About Mystery Shopper Services
Mystery Shopper Services is a division of Business Evaluation Services. We are headquartered in Arroyo Grande, CA. with a second office located in Bakersfield, CA.
BES is a national company, and has been in business since 1996 serving all points of the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico.
We serve a variety of industries including retail, restaurants, financial, automotive, theme parks, flooring, furnishings, hotels, consumer electronics, wireless services, competitive analysis, price audits and market audits.
We currently partner with many national companies and manufacturers, as well as smaller independent retailers. The clients we serve range from globally recognized brands such as Microsoft, Walt Disney, and Tommy Hilfiger, to smaller independent companies with single locations.
BES is a service focused company which believes in taking more of a partnership approach to doing business rather than just being a vendor providing a service. Our goal is to build long term partnerships with our customers. With this in-mind, we are not a high pressure sales company. In fact, we do not take on every project that is brought to us; we first evaluate the needs of the customer and determine if we are the best fit for their needs before we take on any projects. If everything is a good fit, and we feel we can bring value to their operations, we will then work with them if we are fortunate enough to be selected as their partner.
Because of this approach to doing business, many of our customers have been with us for over a decade conducting monthly programs.
About Mystery Shopping
We all shop in some form or another, and many of us enjoy shopping. But very rarely does opportunity present itself to do what we enjoy doing and getting paid for doing it. Imagine earning extra income for going shopping and filling out a questionnaire! More
