Sure, Food Network might be working on an online restaurant reservation system, while bots are stealing all the reservations to the hottest seats in town, but that hasn't stopped OpenTable from slowly taking over the food Internet world.
First, OpenTable bought Foodspotting, and now the reservation site has partnered with Urbanspoon, acquiring Rezbook, Urbanspoon's reservation system.
"We're looking forward to introducing more diners to the convenience of online booking by powering reservations across our more than 20,000 restaurants on the Urbanspoon site and mobile apps," Matt Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of OpenTable, said in a press release. "We're also excited about welcoming Rezbook and its approximately 2,000 restaurant customers to the OpenTable family."
Previously Urbanspoon was seen as a competitor for OpenTable; terms of the agreement were not released, but other reservation systems OpenTable has to contend with include Scripps' CityEats and Yelp's SeatMe. Except neither of them have teamed up to manage reservations at the James Beard House, so, you know. OpenTable's in the clear, for now.
