Restaurant SEO Case Study - Benjyehuda

How restaurants can leverage SEO Marketing: The first page of search results is prime real estate for driving new diners.

Addressing SEO Challenges

Benjyehuda, a beloved Shawarma shop with multiple locations in Chicago, recognized the need to amplify their online presence. Despite a strong local following, their catering presence, and essential keywords were buried on the 10th page of Google search results. The company needed a way to attract more customers to their unique offerings of gluten free, vegan and dairy free catering.

By optimizing for relevant keywords, their website attracts nearby customers searching for dining and catering options. These locals are more likely to become regulars and recommend the restaurant through word-of-mouth.

Benjyehuda partnered with PageOneRestaurants and Relevant Elephant to devise a comprehensive digital strategy focusing on enhancing their catering program. The challenge was to drive targeted traffic to their new catering page and increase the amount of orders. Together, the restaurant and marketing team collaborated closely, conducting extensive market research and competitor analysis. They optimized the website with strategic keywords, leveraged local SEO techniques, and crafted engaging content highlighting Benjyehuda’s unique gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free catering offerings.
