Our Legacy

Our Legacy

Deep roots… Premium results.

In 2005, a long-time market research firm in Minnesota, Research Systems, became Ascendancy Research. A few years later, Ascendancy acquired Cook Research and Market Resource Associates, both accomplished and respected firms that had provided premium market research services for over two decades.

After moving in 2009 to our upscale, unique, custom designed state-of-the-art facility we continue to grow in scope and services. Clients enjoy fresh, bright focus group suites with spacious backroom viewing, adjacent client lounges and unparalleled hospitality. Our unsurpassed expertise in the recruitment and project management of research studies and above all, client services, has earned us renown in the industry.

For 32 years we’ve served a diverse array of industries and welcome anyone seeking the best qualitative research methods in the business.
