was mired with issues. The design of its websites was outdated, and so was the tech. Everything was built on Wordpress, and changes to things like menus needed to go through an outside developer, turning operations into a slog.
BentoBox put control of its brands and its websites in the restaurant's hands — while also providing the ordering tools that would soon prove essential for survival.

The beautiful design of Sage’s new websites gave the restaurants a digital presence it was proud of. With increased sharing on other marketing channels, plus built-in SEO capabilities, it quickly enjoyed a massive uptick in web traffic.
The increased visibility has helped with branding and foot traffic, but Sage has also parlayed it into high-margin revenue by adding direct online ordering to its websites. This feature proved essential during COVID-19, and has continued to drive strong revenue in the months since.
"We could not have gone through the pandemic without BentoBox," said Heather Dratler, the company’s Vice President of Marketing. “It’s given us the ability to take our digital guest experience to the next level."
BentoBox has been a life saver. It's super easy to update and really easy to push live. Everything about it is easy.
