Capacity utilization is a major concern for restaurants as they seek to maximize revenues, because unoccupied restaurant tables, which essentially represent lost revenue, cannot be stored for use on other days.

This study attempts to discuss how restaurants can utilize group-buying platforms as a revenue management tool and to identify the key features of restaurant deals which can help generate sales and revenues on these platforms.
