About Cleveland Research Company


Cleveland Research Company provides indispensable intelligence to our customers in a succinct, efficient and cost-effective manner.  Real-time insights and forecasts allow CRC stakeholders to identify short- and long-term trends and opportunities in order to create a competitive advantage and win in the marketplace. 


We built the foundation of CRC in the equity research business with institutional money managers as our primary client base (mutual funds & hedge funds).


We established a very unique business model that creates a competitive advantage for our institutional clients.  Our discipline includes establishing long-term relationships with key contacts throughout the channel (suppliers, distributors, competitors, brokers, etc.) that help us spot real-time trends and inflections in the end markets we follow.


Due to the increasing number of requests from the channel to enable access to our research reports, we started to explore building a subscription platform in 2012 for companies to leverage our work across their entire organizations.  We also experimented with hosting our own events and webinars as another layer of incremental service, and the participation has been well above our expectations.


We offer three core service offerings

  1. Research Subscription services that give you access to CRC industry reports that can be leveraged across your entire organization.
  2. CRC Councils provide custom channel content and power connections within each respective end market. We offer five channel-specific councils in Foodservice, Retail, eCommerce, Home Improvement and Healthcare.  These member-only share groups are built to provide dedicated resources through events, benchmarking, custom insights and reports.
  3. Advisory Services support for organizations that are looking for customized research solutions including on-site presentations for senior management teams, long-term strategic planning, custom projects and more that answer specific strategic questions. 


Similar to our equity teams, we employ high energy and high potential associates with a combination of drive, passion, creativity and an entrepreneurial spirt to help us exponentially grow Market Research going forward.
