problem

the challenge

Formaggio Kitchen was using a Magento 1 website built for them in 2012, but they realized it wasn’t meeting their needs. The biggest issue was that the site wasn’t mobile friendly. With 50% of their traffic being mobile generated, this was clearly a major issue. Additional issues were outdated design and high maintenance costs.
