Organic food Meal Delivery System
Zulu Shack Creative was given the task to create a Meal Delivery System, that would do more than just your run of the mill WordPress solution. Farm to Fork Meals expressed their goal to have a system that will allow admin users to create menus, manage users, create discounts and promote their organic meal delivery in a competitive South Florida market.
Zulu Shack Creative developers enjoyed the tasks given and created an awesome system that checked all the boxes Farm to Fork Meals were after. Users can easily sign up with the site, pick a meal plan, customize plans and add more meals on a week to week basis. Admin Users are able to build meals, meal plans, manage cut off times, run reports, manage user accounts, track issues to name a few. The system proved to be a solid success, with sales continually growing, we are happy to see Farm to Fork Meals grow from strength to strength.
Healthy clean and delicious code.
nopCommerce is a powerful open source .net cart solution that allows users to either use one of their pre-defined templates for their new store or create custom solutions on the framework it provides. Although the Farm to Fork Meals solution was a bit more involved than a normal cart, we knew and were confident we could create custom plugins within the .net and nop framework. This indeed, proved to be the case.

Like any good online business you need a good online presence, this involves Social and SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Farm to Fork Meals chose to go in house for their SEO, that being said, Zulu Shack Creative has always been on hand with their solution as a whole and has helped from a Social stand point on Facebook, promoting paid and organic marketing efforts.
