Profit is not a four letter word, it is six. Have been dealing with Tony and crew for 30 years. Dating is an issue with all stores and wholesalers. Worldwide is a gem and we should be glad to have it in southern Alberta. Perfect?? Nope, but pretty damn good.
This is a horrible business to purchase from. They have sold me products with expectation dates rubbed off. The product it self reaked of nail polish remover. The owners are condisending and rude. They are always looking to make a fast buck any way possible.
I have heard some nasty things about how they treat their employees.
Excellent I have been purchasing off of Worldwide Specialty Foods for the past 10 years and I can't say enough about how great they are. They stand behind their product. I have had personal delivery from Dominique Guyot where ever do you get a delivery salesman that will check over your order and not just drop it off in the middle of your store. He also being a Chef for many years for Chateau Lake Louise is extremely knowledgeable about Cheese and the other products they sell... I completely disagree with the previous statements..
They claim to serve small companies, however, no matter the size of the order they refuse to deliver to a residence, even for an additional fee. Often the product is very dusty and has to be cleaned prior to being used and often is very close or past the due date, yet they still sell it. I cant say that even once when I have gone to pick up an order that it has all been there. They say they have the product but when you arrive you have to wait because they didnt and are trying to see if they have any substitutes. There is no website, nobody seems to have a clear idea of what is in the warehouse and they take orders over the phone for products they dont have in stock.
I dont understand why they wont get a website made so people can SEE EXACTLY what is in stock, order it and have it shipped out or come pick it up if they are local. To be able to order online would be so much easier. Initially they were my go to but have fallen to emergency or last minute only.
