was founded in 1987 by Dale and Michael Bare in Fairfax, Virginia. The idea was born when they found that current ‘mystery shop’ companies were providing only limited mystery shop services in local areas. The Bares wanted to set up a company that would make consistent services available at a national level. Originally called “Restaurant & Hotel Services” (RHS), the company’s base was in the hospitality industry. For many years, Restaurant and Hotel Services provided Mystery Shop Guests and Integrity Audits to hotel and restaurant chains across the USA.

#imacustomer and with BARE International that's exactly what I appear to be. While I conduct assignments, I do not draw attention to myself. In fact, I do all that I can to remain as anonymous and unmemorable as possible. And as a patron of any business, I appreciate being treated fairly, kindly and honestly ~ and whenever possible, promptly. 😉
