Speaking to your line of work, what constitutes â€śgood designâ€ť?
No longer can something be considered a â€śgood designâ€ť based on luxury or price. A good design is defined by an individualâ€™s experience or is something that simply makes one feel the warmth and comfort of home and family.

The needs and desires of the local communities we belong to is the key influence in our business today. Additionally, WDC is committed to quality and superior customer service.

Is there anything else that you wanted to add?
As part of their relationshipbuilding with customers, WDC strives to educate customers before, during and after a sale to ensure that customers feel comfortable with their purchase even after their appliance is installed. In their efforts, WDC hosts informational cooking demonstrations that bring appliance manufacturers and WDC customers together to discuss the benefits and features of the latest kitchen appliances. These demonstrations afford a great opportunity for customers to see the appliance in action, learn how to cook healthier and smarter, get great recipes, provide feedback to the manufacturer on their products and feel more confident about their new purchase.
