Lindys are Finalists!

Lindys are Finalists!

Here at Lindys we have had a very exciting 2016 so far, growing the business and moving to substantially larger premises, and we have some fantastic news to share…

We are Finalists!

Now in its twelfth year, The Test Valley Business Awards is well established as the ideal platform for all Test Valley businesses, especially new and smaller enterprises, to gain the recognition they need to grow; celebrating achievements and providing invaluable networking opportunities.

This year has had over 160 entries and the standard of entries has been high with the TVBAwards Steering Committee saying ‘our judges were particularly impressed with what they experienced; talking to, visiting and reading about each business that entered’.

We are thrilled to announce that not only were we nominated for the awards, but we have been selected as Finalists in not one, but two categories!

  • Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Wilkins Kennedy
  • New Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Test Valley Borough Council

The TVBAwards2016 is on 22nd September 2016 and will features guest speaker TV Presenter Chris Packman.

Thanks to everyone who nominated us, we appreciate it.

and see how we get on!

by Lindy's

Lindy’s Food & Coffee House on the Walworth Business Park, Andover has signed a contract with Cengage (EMEA) Learning on Walworth Business Park to provide onsite catering for all their staff.

We are fast becoming one of the most sought after corporate caterers in the area, already supplying a number of key companies. Our fresh deli-style approach and varied buffet lunch selection seem to be are a hit and they are going from strength to strength! We continue to serve lunches and barista coffee from our Food & Coffee House on the Walworth Business Park.

Cengage Learning (EMEA) Finance Director & Chief Operating Officer, David Rae, said that “We are looking forward to working with Lindy and her team. We are pleased to be able to offer our staff Lindy’s appealing range of barista coffee and deli style lunches in house.”

Director of Lindy’s, Lindy Darmanin, added “When Cengage approached us to discuss their requirements it was apparent that a change was needed in their current onsite canteen offering. We are delighted to be working with Cengage, this is an exciting time for us, we are a small team who are passionate about what we do and we want every customer to feel as important as the last one we served.

Lindy’s Food & Coffee gets another 5 Star Food Rating – this time at our onsite catering facility based at the new Ocado Site on Walworth Business Park.

The busy Barista Coffee and Deli Style Food House located on Walworth Enterprise Centre is already rated as 5 star in Test Valley Borough Council’s Food Hygiene awards, but our second catering facility based on the new Ocado site on Focus Way has also maintained the same high quality standards.

As announced in October, Lindy’s was given “exclusive rights” to provide on-site catering for the workforce until Summer 2015 on the new Ocado site by the principal contractors, Buckingham Contracting Group Limited.

Lindys Food & Coffee House has been given ‘exclusive rights’ to provide on-site catering for the workforce on the new Ocado site by the principal contractors, Buckingham Contracting Group Limited.

The new catering facility will become live October 2014 and will be ongoing at least until June 2015.

John Johnson (Asset/General Manager of the Walworth Business Park) is thrilled that Lindys Food & Coffee House is providing this service to the new Ocado site and Lorraine Renshaw (Centre Manager) said that Kier are pleased to be associated with Lindy and her reputable catering business which enhances the Business Park, adding that her catering service has been an asset to the Walworth Enterprise Centre and Walworth Business Park.

Lindy added “I am so proud that Buckingham Contracting Group (Ocado’s principal contractor) have chosen us to provide this service and they can be assured that they will get the 5* rating service that we pride ourselves on at our shop.

When I opened the Lindys Food & Coffee Shop in December it was to offer local businesses good, decent food and coffee at a fair price. As a qualified chef I am passionate about food and feeding people.

As anyone who has started their own business will appreciate it is hard work – literally 24/7 but if you are passionate about what you are do then you run on adrenaline. Our customer base has grown incredibly and we love to see our regulars, likewise our Corporate Catering side has expanded at an amazing pace.

I like supporting and providing a service to local people and businesses and what gives me pleasure is that people are now calling us to request our service! As my dear father said to me “Lindy just do what you do, people will come and you will not need to worry”. Of course I still worry and I still have my vision of 6 sites and it will happen!

Pop in and see us at 28 Walworth Enterprise Centre.
