Dallas, TX, June 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- If you’ve seen Quirk’s, the Greenbook, Bluebook or Marketing News, you may have come across a new company providing one-stop shopping for a large number of focus group facilities around the nation, Focus Coast to Coast.
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Focus Coast to Coast is an association of focus group facilities in 13 major cities, all Top Rated, in the Impulse Survey: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Tampa.
According to President Jeff Savitz, “We screen all members of our association very carefully to select only the best in each market. We offer members a critical advantage over other associations. Instead of paying fees to their associations, Focus Coast to Coast members pay each other for referring business to one another. Moreover, we offer clients incredible service and some of the best discounts they can find even among the largest chains.”
The biggest member in Focus Coast to Coast is Savitz Field and Focus with Top Rated facilities in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and its latest flagship facility in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.
Late last year, Savitz, already with a successful business in Chicago, purchased Home Arts Guild, one of the oldest and most revered focus group facility providers in the nation. Roy Roberts, who was honored by the Chicago Chapter of the American Marketing Association says, “We’re very pleased to be a part of the Savitz and Coast to Coast teams.”
“We’re always looking to provide extras for the clients,” according to Lisa Wilkin, Vice President of Savitz. “For example, our two competitors in Buckhead charge clients for respondent parking which can be over $100 per group. We made a point to find a terrific building in Buckhead which is within walking distance of several top hotels and has totally free parking.”
“Talking about hotels, we have negotiated deep discount rates with a number of major hotels at the airports and near Focus Coast to Coast facilities in all of our cities,” says Erin Jackson, Vice President of Focus Coast to Coast.
Focus Coast to Coast plans to expand to a number of other markets in the U.S., South America, Europe and Asia. When asked if he would change the name once the association expands outside the U.S., President Jeff Savitz replied, “No, I think we’ll just start in New York and work east until we make a full circle.”
