You know the scenario: You feel like ordering in, but your options are limited because you're not sure which places offer take-out, and even if you did, you don't have the menu and wouldn't know what to order. This is where ordertogomenus.com comes in.
Jason Denison, a self-taught Webmaster, got tired of the standard to-go pizza and Asian fare and createdordertogomenus.com, which features menus from Memphis-area restaurants that offer take-out. So far, the site includes menus from more than 80 restaurants, grouped by cuisine, including American (Huey's, Half Shell, O'Charley's), Mexican (El Mezcal, On the Border, Abuelo's), and Italian (Macaroni Grill, Memphis Pizza Café).
"I do most of my work from home, and I work a lot, which means I have little time and order out quite a bit," Denison explains. He started with about 75 menus from restaurants around town. That was the easy part. He then had to type up every single menu to fit into the site's format. Although some restaurants have caught on to the free service Denison provides, he still gathers a lot of the menus himself as he slowly expands the site.
"I spend many, many hours on this, but I felt that Memphis needed a service like this," Denison says. "I would like to see it spread to other cities so that locals as well as people from out of town could use it."
Although Denison is currently not making any profit from the site, he feels strongly about continuing to offer it as a free service to both restaurateurs and customers.
"I don't plan to ever charge for the service, but I do hope that it'll eventually grow and possibly attract more advertisers," Denison says.
