GoDaddy has announced a partnership with US Foods that it said helps the company's customers leverage technology to operate more efficiently, with access to tools like GoDaddy's Website Builder and Locu Menu Manager.

"GoDaddy is making it super simple for anyone to leverage the power of the Internet," said GoDaddy General Manager of Presence and Commerce Raj Mukherjee. "Without a website, it's difficult, if not impossible, to compete in business. Website Builder and Locu give restaurant owners exactly what they need to create a full-featured website in a matter of minutes."

As a food company and distributor, US Foods provides products and business solutions to more than 200,000 customers, including independent and multiunit restaurants, hospitals and schools across the United States. GoDaddy's Website Builder provides customizable designs that give the business owners complete control of their digital identity, the announcement said.

Locu technology enables website owners to manage and update menus automatically. In addition to menus, Locu reaches more than 200 million consumers per month through its partnerships with Yelp, YP.com, Foursquare, TripAdvisor and Facebook, which enhances the restaurants' exposure to new customers who often search for local restaurants from their mobile phone, the announcement said.

"Each day restaurant operators juggle a number of duties just to keep their businesses running smoothly and dedicating a huge amount of time to creating a website isn't something many have the time or energy to do," said Jim Osborne, vice president of e-commerce for US Foods. "GoDaddy and Locu brought a great solution to our customers that allow them to have a great looking website that automatically updates as they change their menus so they can focus on their day-to-day business."

    It's good to see that there is an increased understanding of the need for restaurants to establish and maintain their online branding to include their menus. Restaurant menus are the primary marketing device for their businesses and it is amazing to see how many restaurants have incorrect menus online or known at all. OpenMenu is also a very good solution for maintaining a restaurant menu online and it is free to set up and maintain. OpenMenu also includes a menu tab for Facebook that is also free and when linked to yourTwitter account it will automatically update your followers when the menu is updated. Most importantly, OpenMenu integrates with existing websites very effectively.
