What Makes Catalyst Ranch Uniquely
Right for Your Focus Groups?

Catalyst Ranch has become the preferred choice of cutting edge market researchers who are in the forefront of their profession, developing innovative ways to gain valuable information and insights from consumers. Market research techniques continue to evolve, but the facilities typically used for focus groups have remained the same for decades. Our space, your research.

Let respondents relax in an environment that has been uniquely designed by Catalyst Ranch to reduce inhibitions – filled with comfy couches, armchairs, coffee tables, handcrafted rugs, colorfully painted walls, paintings and ethnic accents. Get them talking. That’s why they’re here. Our space, your insights.

How Can We Set Up the Rooms?

Our variety of large spaces allows your clients to be right in the room with the consumers either actively interacting or quietly observing. Or they can choose to be tucked away in their own private and super comfortable viewing room, watching all the action through mirrors and on monitors. The rooms are flexible and can be tailored to your needs. Here are some examples:

How Do You Get Here?

We’re accessible. Smack dab in downtown Chicago, with easy parking, trains, cabs, sidewalks. Right off the Kennedy Expressway, a quick hop to both airports. A short walk from several subway stops and all the major train stations. We offer discounted validated parking at a parking garage a block away. Fine dining and lodging are within strolling distance, too. Waltz over here the first time. You’ll jitterbug back.
