About us

JKS is a consumer market research company focusing
on mystery shopping, focus groups and surveys.


Our history

Originated in 1981 as a Dallas-based company, JK Services offered information retrieval services to a variety of clients, many of whom were in advertising, legal and real estate professions. In 1994, JK Services, Inc., was formed as a Virginia corporation specializing in primary and secondary research and database information retrieval. The company soon expanded into market research and in 1998 changed its corporate name and logo to JKS Inc.

Today, JKS Inc. concentrates solely on consumer market research and serves clients throughout the United States and Canada. We partner with the Austin Creative Group, a full-service creative team providing services in marketing, event planning, public relations and web development.

JKS Inc. values its role not only in the business world, but in the communities where we do business. We are active in supporting programs for the arts and children's health care.
