Starting a new restaurant is not easy work. My biggest fear is that when I'm not in the store, things are not being done as they should.

Customers tell me how they love our restaurant, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist and certainly paranoid. What is the best way to secret shop my store? Does anyone have a form they use that I could use to create my own?

Mystery shopping is a cost effective way to monitor your customers perception of your restaurant. Although online surveys do play a part, mystery shopping is a more detailed account of what customers experience and how your policies are adhered to.
I look forward to answering any questions you may have about mystery shopping and how it can help your restaurant.

I am so glad the Mystery Shoppers group is highlighted today. In this tough economy, we pride ourselves as being a cost-effective alternative to marketing programs for restaurants or other service industries. Why spend so many marketing dollars to bring in new customers when you can spend less on an effective service evaluation program to keep an eye on the issues that face your current customers. Ask me how you can create a quality evaluation program for your single local location or multi-location national chain. "Internal marketing" with an effective evaluation program keeps the customers you have, so you can create loyalty and word-of-mouth advertising versus paying for ads, tv, radio, etc.

In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
