When we decided to open Kosherbyte.com back in 2002, we knew very little about the internet. We were your typical middle aged couple who knew how to turn on their computer, read their email and surf the web. I bought airplane tickets online and my husband ordered books from Amazon, but that was the extent of our knowledge. Ask us about the behind the scenes details involved in programming and you would get blank stares. We knew the basics and that was about it!
What convinced us to jump in and open a business that is entirely online? We recognized the reality of the new business environment. The internet was the future of retail and we were fortunate enough to realize that if we wanted to succeed in this new endeavor, we needed to be visible to our customers. We needed an online presence.
We acknowledged our lack of familiarity with etail and called upon our expert on all things computers, our son!! At 14, he was fearless. We took him to interview web designers, had him listen to all the instructions. If he did not think his parents were idiots before, he certainly did after this experience.
Learning the computer aspect of the business took a lot of trial and error, but in the end, we think that Kosherbyte.com has mastered the art of internet selling. We have a long list of repeat customers who value our customer service and enjoy our delicious kosher treats.
Not only do we offer unusual and tasty kosher cookies, pastries and gourmet food items, we have a large selection of kosher gift baskets for any occasion.
We offer a personal touch. Kosherbyte.com is a big company with an intimate feel and individualized attention to our customer’s requests. Our baskets are all hand made and can be created to our buyer’s specifications.
Kosherbyte has worked hard to master the computer aspects of internet sales. We have come a long way from the days when we needed a 14 year old to translate computer jargon for us. One thing that has not changed is our commitment to provide the best kosher food on the web!
