And the Facebook fan page look and feel. The good think about this is the many backlinks you get to the main site and the ability to interact closely (the social way) with customers if this is of any interest – e.g. competitions, giveaways, information about events etc.
Restaurant template with advanced custom calendar and event system
Feast comes with a custom calendar with single day, multi day and recurring events. There is a countdown timer widget that catches the eye. Get people to your events.
Manage bookings from your website
The bookings script just as the calendar is integrated into the theme, and ready to roll. The focus of the script is easy management and proper communication with your guests.
One of the worst thing that can happen is to have booked a table and not knowing what happens next. For that reason the theme vendor created a complete message system with the bookings manager to keep guests up to date with the status of the booking.
When selected, Feast will send a reminder to guests 48 hours before their booking reminding them of their booking and so assist to decrease your no-shows.
