Lyon takes pride in joining commercial catering firm Sprint Group

Worcestershire-based commercial catering firm Sprint Group, which celebrates its 25th year in business, is expanding its sales team to meet demand. Ex head chef and AA Rosette winner Martin Lyon joins the Sprint team as their Sales Manager based in East Anglia.

Martin has an impressive CV, with head chef at The Dorchester under Anton Mosimann, The Grosvenor and Prue Leith, amongst his accolades, so is well-placed to support the needs of Sprint’s client-base. Martin was also the youngest chef in the UK to win the coveted AA Rosette whilst at Lewtrenchard Manor in 1987.

Having hung up his chef whites, Martin has enjoyed a career in catering design at Rational, Garner’s, KCM, Airedale and most recently Lockharts, with redundancy – due to the Lockharts and Aggora merger – leading him to join the team at Sprint.

Martin said: “I remember the days when I worked in the kitchens with extremely hot, inefficient appliances and conditions, now you can achieve a really comfortable working environment and I look forward to bringing my experience to Sprint and the team to achieve this for our clients.”

Sprint Group are currently celebrating 25 years of trading and are expanding their operations to ensure they forge their way as the future innovators and industry leaders in the design and installation of commercial kitchens and bars. The team continue to recruit and retain the best in the business to support their growth into the next quarter century.

Sprint Group have enjoyed exponential growth in the past few years and continue to expand their sales and service teams to meet and exceed the expectations of their clients which include an impressive list of well-known brands like The Ivy Collection and Brasserie Blanc.

Martin continues: “I will focus on food development and design as well as energy efficiency in kitchens – a growing trend in the industry in which Sprint aims to excel.”

Sales Director, Ian Bryant, agrees:

“I totally agree with Martin, energy and sustainability are becoming more and more important and need to be embraced. We welcome Martin’s depth of experience not only with his catering equipment knowledge but also having spent so much time as a chef his understanding what a good kitchen needs to deliver under pressure.”
