Kodiak Cakes' growth was being stifled by inefficient online fulfillment processes and weak online brand. They came to us with more than just an outdated website (which we redesigned from the ground up). They needed to save on operational costs by transitioning their order fulfillment to a third party. This was only possible through an API connection to their new 3PL.
The developers here at 5M built a two tiered website for Kodiak Cakes using Wordpress and Shopify. Their new custom theme makes it easy to add and edit recipes, products, and blog articles through their Shopify backend and custom built Wordpress modules.
To make drop shipping possible, we built an API connection that sends online order information to Kodiak’s 3PL, where orders are fulfilled and shipped.
To help customers find products at local retailers, we built a custom “Find in Stores” module. Customers can type in their location and the module uses a third party mapping tool to show them where they can find their desired product nearby.
Our impact ultimately elevated the look and feel of Kodiak Cakes website, improved sales both online and at local retail locations, and cut operation costs for their company.
