We at Eddie Merlot’s pride ourselves on delivering the “WOW” factor for our guests, purveyors, and team members and it is quite obvious that GLWAS exemplifies this long lost way of doing business. Over the years I have worked all over the country and have never witnessed a company that even comes close to GLWAS high level of service, hospitality, and commitment to excellence in everything you do.
