Who We Are

our history

Farrand Research was founded in 1991 by Tom Farrand

After many years of leading in-house market research for diverse companies such as Columbia Savings and Loan, The Dial Corporation, ConAgra Grocery Products (Hunt-Wesson Foods), and as the International Market Research Manager with KFC, Tom Farrand decided to start his own company in 1991.

Within a short time, former colleagues had become clients of the fledging Farrand Research team – many of whom are still critical partners of the organization.  Today, the Farrand Research client portfolio boasts over 100 different companies in a variety of industries.

And now many years later, our client list has grown to include over 100 different companies in a variety of industries.

So no matter how big or small your business is, we can put our years of experience to work for you too. You’ll find us centrally located between Los Angeles and Orange County California
