FAQ

COVID-19 Pandemic

Is the delivery service for equipment still offered during the pandemic?

We do continue to provide the delivery service for equipment in times of pandemic. Deliverers and customers are asked to comply with some measures to ensure the protection of everyone as well as the smooth running of the delivery process. A member of our team will communicate with you to explain the various instructions that must be followed.

Is the shipping service for packages still offered during the pandemic?

Some members of our team continue to prepare the packages of customers who prefer to get items delivered at their home. The delivery time can prove to be longer than usual since Doyon Després has a high volume of orders that must be processed, and Canada Post has a high volume of packages that have to be shipped.

Online Orders

Where do I have to enter the promo code that was given to me?

If you have received a promo code by email or from a Doyon Després employee, you can enter it in the "Add a promo code" box that can be found in your basket on our website as soon as you will have added items in it. Promo codes are only valid for transactions that are completed online and for items that are sold at regular price.

Can I complete a transaction online with a gift card?

Yes, it is possible! Enter the code that appears on the back of your gift card in the box for that purpose in the order form on our website. A payment request by credit card will be sent to you if the value of your gift card is not high enough for you to pay the full amount of the order with it.

Can I make changes to my order once it has been sent?

You can communicate with a customer service advisor to report the presence of incorrect information in your order form. He or she will change this information if the report is made quickly. If you report it too late, the customer service advisor will tell you or will suggest a solution to remedy the situation if there is any solution.

It is impossible to change the content of an order. You can however ask a customer service advisor to cancel it if your package has not been sent yet. You will then be able to make a new order if that is what you wish.

How can I track my package from an order made online?

If you signed in to your account on our website before completing a transaction, you can check the status of your order online. To do this, sign in to your account, click on "My Orders", and check the status that is shown beside a given order number.

These are the three words that can appear beside an order number and their meaning:

  • "Pending": Unconfirmed transaction completed with a gift card
  • "Processed": Confirmed order in process of being prepared
  • "Shipped": Package that is in the hands of one of our shipping partners

If you made an order on our website as a guest or if you wish to get more information about your order, communicate with a customer service advisor by email, by phone or via Messenger.

Park your vehicle in the curbside pickup area and stay in it. Then, dial the phone number that is inscribed in the second email you received since making your order on our website. Notify your presence to the employee and provide him or her with the requested information. He or she will go to your vehicle and put the package in the back of it.

You can pick up a package in the curbside pickup area during the opening hours of the stores. Furthermore, it is imperative to have a proof of identity on hand to pick up a package.

Can an acquaintance of mine pick up a package for me?

This can be done. Communicate with a customer service advisor by email at service@doyondespres.com or by phone at 1-866-444-1110 to mention to him or her the name of the designated person, the expected date of its visit at the store and your order number. This information will be transmitted to the supervisor of the selected store.

For how many days will you keep my package?

You must pick up your package during the 28 days following the date of receipt of the email that notifies you that your package is ready. If you omit to pick up your package during that period, the money that was spent on it will be refunded to you and the items will be kept by Doyon Després, which will make them available to customers again.

Cooking and BBQ classes

At which stores are given cooking and BBQ classes?

Six stores have a demonstration kitchen where cooking and BBQ classes are given. Those are the Brossard, Drummondville, Granby, Montreal, Quebec and Sherbrooke stores.

How many participants are present in the classes?

All demonstration kitchens are not the same size nor set up the same way, so the maximum number of participants for cooking and BBQ classes differs from one store to another.

All Cooking and BBQ Classes Bread Making Class
Maximum number of participants1 Minimum number of participants2 Maximum number of participants3 Minimum number of participants4
Brossard 12 5 9 5
Drummondville 10 5 9 5
Granby 8 5 - 5
Montreal 8 5 - 5
Quebec 12 5 9 5
Sherbrooke 10 5 - 5

Here are some precisions regarding the previous table:

  1. The maximum number of participants for cooking and BBQ classes is determined according to the available space in the demonstration kitchen of each store.
  2. Cooking and BBQ classes cannot be held if the minimum number of participants has not been reached. Those classes will be postponed to a later date.
  3. The maximum number of participants of the Bread Making class, given at three stores, proves to be inferior to the number of participants of the other classes because the participants require a larger working space.
  4. The Bread Making classes cannot be held if the minimum number of participants has not been reached. Those classes will be postponed to a later date.

A member of our team communicates with the participants who have registered to a class that is subject to an insufficient number of participants to suggest them to register to the same class at a later date.

What is expected from the participants?

Participants are invited to take part in the demonstrations made by the chef, but no one is bound to actively participate. They can therefore choose to get involved or to simple observe the chef while he works and perform the individual activities.

All classes are unique because of their nature as well as the chefs that host them. Each of them gives them their own personal touch to make the experience instructive and pleasant. They describe at the beginning of the class the preferred approach and the plan of the session.

Who are the individuals who host the cooking and BBQ classes and what are their skills?

The chefs who host the cooking and BBQ classes are part of our staff or external collaborators. All of them are trained cooks, baker, or pastry cooks.

  • Daniel Chassé – Granby and Sherbrooke
  • Daniel Pelletier – Drummondville and Quebec
  • Gérard Tibout – Montreal
  • Guillaume Fleury – Brossard
  • Rock Fortin – Brossard

Are the dishes prepared during a class eaten by the participants?

The participants eat all the dishes that they prepare once the activities carried out during the class are done. The amount of food that is prepared in such that the participants eat the equivalent of a complete meal.

What does Doyon Després provide to the participants during a class?

All participants get a booklet, a kitchen accessory adorned with the Doyon Després logo as well as a card thanks to which they get to have a 10% discount with the purchase of items offered at the store after the class or during the week following the class.

Do the chefs give in-store private classes?

Those who wish to attend a private class with friends, family members or colleagues in the demonstration kitchen of one of our stores can submit a request in this regard.

A member of our team will communicate with the chef of the chosen store to determine if it is willing to host that private class.

If you wish to attend a private class with people you know, click on that link, answer the questions, and send the request. A member of our team will communicate with you as soon as possible to tell you if your request can be meet.

How can one register itself to a class?
