Georgie & Tom’s is a high-end meal subscription service preparing small batch, handcrafted meals, delivered fresh, directly to customers’ homes. Georgie & Tom’s is quickly growing their range of meals to include over 100 choices.

Leading on personalization, customers are able to set preferences and a selection algorithm will optimize their orders each week based off of their preferences.

About This Project

In collaboration with Georgie & Tom’s, we helped them design and develop their website with a goal to increase website traffic and conversion rates while targeting the correct audience.

What Did We Deliver?

Feature-Rich Subscription Site

In the months prior to launch, we started by analyzing the existing e-commerce experience and conducting a competitive analysis of the market. Through different experiments and testing, we delivered a new appearance to the site and constructed a plan to build a platform that encompassed the business model.

How We Did It

Shopify and Bold Integration

The project’s number one goal was to provide customers with a unique shopping experience compared to other food subscriptions. We achieved this by customizing Shopify and Bold, completing the meal selection algorithm through Javascript and Python, building out a broad set of customer communication, and implementing AWS Lambda Scripts for automation.

Meal Selection Algorithm

The meal selection algorithm uses a combination of revealed individual and general customer preferences; and stated individual preferences.

Using AWS, we obtain our set of customers for a given delivery day via Bold API and then receive their respective preferences through the Metafields Manager API. Each customer’s preferences are then run through a python script that outputs their new selections, where their next order is updated through the Bold API.
