Savored works with more than 1,000 restaurants in the United States to fill empty tables through a service that offers diners automatic discounts of up to 40 percent off their bill. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Savored may be combined with Groupon Now!, a service that lets restaurant owners post discounted offers quickly to fill empty tables during slow periods. “Savored`s platform nicely complements Groupon`s efforts in yield management, an area we`ve pioneered with Groupon Now!,” Dan Roarty, vice president of Groupon Now, said in a statement.
Groupon Now! has been slow to take off in some cities because there needs to be a lot of merchants in a small area for it to work well.
