Hospitality businesses cautious about changing suppliers in the current tough market are being encouraged to take a Test Run by buying specialist Lynx Purchasing.
With the first quarter of the year traditionally the quietest, it’s a good time to trial the benefits of working with a purchasing company, says Rachel Dobson, managing director of Lynx Purchasing.
“Our Test Run challenges operators to give us one product area and a chance to demonstrate the savings we can make,” says Dobson. “It’s a risk-free way for operators to experience the benefits of using a purchasing company, making savings without any impact on their operation or on the customer experience.
“We’ve got a proven track record in delivering savings for businesses in every sector of hospitality, and across the full range of products and services they need. So, for the Test Run, we’re asking operators to give us just one product category to review.
“That could be a kitchen staple, but equally might be cellar gases, business rates or staff uniforms. With more consumers than ever taking a flexible approach to food and drink, maybe we can help with new vegan menu options or low and no alcohol drinks choices.
“As with every supplier recommendation we make, there are no fees or contracts, and it is completely open and transparent. There’s literally nothing to lose by taking a Test Run, and big potential savings to be made.”
The Test Run is being supported by a marketing campaign that will spotlight the savings that Lynx Purchasing has made for existing customers in key hospitality sectors including hotels, restaurants, pubs and bars.
“The Test Run is an opportunity to see how we work with our satisfied customers, and to experience the same benefits,” says Dobson. “Once we’ve delivered savings, and great products and service, we hope they’ll consider trialling another category – which is how most of our customers begin their relationship with Lynx Purchasing.”
