What our customers say

The Works

Roger Bolton​​​​ - Owner, The Works

"Lynx has been our purchasing partner for many years. Their approach to business partnership is top class and have proactively influenced our buying decisions on many occasions. They are also amazingly responsive, you never have to wait long for a reply which helps us make timely decisions. A company definitely in the "Good guy" category and I would recommend to anyone looking for a purchasing partner in a heartbeat."

Fayre Do's

Zoe Cook - Co-owner, Fayre Do's

Location caterer Fayre Dos specialises in providing freshly cooked, high-quality meals for film and TV locations, often in unusual settings, as well as at a range of prestigious sporting events. Co-owner Zoe Cook says: “Before we worked with Lynx Purchasing, we had a number of issues with one of our major food suppliers, which basically came down to the fact that as a relatively small business, we felt that we sometimes got lost in the mix. ”With Lynx, we now have someone in our corner who we can call on when we need to, and we now get much better consistency of supply. Lynx reviews our buying regularly, and so we know we’re getting the best prices on everyday purchases. “We also now have access to a specialist butcher, and because we don’t have set menus, we have access to very high-quality produce at good prices, because we have that flexibility to take advantage of availability. “Lynx has also negotiated rebates, along with vouchers and incentives, which we hugely appreciate.”

Unity Works

Lynn Parker - Operations Manager, Unity Works

"We’re a charity, running five cafés across London, staffed by people with learning disabilities. They’re not big sites, and one of our challenges in the past has been placing the smaller minimum orders we need at a decent price, because we’re below the spending level the big suppliers want. We’d also had particular issues with finding a butcher and fresh produce supplier that can meet our requirements. Lynx has resolved all that for us. We’re getting the majority of our products through one major wholesaler, and getting both quality and value for money. Lynx genuinely cares about what we’re doing, and always pull out the stops to help us."
