While the world today revolves around data, 20 years ago that wasn’t the case. Then, restaurant-focused mystery shopping companies were hard to come by. Mystery shopping companies in general, were impersonal and, sometimes questionable. So, as a general manager for a chain of restaurants, Mistie Boulton sat out to find a better way to track and monitor service.


EyeSpy was born with a simple mission: To help establishments get insight into their day-today operations and help them provide the highest level of service. Through detailed reports, operators get rare insight from the customer perspective and get to “Experience your business as your customers do.” These detailed reports not only support employee development and foster teamwork, but they give operators actionable points for service improvements. 


“To help myself and my colleagues get better operational reporting and support is why I founded EyeSpy,” says Mistie Boulton, founder and CEO of EyeSpy, the Bay Area’s number one mystery shopping company.
