The integration will further deepen the adoption of Fave, which is already the No. 1 food and beverage app in the iOS App Store. Fave will also inherit Groupon’s steady base of customers, enabling the brand to serve over 3 million subscribers combined.
On Fave today, customers will be able to find many of the best deals from a variety of merchants including, Westin Hotel, Red Box, Le Méridien Hotel, La Juiceria, KL Tower Atmosphere 360, Kenny Rogers Roasters, Coliseum, Tutti Frutti, Outback Steakhouse, and Morganfield’s among others. Nationwide, Fave enlists over 2,000 local businesses including restaurants, spas, fitness centres, hotels and more.
“Everyone loves a great meal, at a great deal. At Fave, we will continue to work with the best restaurants and beyond to extend more exciting and new offerings to consumers. Customers can not only buy a deal, but also pay the entire bill via Fave as they discover the city and save money at the same time. From family to couples, colleagues to friends, our aspiration is to make Fave their favourite app,” said Joel Neoh, Founder of Fave.
“It is more than just putting a new name to Groupon. Fave is a homegrown brand developed and headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, and it is now used by millions of users and thousands of businesses across Southeast Asia including Jakarta and Singapore,” added Neoh.
The consolidation into Fave follows the company’s acquisition of Groupon Malaysia in November 2016 to shape new prospects for online-to-offline (O2O) economy in Malaysia and across Southeast Asia.
“Fave will be our engine to spur widespread adoption of mobile commerce. In the coming months, we will continue to focus on our progress in developing Fave and rolling out its full service capabilities,” said Neoh.
Fave is available for free on the App Store and Google Play Store, and accessible online at www.myfave.com.
