Biff’s Jack Shack are a vegan junk food restaurant chain based in the United Kingdom. They serve a variety of vegan burgers, wings, and sides, all made with plant-based ingredients. Biff’s Jack Shack is committed to providing delicious and sustainable food, and they have saved over 200 tonnes of CO2 emissions since they started. They are available for delivery in many cities across the UK, and they also have a few physical locations.
Due to their early success and rapid growth, they needed an online platform to share their story, updates, new recipes and information about their many locations around the UK.
Following discussions with the client, I decided to not go down the route of a more complex Headless CMS solution and instead went with a more traditional monolithic WordPress approach. This allowed for a much faster development time, which in turn kept the project within budget as well as reduce hosting costs.
To ensure a well structured, organised codebase I have used Twig templating (via Timber) to separate the Front End view templates from the Back End. This allowed me to easily abstract the components/pages into named module folders containing the relevant HTML, CSS and JS for each. I find this dramatically increases productivity of development and allows for greater clarity of where everything is located in codebase.
