Groupon acquires Breadcrumb

Groupon has acquired Breadcrumb, which builds affordable and intuitive mobile POS products for restaurants and the hospitality sector. Founder Seth Harris boasts more than 12 years of hospitality management experience.

Breadcrumb’s mobile hospitality point of sale system uses wireless, off-the shelf touch devices such as the iPad and cloud computing to deliver its POS services. Breadcrumb works with traditional POS printers and cash drawers, with all data automatically synced in real-time within the Breadcrumb Cloud Server.

Breadcrumb will continue to serve new and existing clients and will offer their product to existing merchant partners. Groupon merchant partners that use Breadcrumb’s point of sale system will be able to significantly improve the process of redeeming a Groupon, according to the company.
