Quality Foods is coming to Langford in 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 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,” said Ken Schley, director of operations.

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 said in a press release. “We want everyone to be in top form once the store opens, and that requires a lot of preparation and planning.”

Those interested in becoming part of the Quality Foods experience can visit the QualityFoods.com website for how to apply.

“The store will have a mix of local talent and imports from other QF stores.” Briuolo 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.”

QF Langford is the first of two stores planned for the Greater Victoria area.

“The other site, slated for View Royal’s Eagle Creek Village, was announced last fall and will open after the Langford location is operational,” Hayward explained.
