GoDaddy Helps US Food Customers Create Beautiful Digital Identities Website Builder Helping Businesses ‘Get Found’ Online

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Oct. 23, 2013) – GoDaddy, the Web’s top platform for small businesses, is now helping US Foods customers leverage technology to operate more efficiently. The partnership is being announced at today’s Food Fanatics Live event in Los Angeles. A major benefit for US Foods customers is access to tools like GoDaddy’s Website Builder and Locu Menu Manager, which make it easy to quickly create a beautiful digital identity without a big budget or technical expertise.

“GoDaddy is making it super simple for anyone to leverage the power of the Internet,” said GoDaddy General Manager 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 leading distributor, US Foods provides products and business solutions to more than 200,000 customers, including independent and multi-unit restaurants, hospitals and schools across the United States. GoDaddy’s Website Builder provides hundreds of customizable, professional designs and many ways to evolve a website’s appearance that give the business owners complete control of their digital identity. Locu technology enables website owners to manage and update menus automatically.

“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.”

In addition to menus, Locu reaches more than 200-million consumers per month through its partnerships with Yelp,, Foursquare, TripAdvisor and Facebook, which enhances the restaurants exposure to new customers who often search for local restaurants from their mobile phone.

GoDaddy serves more than 12 million customers worldwide, mostly small businesses looking to have a strong online presence without devoting personnel or big budgets to make it happen.

“We exist to help small business of all shapes and sizes kick ass online and that’s what we’re doing for US Foods,” said Bob Lund, SVP Distribution Channels at GoDaddy.
