Groupon Completes Acquisition of Savored
Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) announced today it has acquired Savored, a leading provider of reservations at the best restaurants across the United States. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
More than 1,000 restaurants nationwide have used Savored's unique platform for yield management. After booking a reservation on Savored.com and visiting the restaurant, diners enjoy up to a 40% discount applied automatically to their bill. Merchants enjoy incremental revenue for tables that would otherwise be empty, and consumers are incentivized by the ‘built-in' discount and roster of high-end eateries to explore.
“Savored's platform nicely complements Groupon's efforts in yield management, an area we've pioneered with Groupon Now!,” said Dan Roarty, VP of Groupon Now. “We look forward to working together to achieve a common goal - making dining out even more fun and affordable for consumers while helping restaurateurs manage inventory and grow their businesses.”
