Palm Tree was asked to handle the task of designing websites for each of the respective divisions – Tom’s Market and Tom’s Market Catering. It was important to the owners that each of the websites was recognizable as part of the same brand yet distinct in their appearance. Palm Tree was able to achieve this by using common elements such as overall layout, typefaces, while using different color palettes and imagery to set them apart from one another. The end result is two uniquely striking websites that both exemplify the Tom’s Market brand.
Few website management platforms give a client the ability to maintain two distinct websites. But with the GoSystem platform at the helm, staff at Tom's Market can maintain both websites from the same administrative panel. Staff at Tom’s Market Catering have custom-tailored apps that give them the ability to easily add images to the galleries on the corporate, weddings, and celebrations’ pages, manage event venues, customer testimonials, their expansive catering menus, receive online orders, send email blasts and much more.

“In the past, we solely relied on referral business and were fortunate to be very successful by providing quality products and service,” states Tom’s Market’s owners. “However, we realized that with an outdated web presence, we were missing out on an entire segment of potential customers for both our markets and catering businesses. Palm Tree has helped us tap into that market with the incredible websites they designed for us and it has already led to new sales!”
