Mystery Shopper Programs.

You are buying quality ingredients, developing sensational menus with the chef while revamping the front of house at huge cost all in an attempt to create that experience which will secure return customers. You are convinced that you have all the bases covered… but they don’t come back. Why?

FACT: 80% never actually tell you why. They just leave, never to return.

Let us help you get the answers. Trained, experienced mystery guests will survey your business and share the hard cold facts about the customer experience with you.

According to the National Restaurant and retail statistics, 1 customer will tell 11 people about their restaurant experience. If the experience is shadowed in a bad light you have lost 11 customers. Furthermore, service problems account for 70% of your lost customers.
