A scrumptious move to Shopify
Meet Beecher's Handmade Cheese
Meet Beecher's Handmade Cheese
A favorite of locals and an exciting discovery for visitors to Seattle, Beecher’s Handmade Cheese is known for its artisanal quality. A feature in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market and New York’s Flatiron district, their product offerings don’t just stop at plain old cheese. Beecher’s also offers the “world’s best” macaroni and cheese, chocolates, local cafes, and more.
Part of the Sugar Mountain family of brands, their team wanted to elevate the Beecher’s Handmade Cheese online presence and engaged with our team to rebuild their website to feature more robust ecommerce options and a modernized content strategy.
Sugar Mountain came to us with the idea of migrating the Beecher’s Handmade Cheese website to Shopify we put together a game plan and got to work. The existing website was built with Drupal CMS handling all of the primary content pages (blogs, recipes, store locators) and Magento handling the catalog/checkout as the transaction engine.
The goals of this project were to move them to Shopify standard edition to help lower their monthly infrastructure costs, get to a single system, maintain the design, maintain some of the unique checkout features, and not lose any capabilities from a CMS perspective. And get it done quickly.
We migrated all content, including pages from their Cheese Education and Recipes sections, as well as Cafe pages and other general content. All pages underwent a thorough QA that checked for formatting.
They wanted to keep the existing website design/theme during this transition. Oftentimes when moving systems you are also changing technology bases, and in this case theme paradigms. We were able to customize their new Shopify website to Beecher’s Handmade Cheeses brand standards, creating a look and feel unique to their brand with their typography, website colors, buttons, CTA lengths, and logos throughout. Our front-end development team did an incredible job keeping the experience consistent.
The new Beecher’s Handmade Cheese website launched in the summer of 2021. It’s fully optimized for both ecommerce and content marketing on a Shopify standard platform to accomplish their goals of lowering their ecommerce platform's total cost of ownership and ongoing support costs without sacrificing key functionality.
