Eat Out For Free Without Washing The Dishes

blog mystery diningEating and extra cash – are these two of your favorite things? Well, now you can indulge in yourself in everyway, from the tip of your tongue to the bottom of your wallet, thanks to restaurant industry market research opportunities. Many larger urban areas in the United States offer chances of foodies like you to dine-out on the house, enjoying every category on the menu from appetizers and entrees to desserts and after-dinner drinks. What is the catch for this chance to eat and drink like a king? You’ll have to fill out detailed reports on your experience in the restaurant – but it is well worth the effort!

 To find these palate and pocketbook pleasing opportunities, search through an online database of survey sites, such as Survey Adventure, to find those companies which offer “secret shopper” and “mystery diner” programs. You can also try to contact the marketing department of your favorite restaurant chain or independent establishment to see if they manage any programs of this type. Depending on where you live, you’ll find opportunities in a wide rage of spots including casual family-friendly restaurant chains to fine dining establishments and even coffee houses and ice cream shops.

 While you do get to eat for “free” as a restaurant mystery diner, the feasting does come with a little work. Typically, you will be asked to observe and record many factors during your dining experience that will later be submitted on a mail-in, telephone or online survey. These questions could include everything from subjective questions like the overall ambiance, server-friendliness and food quality to precisely measurable factors like the time it took food to arrive, were your table items (like  bread, chips, water) refreshed, and did the server suggest a dessert after the meal.

 So that your identity as a mystery diner isn’t revealed during your restaurant visit, you will usually be asked to pay for your meal as if you were a regular customer and then submit your receipts for reimbursement. This also provides insurance for the company that you will actually fill out the reports. After you have filled out the paid surveys to the satisfaction of the mystery shopping agency, you will then be sent your dining refund plus and other incentive that was offered.

 Mystery shopping for the restaurant industry is a super way for cost-conscious folks to enjoy a night on the town without busting the piggy bank. However, do remember that this is still a job and the number one priority of mystery shopping in dining establishments is secretly collecting the data that the client company has contracted for. As long as you keep this in mind, don’t blow your cover and fill out your paid survey in a timely manner you’ll have a positive and rewarding experience.
