What began as a modest family ranch in California’s fertile San Joaquin Valley is now the Harris Ranch Inn and Restaurant, a world-famous showcase for Harris Ranch Reserve Beef and Harris Farms produce. As one of the busiest restaurants in California, with a 153 room inn and countless other on-site amenities, it truly is an unexpected oasis.
Harris Ranch selected us on their search for a trustworthy WordPress developer to help them redefine and properly represent their many amenities. We completely redesigned the website from top to bottom, strategizing on the best way to effectively communicate their content throughout the process. The main site is backed by a customized WordPress CMS, while their online storefront is seamlessly integrated using Shopify's powerful ecommerce engine.
There's no doubt that Harris Ranch offers a one-of-a-kind experience—they attract thousands of visitors every single day. Their previous site didn't properly communicate the large array of what they have to offer in an effective or engaging way. Our goal was to change all of that, giving online visitors a similar experience to pulling up to their grounds in person. We also helped draft up key headlines and call-outs to set the proper tone and help their visitors get to the meatiest sections of the site in no time flat.
With nothing of its caliber anywhere in the vicinity, Harris Ranch is a beautiful oasis between Southern and Northern California. It was important that folks looking to stay at their inn had a quick yet comprehensive way to browse their available room configurations, policies and amenities. Most importantly, booking a room is quick and simple no matter where they are on the site.
The Harris Ranch Beef Company prides itself on producing the highest quality beef in the world in a humane way. They needed an efficient way to meet the demands of their customers seeking their products all over the United States. We integrated a customized ecommerce storefront powered by the ever-faithful Shopify platform. Where’s the beef? Don’t worry, it’ll be at your doorstep in no time!
“When I first made contact with Jon and team, I was taken with the ‘can-do’ attitude towards our entire project (it was a big one), and their willingness to meet our needs – both creative and budgetary! We had a fairly intense approval process on our end, but the Sleepless team always made working together easy; from new needs popping up, to last minute changes, the overall approach was hard-working but always positive. Even post-launch, the team has continued to be helpful and interactive, making it easy to solve any issues quickly and resolutely. Thank you, Sleepless!”
