Groupon buys restaurant discovery app Plumfare

|By:, SA News Editor

Plumfare's app, like a few others out there,  allows users to share pictures of items ordered at restaurants with friends. It also allows users to "gift" the items, should a partnership exist with a given restaurant.

A Groupon (GRPN -1.2%) spokesperson confirmed the acquisition to VentureBeat.

Groupon, basking in the glow of its post-earnings surge, recently launched a high-end restaurant reservation/discount service, and is trying to evole into a broader e-commerce services provider for local merchants.
