🚨Problem

Restaurant owners are the biggest group of business owners in the United States.

Most of them started by working in restaurants and saved up for years to pursue their own American dream.

They are great people, working hard to support their families and provide amazing experiences.

But they're struggling to survive. Corporations are crushing them using scale and advanced technology.

Corporations like GrubHub are exploiting them by stealing their customers and destroying their profits with crazy fees.

This is their darkest time. If they don't find a way to survive, they will all go out of business.

✅ Solution

Owner.com’s mission is to help local business owners survive by leveling the playing field – by giving them an all-in-one solution to take back control of their business and manage their online presence. We power everything from their website to their online ordering system to their email marketing automation to their reputation management and more.

Restaurant owners use it to get their customers to order directly from them and to have full control over their customer relationships, saving them thousands each month in fees and helping them drive massive sales increases.
