Retail own brand and private label
As Europe’s largest private label coffee roaster and owner of the iconic Lyons coffee brand, we know what consumers want from the coffees they enjoy at home.
With more than 20 years’ experience, our expertise is reinforced by our unrivalled insight into multi-national coffee markets. This means we’re able to keep bang up to date with consumer drinking habits – and our scale enables us to swiftly develop new products in response to new trends.
Quick service restaurants
When it comes to coffee out of home, no one serves as many cups as quick service restaurants. We help them with all the essentials to serve quality coffee at maximum speed.
Employees are more demanding than ever about the quality of their coffee, and rightly so. Did you know that 53% of employees who leave work to buy coffee says it’s because the quality is better?
We work with caterers across a range of sectors and are confident our insight and Total Coffee Solution will help you keep customers coming back for more.
Independent coffee shops
Authentic interiors, barista technique and a range of crafted coffees continue to set the scene. Our team of experts work with coffee shops to help them get their offer right, so they can focus on running their business.
Hot drinks are big business for pubs. They’re now one of the most popular places to grab a coffee, so it’s easy to tailor an offer and improve revenue. And with 34% of consumers eating out once a week, the numbers soon stack up.
Insight from our quarterly research told us that 8 out of 10 consumers will consider ordering a coffee over dessert when eating out. But, the coffee has to be great and leave a lasting impression to generate repeat business.
Farm shops and garden centres
Cultivate a taste for great coffee and increase your profits. Eating and drinking hubs at garden centres and farm shops are increasingly popular, becoming destinations in themselves. We can help you keep your offer fresh and seasonal.
Bakeries and delis
Artisan coffee, freshly baked rolls and cakes are the perfect partners. Don’t let your coffee let you down. We’ll help you decide which brew method and coffee is right for your business and manage the results.
Visitor attractions and destinations
It’s crucial to get the quality and price right. Visitors will normally only have one coffee and a slice of cake, so it needs to be good and exceed expectations. Of course, we can help you with your coffee and machine, but our experts can also help you get everything else right too.
7 out of 10 leisure travellers are dissatisfied with the quality of coffee in hotel bedrooms. 30% said they’d be put off returning to a particular hotel after a bad coffee experience. Talk to us to create a coffee offer that will increase customer satisfaction and keep your guests coming back.
Branded coffee houses
With more than 6,000 branded coffee outlets in the UK, we know it’s a competitive market. Big or small, we work with them to support their individual offer. Our experts will help you select the right coffee machine for your business and then train your people, so you get the most from your kit. And, we have more engineers on the ground than any of our competitors, so your coffee keeps flowing day and night.
Offer something different for your customers. Blending is a great way of adding additional flavours and dimensions that demand a premium price. For a truly customised approach, our team of roasters will work with you to create a blend to match your budget and customers' palettes.
