American Express acquires Resy


American Express has signed an agreement to acquire Resy, a digital restaurant reservation booking and management platform.

Founded in 2014, Resy offers a table management, CRM and booking technology suite for restaurants, with a consumer-facing restaurant reservation app and website. Resy currently works with approximately 4,000 restaurants in 154 U.S. cities and 10 countries, seating more than 2.6 million diners a week, according to a statement from American Express.

American Express is working with recently acquired companies—personal travel assistant app Mezi, UK dining reservation platform Cake Technologies, airport lounge discovery and booking platform LoungeBuddy, and Japanese restaurant reservation platform Pocket Concierge, to develop a suite of new digital capabilities, according to the company.
