Website for Cochon555

The Challenge

Cochon555 puts on epic events in cities across the United States promoting responsibly-raised heritage breed pigs, local agriculture and
artisan chefs, and the best wine, beer, and spirits. Their website not only prevents their events, but manages all the chefs, sponsors and vendors.

Our Solution

We built Cochon555 a completely custom website with a customized code-free, drag and drop backend.. In order to manage all of the tours chefs, sponsors and vendors, we created visual database of all of Cochon’s chefs and sponsors. We built a code-free event page template so Cochon can create new events in a matter of minutes and used Flickr’s API to auto generate event-specific galleries on the website.


  • Custom WordPress Theme
  • Visual Databases
  • Animated Mobile Menu
  • Flickr API Integration


Flickr API Integration 

We installed a full screen background slider with image after image of beautiful food photography.
The translucent header allows the imagery to peek through and adds a touch of elegance to the site.

Custom Event Builder

Cochon puts on events all year long in cities across the U.S. We built customizable mini-sites for their events, making it easy for attendees to buy tickets and learn about the event and for vendors to stay informed. Plus, its incredibly friendly backend editor makes it easy for Cochon to create and update events in minutes.

Visual Databases

Over 100 chefs compete each year at Cochon’s national events. We built a drag and drop database of all the chefs so the client could add chefs with one click to any event on the tour. The code-free database saved the client hundreds of hours a year compared to entering each chef manually.


Mobile Friendly Design
Critical information and links are featured in the mobile version. Buttons are easy to click, the navigation menu slides
in from the side of the page and a purchase tickets link is always readily available.

Secondary Sticky Menu

Navigating the Chef’s Course page is made easy with a sticky secondary menu. Each navigation item anchors to its corresponding section of the page,
allowing users to move through a content-filled page with ease.
