Steeped in tradition and synonymous with quality, Lyons was founded in 1894 by Joseph Lyons. Playing a key role in establishing the Territorial Army, Joseph Lyons helped to create strong links to the British military throughout the brand’s long history with a heritage of supporting Britain’s servicemen and servicewomen.
The Lyons story dates back to Victorian society where the brand became famous for serving great tea and coffee in its opulent 24 hour ‘Lyons Corner Houses’. Located across prominent locations including the world famous Trocadero on Piccadilly Circus, Coventry Street, The Strand and Tottenham Court Road, the Lyons brand delivered breath-taking multi-storey teashops to some of London’s very best circles. This included extravagant services at Buckingham Palace Garden Parties, the Chelsea Flower Show, the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships and Windsor Castle.
Now over 120 years later, the Great British brand still has the same dedication to detail and customer service. Catering to the high demand for a great tasting product which is competitively priced, Lyons has successfully introduced a new, modern range of instant coffees for all tastes and moods.
