YOUR OWN BUYING TEAM

At Lynx, we are dedicated to helping hospitality and catering businesses buy better.

Established in 2002, Lynx is a nationwide team of catering and hospitality industry experts and buyers. Our business model is straightforward. We operate a lean structure with no head office costs. Our own income comes from our suppliers who pay us.

As a purchasing company, we work with over 60 category leading suppliers in the hospitality and catering industries who have been our trusted partners for many years Our suppliers include wholesalers, specialist fresh food suppliers, catering equipment providers, utilities and specialist service providers.

This range means Lynx can offer customers choice and quality in every supply category. Our buyers are always sourcing new products and suppliers. That’s why we can offer you like-for-like products and services at lower prices and very often better quality. For start-ups or takeovers, we can help managers make sure an operation hits the ground running with all the contracts and products it needs.

We think it’s our people who make all the difference and another reason Lynx Purchasing stands out from the crowd.

All our people have worked in food and catering at some point so we know the challenges involved and what it’s like to run a hospitality business. We’ve also got over 60 years of buying experience between us, so when you work with Lynx Purchasing, you’ll not only get an experienced pair of hands, you’ll also get the benefit of having some of the best purchasing experts in the industry on your team.
