The Fireplace & Bar-B-Q Center is no stranger to change. After the family-owned and operated business started in 1945, the second generation moved from their original Kansas City location on 55th & Troost to 105th & Metcalf in 1980. Despite the new location, they remain the best for fireplace and Bar-B-Q sales, service and installation in the city.
In 2020, over 60 years since they first began serving the area, Fireplace & Bar-B-Q Center was once again ready to make a change. It was not only time to update their website, but they also wanted to give their customers the ability to shop online and place orders for in-store pickup.
That’s why they brought Studio 2108 on board. When designing their new site, our goal was to capture their rich history with a new theme that would be well supported in the future and could be customized however they wished. We imported all their previous content, formatted it to work with the new design and even added new pages.
The most important of these pages was the online store. Using WooCommerce, we were able to create a marketplace that gave Fireplace & Bar-B-Q Center full control. We included the option to add assembly fees to particular products and ensured that a variety of payment methods were available to customers. We also set the site to only allow in-store pickups but included the option to add delivery options in the future, so their market could grow alongside them.
If your website is looking for a refresh, then Studio 2108 is here to help. Call us today, and we’ll make sure your site is up to date and ready for the future.
