Blink Blog: 8 Benefits of Restaurant Mystery Shopping You Don’t Get from Yelp Reviews

Blink Research’s experienced professionals have managed Mystery Shopping programs for many different types of restaurant groups, including fast casual, pizzerias, saloons, barbecue joints, and fine dining establishments.

We work with our clients to identify which performance criteria and observations are important to them, and our evaluators collect all the intelligence that management wants and needs. Our shoppers give you unbiased candid feedback on everything from service to cleanliness to food quality.

Our mystery shoppers receive detailed instructions on exactly what to do and observe when they visit your restaurants – from what questions to ask when they call to make a reservation, to identifying suggestive selling by the servers, to evaluating the integrity of the bartenders.
