Since its launch in the US in 2008, Groupon has quickly grown into a successful online group buying platform. TB&I talks to its UK arm about how the business works.

Groupon launched in the US in 2008 and spread to the UK through the acquisition of MyCityDeal in May 2010. Groupon is the UK’s leading group buying website and features a different deal every day in more than 60 regions across the UK and Ireland.
