American Express has acquired Resy, a platform for restaurant reservations and management.
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed and a statement says the deal builds on the “benefits and services” Amex offers its card members.
Resy, which works with about 4,000 restaurants, has a B2C website and mobile application for restaurant bookings as well as offering customer relationship and booking technology services.
According to a statement the acquisition should be completed in summer 2019 and sits alongside other recent acquisitions by the company in the dining, travel and lifestyle sectors.
In January 2018, Amex acquired chat-based app Mezi while more recently it acquired lounge access service, LoungeBuddy.
The statement adds that Resy is primarily focused on the U.S. but also has a presence in the U.K. Europe, Canada and Australia.
