The History of Groupon
Originally innovated by Pittsburgh born Andrew Mason, who now no longer works at the company, Groupon originally began with the backing of Eric Lefkofsky, who loved the idea and invested one million US dollars in order to develop the innovation. This seed money was obviously well spent, as it only took 2 years for the business to be valued at 1.35 billion US dollars. Launching an IPO in 2011, Groupon claimed its place as the biggest IPO since Google by an internet company, and it has developed even more in the years to follow, launching a new improved website in 2013, which claimed to launch it from a daily deals site to a complete online marketplace for deals. Upon launch of this new marketplace, Groupon essentially gave away up to five thousand US dollars worth of “Groupon Bucks” to one million lucky customers. In 2014, they saw huge sales during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period, racking up record breaking sales increases of over 25% from the previous years’ figures.
Although a far cry from the original company, with the appointment of COO Rich Williams in June 2015 (now CEO) and the removal of services in some countries such as Thailand, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Philippines, Morocco and Uruguay as part of a restructure that eliminated around 1100 positions within their customer service and sales departments, Groupon continues to be a popular deals website in the countries it operates in.
Groupon.co.uk claims to offer between 50-90% off the retail price of many of its deals, and savvy families have been saving money on everything from holidays to home ware and fashion through the site. The website offers to show deals exclusive to the customers’ locations, making it easier to find deals in their area, but there will be times where customers will need to contact Groupon customers services, who are only too happy to answer any queries about the service.
