I am looking for a service that allows my restaurant to create a website
and menu to order food online.  People or customers can access the
site and place orders.  The system should be able to interface with my
existing fax
machine only, I do not want to have buy a computer for my restaurant.

Looks like these sites sell "templatated" solutions- I am looking for
a 100% custom design to set apart from the competition.

In other words, custom website, custom menu and custom ordering - not
a stock design.

The services I listed allow varying degrees of customization. 
Generally, they provide ways to integrate or link to their ordering
functions from an existing site.  In your case, you don't have the
existing site, but that says that you could develop a custom site and
integrate or link to their ordering services.

CLICKup & Order, for example, has designers who will develop a custom
site for you.  For details, see their FAQ page:

Or you could certainly have a completely custom web site developed. 
Naturally, the more customized it is, the more expensive it is likely
to be.  There are hundreds, if not thousands, of website designers who
could design a 100% custom website for you.  For a custom site design,
you may want to work with a designer who is local to you, for ease of

There are even website designers who specialize in restaurants, such

But in my opinion, you could get as good a design from a nonspecialist designer.

Having said all that, I'm not sure how to help you at this point.  Are
you looking for a general website designer, a website designer who
specializes in restaurants, or a website designer located near you? 
Or something else?

As far as I know there is not such a thing that would intergrate. Well
other than a computer. If you are just wanting to fax, I guess you
could just send out menus and have people write their orders down and
fax them to you.

FYI - there is also a new service out there that places restaurant
menu on their website for free.
or try this one

When a new order comes through ZipDiner, the restaurant is sent a fax.
I believe they charge a nominal commission from the restaurant on all
orders that go through their website.

Its a 3-step process for a customer
1. Enter your zip code and find restaurants registered with ZipDiner
2. Browse the restaurant menu
3. Order takeout or delivery

On submitting the order, the restaurant will get a fax of the order
immediately. I would check with them
( to see if they can provide
you with a fully customized solution.

"Re: order food online and it comes to my fax"

Some subject lines are just delightfully misleading, this one
conjuring up the image of us online-fixated beings getting a meal
without leaving the monitor.
I wonder if an ink-jetted meal would taste different from a laser-printed one ...?

Glad you got such a satisfactory answer.  :-)

Any web designer can create a site for you...

A great solution is the in-fax service at This
allows the website to take an order, and then it get faxed to your fax
machine. No computer needed. they charge $10/month, and 10 cents per
page which is very reasonable.
