Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday announced the $3.5 million investment at the company's River West offices. The investment includes job training funds and tax credits over the next 10 years.
"This company is on the cutting edge of making things happen, not only in terms of creating jobs, but saving consumers money," said Quinn.
Groupon was founded just two years ago and offers daily discounts for merchants and restaurants based on the number of people that sign up.
Groupon has said it has about 30,000 clients whose products and services it offers.
