Are you at least 21 years of age and do you eat out at local/regional restaurants at least twice per month?

We are an advertising agency conducting Focus Group surveys to help us better understand dining habits of those living in the Greater Philadelphia area (Philadelphia and the Suburbs).

We are interested in those Greater Philadelphia area residents (Philadelphia and the Suburbs) who enjoy Casual Dining. Some sample restaurants in the Casual Dining Category would include:

  • TGI Friday’s
  • PJ  Whelihan's
  • Red Lobster
  • Ruby Tuesday’s
  • Buffalo Wild Wings
  • Chickie’s & Pete’s
  • Outback Steak House
  • Maggiano’s
  • Caribous
  • The Bonefish Grill
  • Red Robbin
  • Cheesecake Factory
  • Xfinity Live
  • And similar restaurants that are NOT fast food, that offer table service (not buffet’s), generally offer access to craft beer/on tap beer and liquor, and offer a variety of moderately priced meal options.


If you are at least 21 years of age and eat out at least twice a month at the restaurants shown above or similar casual dining restaurants we would like your help.
