Get Started

"With basics like demographics and traffic counts plus unique customer intent date, IdealSpot removes uncertainty by giving us the ability to quickly evaluate potential locations and make confident site selection decisions."

Sean Greenberg
Restauranteur, Pluckers

"IdealSpot helped me understand my target audience by going beyond demographics and showing me the local demand for my services. I was able to see where my opportunities are, and more importantly, aren't."

Chris Shonk
Franchisee, Massage Envy

"When I discover a new potential location, I now plot all the factors into the IdealSpot platform and simply share that data internally. enabling our team to view all of these individual data layers overlaid on a single report is a game changer."

Justin Metcalf
Private Equity, Legends Express Car Wash

"IdealSpot was able to differentiate us from traditional real estate developers that only showed demographics like household incomes... We were able to show all of that plus this next-level data to support why a particular retailer would be most beneficial and successful at a certain location."

Jesse Weber
Senior Managing Director, Newmark Knight Frank

"The U.S. Census Bureau has [reports] that are very rudimentary and you can only narrow things down by pizza orders, or other random things that don't necessarily equate to your business... IdealSpot was worth the money, for sure."

Michael Portman
Co-Founder, Birds Barbershop

"We needed good site selection software, that does not only give data, but accurate and useful data."

James Fracht
Director of Real Esatte, Boston's Restaurant & Sports Bar
