Choosing Between Wix Restaurants and Wix Stores

2 min read
Wix offers 2 main solutions that sometimes may overlap: Restaurants and Stores. While some businesses are straightforward restaurants or stores, others can decide what solution is better for them according to their needs. 
For example, flower shops don't sell food, but, much like a restaurant, they do sell perishable items that you want to get the same day. So if you own a flower shop you may choose to use Wix Restaurants and not Wix Stores. 

When to use Wix Restaurants

Wix Restaurants is designed for businesses that sell perishable items such as cakes, food and flowers.
