TripAdvisor-owned restaurant reservation platform TheFork has acquired competitor Restorando to expand its presence in Latin America.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The acquisition will add 3,500 bookable restaurants to TheFork’s network, bringing the platform’s total number of bookable restaurants around the globe to 60,000.
It will also grow TheFork’s reach across eight countries: Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Uruguay, Panama, Chile, Peru and Brazil, where it already operates.
Founded in 2011, Restorando is used by more than 4.5 million people each year in Latin America.
TheFork, which was founded in 2007 and acquired by TripAdvisor in May 2014, has its largest footprint in Europe and Australia.
Restorando will continue to operate under its current name but will switch to TheFork brand in the next few months.
