World Wide Celebrates anniversary with expanded offerings

Atlanta, GA, May 16, 2011; World Wide Concessions, a creative minority supplier of promotional products based in Bellmawr, NJ celebrates a major milestone – 25 successful years providing unique and affordable branded solutions – with the addition of office furniture geared toward the mid-market.  Contracting to distribute major brands including Steelcase, Global and HON, World Wide draws upon office solutions experience of its Founder and CEO, Garry Maddox.  In 1995, Garry took over the well respected and family owned A. Pomerantz & Co. and has been the active CEO ever since.

“While ad specialty items remain extremely effective marketing tools, creating a brand-focused workplace accomplishes so much more” said World Wide Concessions’ Founder and President Garry Maddox. “Our clients need help with building their brand in and outside the workplace.  The environment where their employees spend most of their time actually sets the tone and conveys their corporate culture, attitude and style.  We decided to leverage our branding expertise to offer a more inclusive solution.”

Joining the World Wide team to support the office furniture launch are Mindy Bernstein and Linda Riviezzo.  Mindy brings 20+ years experience in office furniture and workspace design systems and is also a certified interior designer.  Linda is a seasoned sales professional known for her exemplary client relationship focus and ability to customize winning solutions.  World Wide’s VP of Sales & Marketing, Lynn Burney comments, “We are thrilled to have Mindy and Linda join the team.  We know they will help to energize our team and round out our service capabilities.”

World Wide has made a name for itself in the highly competitive promotional products industry as an experienced company that has maintained a personal touch.  Always known as a supplier with a heart, World Wide consistently communicates with their customers and the marketplace to understand their needs.  Garry, former centerfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies and 8-time recipient of the Gold Glove Award, leads the World Wide team and also donates considerable resources, energy and passion to nonprofit causes that serve troubled inner city youth.

“Stay tuned for more exciting news as we celebrate our 25th year in business over the coming months by showcasing our unmatched creativity, experience and customer focus” says Lynn.  “We have been a quiet company far too long.  It’s time to come out of our shell.”

    World Wide Concessions is taking the promotional products business to the next level with a new web site. The superior service World Wide customers expect is now available online as well as by phone or in person.

    “We’re always trying to make things easier for our customers,” said World Wide founder and president Garry Maddox. Garry is regarded as one of the finest defensive centerfielders in baseball’s history which explains his penchant for perfection. “We want them to rest assured whatever they need, we can handle it.”

    Not only will web site visitors be able to select from the company’s globally sourced offerings and get customer service details, they can learn more about using these products to efficiently and effectively promote their businesses.

    On the updated web site, customers can browse seasonal merchandise, special offers, eco-friendly items and more by category. If they want brainstorm ideas before committing to them, a simple click or call will put them in touch with a member of the World Wide team. If they want to know more about maximizing their investment in branded items, they can peruse articles by World Wide experts on topics such as effective budgeting for promotional items.

    “We understand that times are tough,” said Garry. “We also understand that it’s in times like these that businesses can’t afford not to promote themselves. We’re here to help folks make smart choices to increase their customer bases now and in the future.”

    A recent survey of business travelers revealed that 71 percent of them had received a promotional item from a business within the past year, 76 percent could name the organization that gave them the product; 33 percent had the item with them. These figures indicate that promotional items are a simple and effective way to promote/showcase/build a brand name which ultimately increases sales and revenue.

    World Wide prides itself on taking care of customers – whether it’s perfectly executing a last-minute rush order, producing a favorite item or suggesting something new. And the web site is just another way for the professionals at World Wide to provide their customers with quality items delivered rapidly at reasonable cost.
