Lynch’s Foodstores – a real success story
For award-winning family-run business, Lynch’s Foodstores, success is a team effort – and with over 400 staff across their nine stores, Conor Lynch says their colleagues are the real stars.
“We really believe that our staff are the stars of the store and are central to creating that sense of community with customers, making the store an enjoyable place to shop.”
Conor Lynch proudly heaps praise on his staff, citing their hard work and dedication as the key factor in their Skeoge store winning the Community Store of the Year title at last year’s Neighbourhood Retailer Awards.
“We were delighted to win Community Store of the Year. It was great for the team to get the recognition they deserve, and they got lots of praise on social media from our customers for winning such a high-profile award,” said Conor.
Lynch’s Foodstores now consists of nine stores, employing 427 staff, with their award-winning Skeoge store their fifth franchise, opening in November 2018.
The store opened with 45 employees in 2018 and now has almost 100 staff members at the store. Since opening the doors, the family and staff have worked hard to grow and progress the services and offerings available.
