Start | Themes
WordPress is by far the best platform to use when getting started. They have so many free templates you can choose from. Templates allow you to change the colors and look of the site to match your own. Go to this link to get started shopping for which theme or themes fit your brand best. Check out their food blog themes here. We recommend WordPress.com over .org since .com is more designed for companies.
