QF excited about new Langford location

Quality Foods, which began in Qualicum Beach in 1982, says it will soon offer their award-winning grocery shopping experience in Langford.

Quality Foods, which began in Qualicum Beach as Qualicum Foods in 1982, says it will soon offer their award-winning grocery shopping experience to the Langford area beginning May 2014.

The company’s three founding partners, John Briuolo, Ken Schley and Noel Hayward believe the time is right for a move to Victoria. “We’re very excited to offer our unique brand to the residents of Langford and the surrounding communities,” states Hayward.

Said Director of Operations Ken Schley: “We have been working very hard for several years to create a presence south of the Malahat, so this is very exciting to be able to finally be involved with these communities as a good neighbour, reliable employer and exceptional grocer.”

Although transformation of an existing building on the Langford Parkway has yet to begin, Hayward says the recruiting process begins this week.

“It’s not too early to get the right people lined up with the right duties,” he remarks. “We want everyone to be in top form once the store opens, and that requires a lot of preparation and planning.”

“We offer a unique shopping experience, so the sooner the better to ensure our new people absorb the culture of exceptional service and sense of community.”

“The store will have a mix of local talent and imports from other QF stores,” said Briuolo, who estimates between 75 and 100 spots will be filled initially, made up primarily of front-line customer service people to senior management.

“We will be looking at all positions and all departments right away. It’s wide open right now.”
