WordPress in 2023 for small businesses

First off, I’m new to WordPress and only now discovering it’s mass appeal. Several small businesses (catering mostly) in my area need websites. They want their hand held and I’m willing to help out (8 years as a full stack developer).

They’ll want a contact form and possibly a service to order food (sends an email receipt and creates a Stripe transaction) – is WordPress an ideal solution for churning out websites quickly? I’ll be the sole developer for maintanence and point of contact. The websites will mostly be static. Does anyone use WordPress for their own clients and have success?
